The world’s greatest refugee crisis is unfolding in Syria and the neighbouring countries. The Government will once again step up its effort to alleviate suffering and help to ensure the best possible protection of the civilian population. We have therefore proposed an increase in humanitarian support for the Syria crisis of NOK 500 million,’ said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.

1.1 Food security situation
Overall food security classification shows that half of the population in Karamoja (50%) is food insecure, of which 12% were found to be severely food insecure. While these findings suggest a marginal increase in food insecurity at regional (Karamoja) level since June 2015, there were marked district level variations:
Significant deterioration in Kaabong, Kotido, Napak & Abim districts;
Marked improvement in Moroto & Nakapiripirit districts;
The quest of the last 15 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) taught us that Global Goals can motivate and help sustain leaps in human progress. It also taught us that the specifics matter. In some places, the MDGs became a widely-recognized, consistent and important driver of local progress; in others, the role and impact of the MDGs was more ambiguous. A lot depended on way the MDGs were implemented: if local change agents made them meaningful locally; if local leaders drew on their legitimacy and visibility; if they were employed to solve real-life problems etc.
