We the undersigned organisations call upon UN Security Council members to take action to bring about an immediate ceasefire in Yemen, end the humanitarian crisis and support the UN Special Envoy's efforts towards an inclusive political solution to the conflict.
Editor's note: The following joint statement was issued on April 25th by seven international humanitarian organizations operating in Yemen, namely Action Against Hunger, Médecins du Monde, Norwegian Relief Council, Saferworld, Save the Children, Tearfund, and War Child. Action Against Hunger republished the statement on May 2, 2017 in light of new warnings from the United Nations against possible attacks on Hudaydah port.
Introduction and purpose of the research
It is widely believed that the practice of INGOs recruiting national staff, particularly in support of humanitarian response, can undermine national NGO capacity, but there has been very limited analysis about the ways in which it affects local NGOs’ ability to respond to crises themselves or the impact that it has on their ability to retain high quality staff.
This statement is made on behalf of Save the Children and 16 NGOs, comprised of national, regional and international human rights and humanitarian civil society actors, including organizations that provide humanitarian assistance and support to vulnerable children and families in Yemen.
We are concerned by the rapidly deteriorating situation in Yemen as highlighted in the High Commissioner’s oral update on the implementation of Human Rights Council resolution 33/16 of October 2016.2
27 humanitarian agencies working in South Sudan have warned that unless substantial funds are immediately provided to those working on the ground, organisations will struggle to stop famine spreading across the country in the next few months. The statement follows Monday’s declaration of famine in parts of the country.
