HIGHLIGHT

  • The UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative (SRSG) and head of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), Mr. Babacar Gaye, requested that all concerned parties ensure the implementation of the Brazzaville agreement as he believes that the recent crisis in Bangui is partly due to its non-application.

Iraq Crisis Situation Analysis - Schools, 19 October 2014

OVERALL ANALYSIS

With 1.8 million IDPs across Iraq, one of the most pressing challenges facing humanitarian assistance has been shelter. The large influx of displaced during the summer holidays, when most schools were empty, allowed for the occupation of school premises as a temporary solution. With the lack of sufficient alternative accommodations available, the Government has been forced to re-schedule the beginning of the academic year from 10 September to 22 October, and on the expectation that this provides for sufficient time to have these schools evicted.
