Snapshot 16–22 December 2015
Cameroon: 2.9 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. 2.4 million are in need of protection assistance, predominantly in the Far North Region. The government has reportedly urged men to join self-defence groups in the northern areas affected by Boko Haram. The same reports suggest the government has made provisions in its 2016 budget to support the self-defence groups.
This week, on 17 December, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) will mark its 10 year anniversary. Created in 2005, CERF marked an innovative breakthrough in humanitarian funding by Member States of the UN General Assembly as a “fund for all, by all”. It raises and pools funds before the need arises, and provides fast, predictable funding to partners on the frontlines at the onset of a crisis, as well as financing critically underfunded emergencies.
AMOUNT: EUR 93 000 000
- MAJOR CHANGE SINCE THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE HIP
Fourth modification as of 16/12/2015
A shift between the specific objectives of the Financing Decision is necessary in order to adapt to the current humanitarian situation, which results in the following new breakdown of the HIP budget, namely EUR 80 050 000 under Man-made crises and EUR 12 950 000 under Natural disasters.
Third modification as of 15/10/2015
Snapshot 9–15 December 2015
Airstrikes, shelling and armed clashes continue in the country particularly in Al Bayda, Dhamar, Ibb, Al Jawf Marib, Sana’a, Sadah, and Taizz.
On 8 December, Yemen's government said the country's warring sides are preparing to observe a week-long truce from 15 December while UN-mediated peace talks take place in Switzerland.
Nairobi, 9 December 2015 – The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) launched an interagency appeal for USD 94,130,731 to provide protection and assistance, in 2016, to refugees, returnees and migrants fleeing the conflict in Yemen.
The appeal was launched at a donors meeting held in Nairobi today. Mr Mohamed Abdulkarim A. Assad, Chargé d’affaires of the Embassy of Yemen in Kenya, was the guest of honour at the event that brought together ambassadors, donors and representatives from various organizations.
Snapshot 2-8 December 2015
Jordan: 11,400 Syrian asylum seekers are currently stranded at the border with Jordan, after a recent surge in violence has driven new displacement, doubling the number at the border since October. They face urgent humanitarian and protection needs. The Jordanian Government has increasingly restricted movement across the border since 2013.
A combination of new and renewed conflict, endemic poverty, and poor protection, among others, continued to drive complex population movements from the Horn of Africa and Yemen region this quarter. Governments in the region, and in transit countries along the various migratory routes, endorsed more restrictive measures in efforts to curb irregular migration through their territories. Migrants and asylum seekers alike continued to face significant protection risks, ranging from abuse to abduction and death at sea.
