VIGILANCES

Retour de la saison des pluies !

Les pluies actuelles et leurs conséquences sur la salubrité des habitats (inondations, boue, détritus, coupure d’eau...) sont favorables à la transmission d’agents infectieux pouvant être responsables de la dengue, de la leptospirose, de gastro-entérites. Ces risques persistent même après l’amélioration des conditions climatiques.

Stockpiles of excess, poorly-secured, or otherwise at-risk conventional weapons continue to pose a challenge to peace and prosperity worldwide. In the wrong hands, SA/LW fuel political instability and violence, while more advanced conventional weapons, such as MANPADS, pose a serious threat to international security. Aging munitions stockpiles may also explode without warning, devastating nearby population centers. Meanwhile, landmines and ERW, including cluster munition remnants, artillery shells, and mortars, continue to kill and maim people even after conflicts end.
