Mauritania hosts over 2,000 urban refugees and asylumseekers and more than 55,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012 in the arid south-eastern region close to the Malian border.

Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, large-scale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali. In March alone, 928 new arrivals were registered in Mbera.

As the situation in northern Mali continues to be unstable, Mauritania struggles to cope with the growing needs of new refugees and the vulnerable host communities.

KYANGWALI, UGANDA — The refugee population in Uganda stands at more than 1.4 million and growing, thanks to conflicts in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The influx is forcing Uganda to rethink its decades-old policy of allocating plots of land for refugees to farm and live on.

The Congolese refugees arrive on the Ugandan side of Lake Albert aboard rickety boats.

More than 60,000 have come since the start of the year. They are fleeing a fresh wave of communal violence in the northeastern D.R.C.

Messages clés

Dans les provinces de l’Ituri, du Nord Kivu et du Sud Kivu, on assiste à une dégradation continue de la situation sécuritaire et humanitaire accompagnée des exactions de tout genre (tueries, destructions d’habitats, enlèvements, pillages). La semaine passée, il a été signalé d’une série d’attaque dans 7 villages avec près de 3/5 habitations incendiées. Cette situation ne fait qu’exacerber la situation déjà fragilisée dans cette zone qui a connu, depuis janvier 2018, le déplacement d’environ 10,000 ménages agricoles.
