On Monday 16 October 2017 the Council adopted the EU Annual Report on Human Rights And Democracy in the World in 2016.
2016 was a challenging year for human rights and democracy, with a shrinking space for civil society and complex humanitarian and political crises emerging. In this context, the European Union showed leadership and remained strongly committed to promote and protect human rights and democracy across the world.
Ongoing UNHCR project in BiH designed to strengthen municipal capacities for management of data on the needs of the internally displaced and returnees significantly increased quality and effectiveness of assistance.
In April 2017, UNHCR Representation in Bosnia and Herzegovina initiated a BAM 2.5 million project to enhance sustainability of the (internally) displaced people (IDPs) and returnees and to support management of data about this population data management in six municipalities - Bihać, Novi Grad, Kotor Varoš, Lukavac, Doboj and Čapljina.
In 2016, we increased our humanitarian efforts in some of the world’s most challenging environments. As the war in Syria entered its sixth year, our £26.6 million emergency response programme supported over three million vulnerable people living in Syria as well as refugees in three neighbouring countries. In Iraq and Yemen, as the crises continued to shatter lives, we provided life-saving aid, often in areas that other organisations are unable to access.

MCC is known for supporting access to education around the globe by paying school fees, supporting vocational training and providing school supplies. What you might not know is that MCC also works with its partners to improve the quality of education that is offered.
From teacher training to involving the community in school management, here are some examples of partners creatively improving education:
The notion of disaster risk reduction (DRR) has come a long way from emergency response to disaster risk management with emergency response now being only one of the components of a broader approach that deals with disaster risk in terms of prevention, preparedness and response.

During the peak of the European migration and refugee crisis, hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers and migrants arrived in the European Union via the Western Balkans. In 2015, 600,000 registered at the Presevo camp alone, on the border of Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). Key components of crisis management fell to non-EU states along the Western Balkans route, primarily Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, which paradoxically were not consulted on broader, European-wide responses.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), within the project "Disaster Risk Reduction Initiative", in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Physical Planning and the City of Zenica, has begun works on the rehabilitation of the Vardište landslide in Zenica.
