Description: Take a closer look at the Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluations (IAHEs) of the response to the crises in the Philippines (Typhoon Haiyan) in 2014 and in the Central African Republic and South Sudan in 2015. The video provides a brief overview of the situations that triggered the Level Three (L3) emergency responses, and presents the questions the IAHEs considered: how relevant and how effective were the responses? Were the expected results achieved? What was the level of engagement of national actors and governments? And which areas need to be strengthened?”
Independent evaluators and a member of the IAHE management group speak about the evaluation findings, as well as good practices and lessons learned identified.

Description: (Nairobi, November 1, 2016) – Seleka rebels killed at least 37 civilians, wounded 57, and forced thousands to flee when they razed a camp for displaced people in the Central African Republic on October 12, 2016, Human Rights Watch said today. United Nations peacekeepers deployed outside the camp in the town of Kaga-Bandoro failed to halt the attack.
Human Rights Watch interviewed 32 victims and witnesses in Kaga-Bandoro and in the country’s capital, Bangui, between October 14 and 21. They said that the mostly Muslim Seleka forces, possibly with assistance from Muslim civilians, shot, stabbed or burned to death the civilians, including at least four women, five children, three older people, and four people with disabilities. The casualty numbers are most likely higher because some victims were buried quickly. In addition to field research, Human Rights Watch, using satellite imagery analysis, identified at least 175 destroyed homes in the neighborhoods around the camp and 435 destroyed huts in the camp itself.
