On Monday 16 October 2017 the Council adopted the EU Annual Report on Human Rights And Democracy in the World in 2016.

NAIROBI – After more than a year of ration cuts caused by a shortage of funds, new donor contributions have now allowed the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to resume providing full food rations to refugees in Kenya’s Dadaab and Kakuma camps starting on 1 April.
With new resources received since the beginning of the year, WFP is now able to restore the full food ration for all refugees from April to July. However, the funding currently available for cash transfers – which make up 30 percent of the refugees’ food assistance – will last only until May.
