High risk countries and potential impacts on food security and agriculture
In view of the potential impact of the 2018/19 El Niño on food security and agriculture, high risk countries in Southern Africa, Horn of Africa, Asia and the Pacific and Latin America should be prioritized for further monitoring, analysis and early action.
• Drought internally displaces an estimated 253,600 people as of September 30
• Some drought-affected households likely to experience IPC 4 levels of acute food insecurity by January
• Conflict, strained capacity hinder humanitarian response efforts
AIDMI's publication of Southasiadisasters.net is titled "Beyond AMCDRR Ulaanbaatar " and focuses on themes that now inform the disaster risk reduction agenda of the region post AMCDRR 2018. The region of Asia-Pacific is highly exposed to risk of many disasters. In 2017 alone, more than 6,500 people lost their lives in Asia following more than 200 disasters that affected 66.7 million people.

This framework document aims to introduce a proactive approach to assess adaptation needs and encourage timely adaptation. The idea behind this approach is that if an assessment shows that specific policies and practices of stakeholders are at risk of failure due to climate change, corrections are encouraged and losses or damages can be prevented. The approach focuses on identifying whether and when the performance of policies, management, and social-cultural practices drops below a decisive level due to climate change, and adaptation is required.
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.

KEY DEVELOPMENTS ￼￼￼￼￼
By Patrick Fuller
ULAANBATAAR, 5 July, 2018 - The role that safety nets and social protection programmes can play in reducing disaster risk features prominently on the agenda of the 2018 Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) this week.
A panel comprised of development and humanitarian actors, with senior representatives of the disaster management authorities from Mongolia and Pakistan, put forward a convincing case for greater investment in social protection policies and programmes.
New approach puts theory of Climate-Resilient Water Management into practice on the ground
Climate-driven water scarcity could reduce GDP growth rates in South Asia by as much as 6%.1
Climate change will increase water-stress through irregular rainfall patterns and increased incidence of floods and droughts.
The Action on Climate Today (ACT) programme has developed a conceptual framework that clearly distinguishes Climate Resilient Water Management (CRWM) from traditional approaches to water management.
• Nearly 213,000 undocumented Afghans return from Iran and Pakistan
• Increasing violence results in approximately 2,300 civilian casualties from January to March
• USG provides nearly $62 million in humanitarian assistance to respond to acute needs across Afghanistan in FY 2018
This booklet features a collection of stories that reflects the widespread work of ADPC across Asia and the Pacific and beyond. It not only showcases ADPC's extensive work to achieve its vision of safer communities and sustainable development through disaster risk reduction but also governments' commitment, partners' support, and the courage of people in disaster-prone nations.
This short report presents a selection of the key findings, achievements and lessons learned from the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) over the period 2012– 2017. A more comprehensive overview of all of HICAP’s work is provided in the annual programme reports. This summary report focuses on selected HICAP approaches to science, action research, pilot activities, and communications and outreach. In doing so, we aim to highlight:
• GoP extends legal status for Afghan refugees through June 2018
• Humanitarian NGOs continue operations while awaiting registration decisions from the GoP
• USG responds to needs of vulnerable IDPs, returnees in FATA and KPk
