REGIONAL STRATEGIC OVERVIEW
During November, the refugee outflow to neighbouring countries continued, with an average of 2,480 South Sudanese arriving in Uganda daily, the majority from the Greater Equatoria region. At the same time, fighting continued to drive internal displacement. In Central Equatoria, several thousand people fled from locations such as Morobo, Lainya and Yei to Kajo-Keji, while in Western Equatoria insecurity in Yambio caused the temporary displacement of some 750 people.

Quand ceux-ci sont principalement agricoles, ce qui est le cas de 70 à 80 pour cent des personnes dans les pays en développement, c’est alors la survie même des populations qui est en jeu.
I am launching today, on behalf of the United Nations and hundreds of our humanitarian partners across the world, the Global Humanitarian Overview for 2017.
This appeal 2017, comprising strategic and coordinated response plans covering 33 countries, is calling for US$22.2 billion – the highest amount we have ever requested.
Les appels et plans de réponse dans 33 pays visent à aider 93 millions de personnes
For 2017, humanitarian partners will require $22.2 billion to meet the needs of 92.8 million people in 33 countries. The initial appeal for 2016 stood at $20.1 billion to meet the needs of 87.6 million people in 37 countries. This is in stark contrast to the $2.7 billion called for in the first six inter-agency humanitarian appeals launched in 1992. The last quarter century has seen an overwhelming shift in frequency, scale and magnitude of humanitarian emergencies.
