El informe de la FAO indica un repunte de las cosechas en la mayoría de los países de bajos ingresos con déficit de alimentos
The Government of Sudan’s long record of stifling dissent continued in late 2016 and early 2017. Between October 2016 and April 2017, at least 77 people were subjected to arbitrary arrests and detention in Sudan. These opposition political activists and human rights defenders are routinely subjected to torture and other ill-treatment and detained for long period without charges solely for the peaceful exercise of their rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association.

September 20, 2017 (NYALA) - Protests by the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Kalma camp outside Nyala have forced the South Darfur government to move a rally organised to receive President al-Bashir to a site at two kilometres from the crowded camp.

FAO report notes rebounding harvests in most low-income food-deficit countries
21 September 2017, Rome-- Robust harvests in Latin America and rebounding agricultural conditions in Southern Africa are on course to improve the global food supply situation, but ongoing civil conflicts and climate-related shocks are affecting progress towards hunger reduction, according to the new edition of FAO's Crop Prospects and Food Situation report.
About DTM`s Flow Monitoring Surveys
This research started in October 2015 and is being conducted within the framework of IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) activities for monitoring populations on the move through the Mediterranean and Western Balkan Routes to Europe.
Compilation of available statistical data indicates that the arrivals to Europe through the Mediterranean in the first eight months of 2017 is lower when compared to the same period in 2016. As of 31 August 2017, national authorities in Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Spain registered 131,167 newly arrived migrants mostly from the Middle East, Africa, South and Central Asia which is in a sharp contrast to 297,255 recorded during the same period in 2016 (56% decrease).
The European Union and the United Nations have launched a new partnership to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls, backed by an initial dedicated financial envelope of €500 million.
What is the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls?

Khartoum, 19 September 2017. The humanitarian community in Sudan is deeply concerned about the impact of the lack of funding for the Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) 2017 on the well-being of millions of people in need of humanitarian assistance in Sudan. The United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan, Ms. Marta Ruedas, thanks donors for their continued generosity towards those in need in Sudan and urges that funding be stepped up to ensure people in need receive the life-saving assistance they urgently require.

The African Union/United Nations Hybrid Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) focuses on the protection of civilians—especially vulnerable groups such as internally displaced persons who remain unable to return to their traditional homes due to conflict. The Mission and its UN Volunteers respond to the changing peacekeeping environment by placing increased focus on stabilization activities that preserve gains achieved. This is a complex mandate that adapts to evolving circumstances in hope of making a sustainable transition towards peace in Darfur.
