El Niño conditions are forecast up to January 2020, rains with irregular distribution in time and space during May have been observed with low accumulations affecting the beginning of basic grain crops in the region.

Charity Commission Inquiry report into Oxfam GB
Background and Purpose of this study
CONTEXTE DE L'OPERATION
Agency accepts findings of UK regulator and is implementing recommendations
Oxfam GB is deeply sorry for its failure to prevent sexual abuse by its former staff in Haiti, Caroline Thomson, Chair of Trustees, said today.
Thomson said Oxfam GB would use the report of the Charity Commission’s Statutory Inquiry as a spur to greater improvement and said that the agency accepted it should have improved its safeguarding further and faster after Haiti.
Oxfam Great Britain has today welcomed and accepted the UK Charity Commission’s judgement following its investigation into serious sexual misconduct by members of Oxfam GB staff in Haiti in 2011. Oxfam GB has apologized for its failings in its investigation and case management at the time and, as Executive Director of Oxfam International, I underline Oxfam GB’s apologies and reaffirm our organization’s abhorrence for, and zero-tolerance of, abusive behaviour, sexual or otherwise. It is a violation of everything Oxfam stands for.
The Global Humanitarian Overview published on 4 December announced funding requirements of $21.9 billion for 21 Humanitarian Response Plans and the Venezuela Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan. By the end of May, the requirements had reached $26.42 billion.
