A. Situation Analysis
Description of the Disaster
The migration phenomenon has increased worldwide in recent years due to armed conflict, violence, economic crises and the desire for family reunification. It is believed that 3.4 per cent of the world's population is living outside its country of origin; this represents more than 247 million people.
Italy - IOM reports that 302,486 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea in 2016 through 28 September, arriving mostly in Greece and Italy. Some 166,610 people have arrived in Greece and 132,044 in Italy during 2016.
Total arrivals on the Mediterranean through the month of September in 2015 were 518,181 – nearly 60 percent higher.
Tropical cyclone Matthew expected to impact Hispaniola
Africa Weather Hazards
Prolonged heavy rainfall during the season throughout the Niger River basin has triggered flooding and inundation along the Niger River in Mali, Niger, and Nigeria. Seasonal Inundation is also expected to be greater than it has been for many years across the inner Niger delta in Mali.
Low and poorly distributed seasonal rainfall across parts of central Senegal and The Gambia have led to strengthening moisture deficits.

Why GAO Did This Study?
INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND
- WFP provided the Government and cooperating partners trainings on planning and implementing food security and nutrition interventions within the context of the national response plan.
Foster a culture of accountability and protection from sexual exploitation and abuse at all levels of the humanitarian system.
Encourage institutionalization of AAP and PSEA within humanitarian organizations, including local and national NGOs, INGOs, Red Cross Red Crescent movement and UN Agencies.
Support operationalization of AAP and PSEA at collective level as well as individual agency level.
Libya continues to be the main departure and transit point for departure from North Africa towards Europe. As of 15 September 2016, the Libyan Coast Guard rescued/intercepted a total of 11,271 people in different locations along the Libyan coast, mainly Al Zawiyah, Tripoli, Tajoura and Zwara. Since January 2016, Libyan local authorities confirmed the death of at least 660 people presumed to be aslyum seekers and refugees who drowned while attempting to cross the Mediterranean.
Participants in the regional technical consultation on agricultural and food prospects in the Sahel and West Africa, held from 19 to 21 September 2016, in Lomé, Togo, draw the following conclusions:
1. As part of preparations for the agro-pastoral season, States and their partners provided support to farmers with inputs (seeds, fertilizers, pesticides) and agricultural equipment, even if these efforts have not met the expressed needs.
Relatively well-distributed rainfall in most of the region with above normal in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal.
Normal availability of pastures in the pastoral areas of the region.
Increase in the number of food and nutrition insecure people in North East Nigeria, including 65,095 people in phase 5 (famine)
Following a brief period of suppressed rainfall, Guatemala registers heavy precipitation during the last week
Africa Weather Hazards
Prolonged heavy rainfall during the season throughout the Niger River basin has triggered flooding and inundation along the Niger River in Mali, Niger, and Nigeria. Inundation is also expected to be greater than it has been for many years through the inner Niger delta.
Continued adequate moisture conditions raise hopes for average to above-average harvest
The Intertropical Front (ITF) started its southward retreat in early September but it remains either at or north of its average position, which could mean a normal to longer growing period.
From early July until mid-September, mostly average to above-average rainfall that has been well-distributed over time has fallen throughout most of the region (Figures 1 and 2), which is ensuring good growing conditions.
West Africa and the Sahel-Sahara region are faced with peace and security challenges that weaken states and affect state-citizen relations. The emergence and proliferation of violent extremist groups aggravate the climate of fear and insecurity, and the actions of these groups affect peace efforts, sustainable development, and human rights. Faced with this reality, policymakers have recognized that preventing violence requires a multidisciplinary and multistakeholder approach.
Avec ces nouveaux financements, l’AFD poursuit son accompagnement en faveur de deux secteurs clefs, l’eau et l’assainissement et la formation des jeunes, pour le bien-être des populations et l’émergence du Sénégal.
