HIGHLIGHTS

In Darfur, fighting between government forces and armed movements has continued in recent years, lately in the Jebel Marra area of Darfur. This continues to severely impact civilians, notably women and children. Inter-tribal tensions also continue to trigger conflict, which causes displacement of civilians and disruption of basic services. Conflict also prevents the return of displaced people to their areas of origin. Access to some areas, including where there is active conflict, remains denied by parties to the conflict.

In the absence of a political solution, the humanitarian situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate. In search of safety and livelihoods, over 2.8 million people continue to be on the move in Yemen. With their safety nets depleted, as savings dwindle and remittances from abroad dry up, more people are moving to makeshift and spontaneous settlements and are turning to negative coping strategies for survival. This includes increased child labour and early marriage. The added stresses on host communities are also increasing as the economy collapses.

Des millions de personnes sont touchées par l’insécurité alimentaire et la malnutrition, en particulier dans la bande sahélienne.

Chad faces a number of simultaneous and inter-connected humanitarian crises in a broader context of chronic vulnerability. Insecurity in the region has caused significant population movement from neighbouring countries (Sudan, CAR, Nigeria) as well as internal displacement. Meanwhile, millions are affected by food insecurity and malnutrition, especially in the Sahel belt. In terms of health, the prevalence of some epidemics (measles, malaria) persists. Lastly, recurrent natural disasters such as droughts and flooding are exacerbated by the El Nino phenomenon.
