ÉBAUCHE D’AVANT-PROPOS DE LA MINISTRE BIBEAU POUR LE RECUEIL DU SYMPOSIUM SUR L’ÉGALITÉ ENTRE LES SEXES DU CALP
Bien que les conflits entre les États aient considérablement diminué ces dernières années, les conflits au sein des États – auxquels participent fréquemment des acteurs non étatiques – sont en hausse. Par conséquent, des millions de personnes doivent se déplacer et composer avec des possibilités réduites, un accès limité aux services et un avenir incertain.
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES
Over the last few months, the peaceful coexistence of people living in Gedeo and West Guji has been disturbed. The Gedeo–Guji tension has resulted in thousands of people being displaced from their homes by violence. Nongovernmental organizations, such as Catholic Relief Services and World Vision, are collaborating with the Government of Ethiopia to address people’s immediate needs through holistic responses for internally displaced people (IDPs)—addressing health, nutrition, sanitation and shelter needs.
U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia Michael Raynor presided over a ceremony awarding grants to four local civil society and community based organizations in Ethiopia through the Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Program managed by U.S. Embassy’s Community Grants Office.
The projects will be implemented over the next year, directly impacting the lives of over 500 people in need of assistance including children, internally displaced people, youth, people with disabilities, and local communities at large.
In November, 26,000 new displacement were monitored by the UNHCR-led Protection and Returns Monitoring Network (PRMN), a decrease compared to last month. Half of the displacements occurred in Bakool region due to lack of livelihood as pastoralists search for greener pastures. In 2018 so far, PRMN has monitored 858,000 internal displacements due to conflicts, floods and drought.
It is estimated there are 2.6 million internally displaced people in Somalia.
Despite a significant reduction in fighting, humanitarian needs remain very high and continue to increase.

Crises affect more people, for longer, and conflict remains the main driver of humanitarian and protection needs. The Global Humanitarian Overview presents detailed, prioritized and costed plans for how the United Nations and partner organizations will respond worldwide
(Geneva, 4 December 2018) – The world is witnessing extremely high levels of humanitarian need driven primarily by armed conflicts that generate enormous suffering and displacement for years on end.
This quarterly update is compiled by OCHA ROSEA to support growth in innovative policy, practice and partnerships in humanitarian action to better engage with disaster-affected communities across Southern and Eastern Africa.
Les crises affectent un plus grand nombre de personnes, durent plus longtemps et les conflits demeurent la cause principale des besoins humanitaires et de protection. L’Aperçu de la situation humanitaire mondiale présente des plans détaillés, priorisés, et chiffrés sur la manière dont les Nations Unies et ses organisations partenaires répondront à ces besoins à travers le monde
Global trends and challenges
More than 1 per cent of people across the planet right now are caught up in major humanitarian crises. The international humanitarian system is more effective than ever at meeting their needs – but global trends including poverty, population growth and climate change are leaving more people than ever vulnerable to the devastating impacts of conflicts and disasters.
This Weekly Bulletin focuses on selected acute public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 57 events in the region. This week’s edition covers key new and ongoing events, including:
