Snapshot 6 - 12 August
Central African Republic: The CAR President Catherine Samba-Panza named a Muslim as the new Prime Minister. Renewed clashes have displaced 20,000 people in Batafango (Ouham) since July and 17,000 people in Bambari (Ouaka) since June. A total of 890 security incidents were recorded in 2014, hampering humanitarian access.
- Khost & Paktika Situation Update
Currently, 15,489 displaced families have been assessed in Khost and Paktika provinces; with 12,201 in Khost, the majority in Matun and Gurboz districts, and 3,228 in Paktika with the majority in Barmal district. Although agencies on the ground have been conducting assessments, providing services and distributing assistance since mid-June, there continues to be significant needs for mine clearance and risk awareness education, water and sanitation facilities, food assistance as well as health services.
In 2013 UNMAS made the world safer. Whether it was through spearheading humanitarian mine action in Afghanistan and Mali, assisting United Nations deployment in the Central African Republic, completing the landmine survey of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, attaining agreements to demine in the West Bank or building secure weapons storage facilities in Libya, the lead United Nations entity on explosives hazards saved lives.
