Flooding is a natural disaster that can damage large areas in the vicinity of rivers, and in the case of flash floods, also in the vicinity of smaller streams. The Global Risks Report 2017 (1) lists extreme weather events, of which flooding is the main risk in most countries, as the risk with the second highest potential impact and the highest likelihood of occurrence. It furthermore seems likely that climate change will aggravate flood impacts in many regions.

Dahlia has carried out a fact-finding-mission in Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia to assess the refugee situation, meet stakeholders and asylum seekers, and attempt to highlight issues that need to be addressed.
Recent weeks have seen a dramatic increase in the number of asylum seekers arriving to in the European Union (EU). The unprecedented number of new arrivals has not only received signi cant media attention but has also stretched the capacity of authorities, non-government organisations and civil society to respond.

CROP AND FOOD SUPPLY SITUATION
Macedonia's September 15 parliamentary elections were the first since the country narrowly avoided an all-out civil war with the brokering of the Ohrid Framework Agreement by the United States and the European Union (EU) in August 2001. Macedonia's future as a unitary state largely depends upon the successful implementation of the Framework Agreement. The underlying problems that sparked the seven-month conflict between ethnic Albanian insurgents and Macedonian security forces remain unresolved and could again erupt.
