40th & 41st Meetings (AM & PM)
High Commissioner Warns: ‘We Can No Longer Pick Up the Pieces’
The real solution to the suffering and plight of refugees was not humanitarian action but political decisiveness, a top United Nations official told the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural) today as it began its thematic debate on related issues, returnees and displaced persons.
As of October, aid organizations had reached 3.5 million of the 3.8 million people to be assisted in 2014, though the response needed to be sustained.
Heavy rains in the past two weeks have caused flooding in the displacement sites in Mingkaman, Lakes State.
Biometric registration was underway in Malakal, Upper Nile State, with 10,000 people in the new and improved Protection of Civilians site register
(Juba, 25 September 2014): So far in 2014, donors have contributed close to US$1.2 billion for humanitarian action in South Sudan, including over $980 million for projects in the South Sudan Crisis Response Plan.
As high-profile conflicts jostle for public and media attention, other humanitarian crises are pushed off the news agenda
Reflecting on the responses to the number of man-made emergencies detonating or still smouldering around the world earlier this year, from Syria to Ukraine and from Nigeria and South Sudan to Central African Republic (CAR), Kofi Annan appeared uncharacteristically weary.
“You sometimes have a feeling that the global community – and even the big powers – can only focus on one crisis at a time,” the former UN secretary general said.

0. MAJOR CHANGE SINCE THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE HIP
In Somalia, the humanitarian situation today shows many parallels to the period ahead of the devastating 2011 drought that triggered a declaration of famine, which caused the excess deaths of 258 000 people the majority of them being children under five.
Snapshot 9–15 July
oPT: 178 Palestinians have been killed since the launch of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge on 8 July. Around 17,000 people have sought shelter in UNRWA schools. Rockets from Syria and Lebanon have hit the north of Israel, raising fears of the conflict spreading.
Democratic Republic of Congo: More than 30,000 people are estimated to have been displaced in North Kivu, South Kivu, and Katanga in June, due to FARDC military operations and fighting between armed groups.
The Central Emergency response Fund (CERF) had another record year in 2013, as donors contributed US$477 million to support emergency response efforts in 45 countries.
Whether in high-profile natural disasters or forgotten emergencies, the humanitarian community once again relied on rapid and strategic CERF funding to kick-start the response and to keep life-saving programmes running.
This year’s United Nation ‘appeal’ document represents the largest call for funds to date – US$12.9 billion, an increase of US$4.4 billion on last year. This was largely due to the enormous needs in Syria, where US$6.5 billion is required to meet the needs of Syrians inside the country and of refugees in neighbouring countries. There are also marked increases in requirements for the Central African Republic (CAR), and for the Philippines following typhoon Haiyan.
(Genève, 16 décembre 2013): En 2014, les organisations humanitaires auront pour but d’atteindre 52 millions de personnes avec de l’aide, et leurs plans de réponse combinés demanderont un financement de 12.9 milliards de dollars américains.
Global Humanitarian Response for 2014
Around the world, tens of millions of people are affected by crises and need humanitarian aid. Governments and other national and local responders carry the major burden in helping their people in need. Inevitably, in the most intense and large-scale crises, their response leaves some gaps; and the multilateral humanitarian system is founded on the principle of helping to meet those urgent needs that exceed the capacity of those with primary responsibility.
Today nine new humanitarian assistance country profiles go live on the GHA website. Three new donor profiles, Ireland, Norway, and Qatar; and six new recipient profiles, Burundi, Mali, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, and Syria as well as the Philippines added in the light of the current Typhoon Haiyan emergency response.
