DARFUR: WAITING FOR RAIN
The onset of the rainy season, ongoing conflict and insecurity, and constraints on access to people in need presented persistent challenges to the delivery of humanitarian assistance in Darfur between July and September. Filling gaps in delivery of services created by the March expulsion of 13 international NGOs and dissolution of three national NGOs remained a priority.
Hope amid the crises
Recently, good news has been in short supply. Journalists and civil society leaders continue to disappear or to be assassinated in the Russian Federation, the situation in the Caucasus remains explosive both in the north (Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia) and the south (Georgia and Nagorny-Kabarach). The crises in Darfur, Somalia and the DRC drag on.
Civil Society Organizations Educate Community about Election Process
Three civil society organizations based in Central Equatoria state - Mugwo Youth Association (MUYA), Payawa Scholarship Scheme (PASS) and Kanda Ya Nini - recently conducted an event in Mugwo Payam to raise awareness about the 2010 elections. All three organizations are partners in Mercy Corps' Localizing Institutional Capacity in Southern Sudan (LINCSS) program, funded by USAID.
"We need to make sure that our community is aware.
NEW YORK, 30 September 2009 - UNICEF welcomes the adoption today by the United Nations Security Council of a resolution calling for increased protection from sexual violence for women and children caught up in wars and conflict.

- Distributions from the NFI Common Pipeline supported 12,054 households in September with 36,410 non-food items (NFIs) and emergency shelter (ES) from the NFI Common Pipeline in Darfur.

UPDATE FROM THE FIELD: DARFUR, SEPTEMBER 2009
OVERVIEW: DARFUR AND UN ACTION'S ROLE
Sexual violence has been a prominent and devastating feature of all humanitarian conflicts, Darfur included. UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict (UN Action) unites the work of 12 UN entities with the goal of ending conflict-related sexual violence. It is a concerted effort by the UN system to improve coordination and accountability, amplify programming and advocacy, and support national efforts to prevent sexual violence and respond effectively to the needs of survivors.
- In September in ROS, 6,006 households were supported by the NFI Common Pipeline and 5,000 households were supported through parallel pipelines. All of the households were flood-affected in Khartoum State and supported through distributions conducted by CRS, SRCS and IPDO.
Zinc Seen as Breakthrough Cure for Diarrhea
Sogola, Mali-Generations of residents have watched their children fall ill each rainy season with diarrhea, which kills an astonishing 1.6 million children under 5 every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)-more than either malaria or AIDS. It also stunts growth, and forces millions-adults and children alike-to spend weeks at a time off work or school.
But USAID, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and other groups have begun distributing zinc supplements to villagers in Bangladesh, India, Mali, …

The term also reflects the different roles that MAG takes on within this sector, from direct clearance activities and training to Physical Security and Stockpile Management.
