Gracias al apoyo de más de 114.000 colaboradores, y casi 700 empresas e instituciones públicas, en 2016 cumplimos 35 años de compromiso de lucha contra la pobreza, la desigualdad y la exclusión.
La educación, la autonomía económica, la lucha por los derechos de las mujeres, la especial atención a la infancia, la salud o la acción humanitaria son los ámbitos más relevantes de nuestra actuación este año, que se ha extendido en 19 países de América Latina, África, Asia y también en España. 35 años de compromiso y de resultados.
Girls’ education and climate change are currently two of the most topical global issues in the development arena. Due to a myriad of limiting factors, more girls around the world are falling through the cracks in terms of their educational access, retention, and learning. At the same time, many countries and regions are facing more frequent and more intense climate-related extreme weather events such as heat waves, floods and droughts.

FIELD-LEVEL IMPLEMENTATION URGENTLY REQUIRED
The Call to Action on Protection from Gender-based Violence in Emergencies, a multi-stakeholder initiative launched in 2013 by the governments of the United Kingdom and Sweden, aims to fundamentally transform the way gender-based violence (GBV) is addressed in emergencies, so that every humanitarian response provides safe and comprehensive services for those affected by GBV and mitigates GBV risk from the earliest phases of a crisis.
Purpose: To identify and share key lessons and recommendations on the role played by the Ethiopia Shelter & NFIs Cluster in the Humanitarian response from 2015 to 2016. Lessons learnt and recommendations will be used for improving and informing future shelter cluster responses, by evaluating the impact and effectiveness of the coordination services.
Background & Context
Since conflict erupted in Yemen in March 2015, Yemenis, Somalis, national returnees and people of other nationalities have fled Yemen into the Horn of Africa, namely Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan.
Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants continued to move in complex flows from the Horn of Africa and Yemen region. Migration and displacement dynamics remained complex this quarter, with ongoing migration, new displacement, and simultaneous return movements.

• Many countries across the African continent face recurrent complex emergencies, frequent food insecurity, cyclical drought, and sudden-onset disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and storms. In FY 2016, as in previous years, USAID/OFDA not only responded to urgent needs resulting from disasters, but also supported DRR programs that built resilience and improved emergency preparedness, mitigation, and response capacity at local, national, and regional levels.
Training of surge capacity staff working on Targeted Supplementary Feeding Programmehas increased the reporting capacity in Afar and Oromia regions.
In November, there were slight improvements in actual beneficiary figures, compared to October. In most regions, the increase is mainly due to new screening figures. Only in Oromia did the beneficiary figures decline, due to the likely impact of Belgand Meherharvest in some of the areas.
Four Mobile Health Nutrition Teams (MHNT), in Dalefage, Hadellela, Dulechaand Semurobi, were trained in screening for malnutrition, admission and treatment.
Treatment of target beneficiaries with specialized nutritious food continued in November, with increased admissions mainly due to new screening figures.
In November, the MHNTs reported 85% cure rate and 15 % default rate for children under five. For pregnant and lactating women cure rate of 81% and default rate 5% were reported.
Treatment activities of the moderately acutely malnourished cases continued as usual in November.
The increase in planned and actual beneficiary numbers can mainly be attributed to new screening figures.
The November performance indicators show 98% cure rate for children under five and, 100% cure rate for pregnant and lactating women. Invariably, death and default rates for both groups have remained low.
Following low level TSFP activities in October due to delayed submission of screening figures, treatment activities for moderately acute malnourished (MAM) cases picked up in November in both regular TSFP woredasand through the Mobile Health and Nutrition Teams (MHNTs).
The MHNT program performance indicators reported 97% cure rate for children under five, and 96% cure rate for pregnant and lactating women. Death and default rates remained low for both groups.
