4 September 2015 – A lack of funding in Sudan could have serious repercussions on the ground, the World Food Programme (WFP) said today, warning that the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service, which serves as a vital aid link in the country, needs nearly $10 million to remain operational.
In September, the Security Council would focus on a range of issues, from the humanitarian crisis in Syria and the political climate in Lebanon to the broad settlement of conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation said today at a Headquarters press conference.

UN extends L3 designation for South Sudan
Depuis 2003, quand des millions de civils ont fui la violence chez eux au Soudan, le Tchad leur a ouvert ses portes, accueillant plus de 400 000 réfugiés soudanais. Le Programme alimentaire mondiale (PAM) leur a toujours apporté une assistance alimentaire vitale, mais aujourd'hui ils risquent de tomber dans l'oubli suite au manque de financement et aux nouveaux déplacés qui se réfugient au Tchad.
La situation relative au Criquet pèlerin est restée calme en août. Seuls des ailés solitaires en faibles effectifs étaient présents dans des parties des aires de reproduction estivale dans le nord du Sahel de la Mauritanie, du Niger, du Tchad et du Soudan. Toutefois, les bonnes pluies généralisées tombées sur toutes ces zones ont rendu les conditions écologiques favorables, ce qui permettra à une reproduction à petite échelle d’avoir lieu en septembre et octobre.

Widespread, persistent, and heavy rainfall over the past several weeks have led to saturated ground conditions and localized flooding in several regions of West Africa. The continuation of heavy rainfall is forecast for the upcoming week, maintaining flooding risks throughout several areas in Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, western Niger, eastern Guinea and Sierra Leone.
JERUSALEM, 4 September 2015 (IRIN) - The Facebook request was simple: “Man needs a home.” The actual demand was perhaps less so. Late in August, Israeli activists began asking fellow citizens to take strangers – asylum seekers or refugees just freed from detention – into their homes. Dan Levi, a university student in Jerusalem who turns 27 in a few days time, was one of those to respond to the call.
The signing of the peace agreement is a positive development. However, many significant concerns remain to be addressed and the Addis Ababa workshop starting on 04 September will be critical.
Resourcing remains a serious concern with food stocks low in Kenya and Sudan. In Kenya, WFP continues to implement 30 percent ration cuts, which started in the second round of June distributions.
