GENEVA, Jan 19 2018 (IOM) - IOM, the UN Migration Agency, is appealing for nearly USD 1.4 billion to address the needs of over 80 million people in 50 countries in 2018. These vital funds will support people displaced within the borders of their own countries, migrants, refugees and the communities that host them, people returning to their areas of origin and people experiencing or recovering from conflict and natural disasters.
Préface par le Coordinateur Humanitaire
La République centrafricaine demeure un pays fragile. Meurtrie par plusieurs années de conflit dont l’impact perdure, elle doit faire face à des défis tant structurels que conjoncturels. Ces derniers mois, la violence a connu une fréquence et un niveau qui ont fait de l’année 2017 celle de toutes les inquiétudes. De multiples foyers de tension ont vu le jour à travers le pays et ont gagné des régions qui autrefois jouissaient d’une certaine stabilité.
An integrated team of ceasefire monitors and staff from the United Nations Mission in South Sudan travelled to the border town of Kaya in Morobo County. With more refugees returning from Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo and UNMISS establishing a base in Yei, the plan is to conduct frequent, robust patrols along the still rather deserted Yei-Kaya road.

Working with Partners
■ UNHCR works closely with the Government of South Sudan to deliver assistance and protection services to refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs).
2017 saw a host of new and quickly deepening humanitarian crises from Southeast Asia to Africa. But behind this rising tide of forced displacement was an isolationist and xenophobic political backdrop that could render 2018 even worse, especially given the lack of diplomatic leverage and leadership required to resolve intractable conflicts.
