2017 in brief
7 décembre 2017 – Trente-sept pays, dont 29 se trouvant en Afrique, ont besoin d'une aide alimentaire externe, a mis en garde jeudi l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO) dans son dernier rapport sur les 'Perspectives de récolte et la situation alimentaire'.
Strong cereal harvests are keeping global food supplies buoyant, but localised drought, flooding and protracted conflicts have intensified and perpetuated food insecurity, according to the new edition of FAO's Crop Prospects and Food Situation report. Some 37 countries, 29 of which are in Africa, require external assistance for food, according to the report.
Humanitarian Neeeds Summary

WMO report highlights impacts on human safety, well-being and environment
6 November 2017 (WMO) - It is very likely that 2017 will be one of the three hottest years on record, with many high-impact events including catastrophic hurricanes and floods, debilitating heatwaves and drought. Long-term indicators of climate change such as increasing carbon dioxide concentrations, sea level rise and ocean acidification continue unabated. Arctic sea ice coverage remains below average and previously stable Antarctic sea ice extent was at or near a record low.
Un rapport de l'OMM met en évidence les répercussions sur la santé humaine, la qualité de vie et l'environnement
International prices of wheat increased in September mostly because of weather-related concerns, while maize quotations fell further on crop harvest pressure. International rice prices remained generally firm, supported by seasonally tight availabilities of fragrant rice and strong demand for higher quality Indica supplies.

13 octobre 2017 – Les résultats d’une nouvelle étude publiés à l’occasion de La journée internationale pour la prévention des catastrophes prévoient une augmentation continue du nombre de déplacés parmi les populations des pays les plus vulnérables aux aléas naturels, à moins que des progrès importants ne soient réalisés en faveur d’une meilleure gestion des risques.
Ranju has tears in her eyes as she reflects on the devastation she has experienced.
The 26-year-old widow had just lost her husband from sickness two days before the floods came. She then saw her house washed away in the north-eastern Indian state of Assam which has been particularly hard hit by the worst flooding to strike South Asia in more than a decade.
More than 40 million people have been affected by the seasonal monsoon floods that have swept through India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Early warning can save lives. Knowing something horrible is about to happen gives you a chance to prepare or get away — a painful lesson that is slowly being learnt across flood-prone South Asia.
Three years ago, the Karnali and Babai rivers in mid-western Nepal overflowed, sending floodwaters rushing through downstream flatlands, killing dozens. There were 31 deaths in the single district of Bardiya alone.
