A SNAPSHOT OF EVENTS IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC
Between May and September 2011, a number of disasters including floods and storms continued to devastate Asia and the Pacific region.
Floods occurred in China from June onwards, affecting over 36 million people and killing at least 355 people. Despite direct economic losses of nearly US$6.5 billion, no international assistance was requested.
This document outlines the global operational priorities identified by the ICRC in 2006. It is based on the yearly internal review and planning process conducted primarily by the 80 field delegations and missions.
Severe consecutive droughts combined with 23 years of conflict have left 400,000 people displaced and the country struggling with high levels of poverty, poor nutrition and limited access to medical services and education.
Chronic water shortages and widespread food insecurity prevail, and especially in southern and eastern parts of the country. As of Spring 2005, the central province of Ghor has been additionally cut off by heavy snowfalls.
Security incidents continue to occur daily.
