JUBA (15 December 2017) – Four years after the beginning of the South Sudan conflict, the leading humanitarian organization CARE is deeply concerned by the risk of famine as rates of hunger and malnutrition continue to rise. Presently, seven million South Sudanese are in need of lifesaving assistance – deeply affected by conflict, displacement, hunger and a collapsing economy.
The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.
The practice of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) participating in the leadership and management of country level clusters is occurring more frequently in recent years. In several situations, cluster leads are approaching NGOs to take on roles in the cluster, such as coleadership. This review draws on the experiences of NGOs in cluster leadership and management in the four focus countries of the NGOs and Humanitarian Reform Project: Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Zimbabwe.
This report analyses the current state of global humanitarian reform efforts from an NGO perspective by synthesising a series of mapping studies carried out between November 2008 and February 2009 that looked at humanitarian reform in five different countries: Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Sudan and Zimbabwe. Lessons from other contexts are also brought in to strengthen the analysis and provide an overview of humanitarian reform.
Dadaab Refugee Camps, Kenya (June 18, 2009) - They were originally built to accommodate 90,000 refugees. Today the population is at 280,000 and is growing by an average of 7000 a month. On World Refugee Day, June 20, CARE is calling attention to the urgent needs of the people in the refugee camps of Dadaab, Kenya.
Overcrowding in the camps is placing severe stress on the resources of the region and surrounding communities. UN standards for the treatment of refugees call for 20 litres of water per person per day.
Since the beginning of the UN-led humanitarian reform process, there have been several suggestions about the need to better involve NGOs - particularly national and local NGOs - in the various aspects of reform.
NAIROBI (October 3, 2006) - More than 120 million people in sub-Saharan Africa are permanently living on the edge of a humanitarian emergency, according to a new report released today by CARE International UK.
1. SOS Africa - permanent crisis in Africa?
By 2020 the world will have spent more than =A3165 billion this century fighting emergencies in Africa'. Yet it has been estimated that just =A3132 billion, if spent differently, could instead halve hunger by 20152. Rather than simply saving lives, this money could be spent improving lives and ending the cycle of emergencies.
In 1984, famine in Ethiopia prompted the unprecedented mass action of LiveAid to raise funds for the eight million people facing starvation.
