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.
According to the recently published Global Humanitarian Overview, the estimated total need of humanitarian assistance in 2019 amounts to EUR 22 billion.
This means that 132 million people in approximately 40 countries are in need of emergency relief, the majority of them in Africa and the Middle East.
The world’s worst humanitarian crisis is currently in Yemen, but the situation is extremely difficult also in Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Sudan.
