Mali: Complex Emergency Situation Report No. 31 (as of 25 April 2013)
Food insecurity remains a major concern in the northern regions (Gao, Timbuktu and Kidal), where at least one household in five faces severe food shortages.
Cholera outbreaks often occur during the rainy season, and could be worse this year without sufficient investment in prevention.
Internal population movements continue from north to south and vice versa. Displacements from north to south represent 62% of the total of 37,900 people censed in both direction between 12 January and 31 March.
Internally displaced people (IDPs) are estimated at 282,548 by the Commission of Population Movement. UNHCR estimates that 173,779 Malian refugees are living in neighbouring countries.
Humanitarian Appeal (CAP) for Mali is 26 per cent funded.
Around $107 million has been mobilized of the total $409.7 million required. Humanitarian partners are preparing the midyear review of the appeal.
