A. Situational context including new developments
HIGHLIGHTS AND STATISTICS

In 2016, we increased our humanitarian efforts in some of the world’s most challenging environments. As the war in Syria entered its sixth year, our £26.6 million emergency response programme supported over three million vulnerable people living in Syria as well as refugees in three neighbouring countries. In Iraq and Yemen, as the crises continued to shatter lives, we provided life-saving aid, often in areas that other organisations are unable to access.
The number of new refugees, asylumseekers and migrants present in Serbia continued dropping to 4,245 counted on 31 August. 3,903 (i.e. 93%) of them were accommodated in 18 governmental centres across the country, while smaller groups were observed in border areas or Belgrade.
On 10 August, authorities accommodated 28 men and boys, previously sleeping rough in the woods near the northern border, in Preševo Reception Centre.

Both factors are cited to be the reasons for 0.75 million children not attending schools. “It is 50 per cent of the total 1.5 million out-of-school children in the province,” said officials of the Elementary and Secondary Education Department while quoting a recently-conducted survey by the education department.
