Hurricane Matthew - One year later
Over the last 12 months, since Hurricane Matthew, CBM and partners have been working to ensure that persons with disabilities and other more at-risk community members in Haiti and Cuba are able to rebuild their lives.
CERF enables fast, flexible and needs-based support for people affected by humanitarian emergencies. The UN General Assembly established the fund in 2005 to provide timely assistance in crises. Since its operational launch in 2006, CERF has developed a reputation for its ability to kick-start humanitarian action, scale up the response to emergencies and serve as a lifeline for people struggling to survive in the world’s most underfunded crises.
En 1997, le Groupe URD s’institutionnalisait et faisait le pari qu’il était possible d’installer le premier think tank français de l’humanitaire dans une ferme en Drôme provençale. Pari gagné, comme vous pourrez le voir dans ce rapport d’activité. Cette année 2016 a été celle du premier Sommet humanitaire mondial, occasion pour le Groupe URD de porter au plus haut niveau les propositions qu’il développe depuis plus de 20 ans et de jouer un rôle actif à différents niveaux.
In 1997, Groupe URD became an official organisation and embarked on the journey to establish the first French humanitarian think tank in a farm in the South of France. It was quite a gamble, but as can be seen in the 2016 Annual Report, it paid off. 2016 was the year of the first World Humanitarian Summit.
Today’s global challenges continue to grow. We currently have five ongoing emergencies ranked at the highest level of operational complexity and urgency in Iraq, Nigeria, South Sudan, in the Syria region and Yemen. While the majority of these are conflict emergencies, the frequency of natural disasters is also on the rise – with Cyclone Winston hitting Fiji in February 2016 and Hurricane Matthew striking Haiti last October. The need to strengthen preparedness and resilience is becoming more and more critical.
70 YEARS AND COUNTING
Seven decades ago, the world was recovering from a devastating world war. For millions of child survivors of that war, peace still encompassed a landscape of significant challenges and damaged futures. UNICEF was created to help those children – no matter who they were, no matter where they were from. The only thing that mattered for the nascent organization was achieving results for children in need.
The title of this year’s annual report was inspired by our global family, which includes the women and children we serve, field staff, community health workers, volunteers, medical personnel, donors, and our many partners. As a family, we can learn so much from one another about respect, dignity, and love. I’m proud of CMMB’s (CATHOLIC MEDICAL MISSION BOARD) family and our many accomplishments highlighted in this report. Before you turn the page, I’d like to share some highlights:
Drought. Disease. Earthquakes. Hurricanes. More than 10.6 million people across Latin America and the Caribbean were affected by these disasters in 2016.
Each emergency presented its own set of challenges, whether it was addressing affected livelihoods, the safety of families forced to flee from violence, the growing risk of vector-borne diseases or the sheer scale of major disasters such as the earthquake in Ecuador (April 2016) and Hurricane Matthew in the Caribbean (October 2016).
The annual report is a global Food Security Cluster accountability product that must be read in conjunction with the evolving global humanitarian environment.
In 2014, the Joint FAO/WFP Evaluation of the Food Security Cluster Coordination was endorsed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Programme Committee and the World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Board, recommendations of which formed the backbone of the global Food Security Cluster (gFSC)
