Concern is growing as the threat of major floods in the Mekong Delta increases. In south Vietnam, water levels are rising rapidly - between 5-10 cms a day and reaching emergency levels in some areas.
National authorities are in the process of evacuating thousands of people from the area, and have mobilised thousands of soldiers to help with the mitigation measures and relief preparations.

The Global IDP Database of the Norwegian Refugee Council has now released an updated country profile on internal displacement in Burma. A summary is presented below. The Database and the Burma profile can be accessed at www.idpproject.org, or the complete profile can be sent to you by e-mail on request (email@example.com).
Burma (Myanmar): focus on humanitarian aid
Forcible displacement is a deliberate policy of Burma's military government. It has three main aims: to break up potential areas of opposition to the regime; to destroy the links between the insurgent movements of ethnic minori=ADties and their local sympathizers; and to make way for large-scale development projects. Over the past decade, up to 1 million people or more have been forcibly uprooted.
The relocations themselves have been carried out brutally, accompanied by rape, pillage, the burning of fields and confiscations of land.

Commission on Human Rights Also Hears Addresses from Dignitaries from Luxembourg, the Russian Federation and Burundi
The Commission on Human Rights this morning heard the Special Rapporteurs on the situation of human rights in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi and Myanmar, and the Special Representative on Rwanda introduce their reports on the latest developments in those countries.
The Karen, Mon and Karenni refugee camps along Thailand's border with Burma have traditionally been small, open settlements where the refugee communities have been able to maintain a village atmosphere, administering the camps and many aspects of assistance programmes themselves. Much of this, however, is changing.
