Our analysis shows that millions of ‘people caught in crisis’ - people living in conflict, and/or who are displaced within their own countries or across borders – are in fact being left behind. Failure to take action now means that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will not be met, undermining the credibility of the international community and leaving millions to die unnecessarily.
East Asia and the Pacific is the most disaster-stricken region in the world.
1 In 2016, disasters affected more than 86 million people in the region, compared with 40 million people in 2015.

Director-General of the UN Office in Geneva,
Colleagues and friends,
It is an honour to be called to this mandate, to assist States to uphold the human rights of their people, in this year in which we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

After decades of progress, hunger - both acute and chronic - is on the rise again. In 2017, a massive humanitarian effort helped to contain famine in South Sudan and avert famine in northeastern Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen. Despite this, the number of people on the brink of severe hunger continues to rise.
UN CHEMIN: NON PAS LE PLUS COURT, MAIS LE PLUS DURABLE
Récemment, le directeur d’une organisation caritative suisse m’a envoyé un livre au titre résolument provocateur: Früher war alles schlechter («Autrefois, tout était pire»). Quelques semaines plus tôt, lors d’un trajet en train dans le nord de l’Inde, nous avions médité sur l’état du monde. Pour l’humanité dans son ensemble, notre «bilan intermédiaire» était positif. Par cet ouvrage, mon compagnon de voyage voulait certainement me dire que nous n’étions pas seuls devant ce constat.
MONTHLY DISASTER REVIEW AND OUTLOOK
JUNE | DISASTER MONITORING & ANALYSIS (DMA) UNIT AHA CENTRE
GENERAL OVERVIEW OF JUNE 2018
21 August 2018, Siem Reap – While there has been extraordinary economic progress in the ASEAN region, pockets of multi-dimensional poverty remain. If those who have been left behind – the poorest of the poor – are to be reached, governments need to adopt new approaches that are people-centred and empower and equip local governments to take innovative action.
These were among the key takeaways from ASEAN-China-UNDP Symposium on Localising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Realizing Poverty Eradication, held this week in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Elections are an important mechanism in democratic and peace processes. Their purpose is to provide citizens with an opportunity to choose freely their political leaders and allocate power peacefully. However, underlying tensions in a society and high-stake competition can also result in violent and fraudulous elections. Based on its mandate in peace, development and democracy promotion, FDFA is supporting countries in a democratic transition as they address the challenge of holding elections.
A challenge for Human Security
Member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations should increase the speed of negotiation for, coordination of, and responses to emergency food aid releases to enhance food security in Asia.
