The Security Council today decided to extend until 15 May 2019 the mandate of the United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) ‑ operating in an oil-rich contested area on the border of Sudan and South Sudan ‑ while simultaneously reducing the Mission’s military troops and increasing its police presence.

Contexte actuel (septembre 2018)
Le Tchad fait face à trois crises principales, dans un contexte de faible développement et de pauvreté chronique : les mouvements de population, l’insécurité alimentaire et la malnutrition, et les urgences sanitaires. Il est estimé, d’après le Plan de réponse humanitaire 2018 révisé que 4,9 millions de personnes sont dans le besoin (52% de femmes) dont 2,1 millions particulièrement vulnérables ciblées pour une assistance humanitaire.
Between August and October this year, the Peace and Security Council (PSC) held meetings on Libya, Lesotho, Guinea-Bissau, South Sudan, Burundi, the Central African Republic (CAR), Darfur and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Very few new initiatives, however, were launched. In some cases, such as Burundi, the PSC again called for action by the region – in this instance, the East African Community (EAC) – and in others, such as the CAR, it expressed support for the African Union (AU) initiative in the country.
Key findings and recommendations
Extent of statelessness
Community leaders in Nyala's Otash camp for displaced people reported that more than 200 people died because of disease and a lack of food in the past three months.
Sheikhs and omdas in Otash camp, South Darfur, conducted a survey which indicated that 284 people, mostly elderly and children, died in the past three months. Results pointed out that causes of death included a deterioration in health and hygiene following the collapse of toilets.
One of the sheikhs told Radio Dabanga that also malnutrition and diseases were reported causes of death.
Nakivale, one of the oldest refugee settlements in Uganda, was opened in 1958 and officially established as a settlement in 1960. The settlement hosts more than 100,000 refugees from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, and South Sudan. During the Burundian crisis in 2015, the population of the settlement greatly increased and has since remained this high. Markets are bustling and food is available for purchase, but many refugees struggle to afford basic items.
Gaps & Challenges
Kiryandongo refugee settlement, originally established in 1990, was re-opened in 2014 during the South Sudanese emergency and now hosts almost 60,000 refugees. The majority of refugees are from South Sudan, with a small number from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, and Sudan. Although now closed to new arrivals, partners continue to facilitate settlement of relocated protection cases.
Gaps & Challenges
Tunis – The Ministry of Labour of Libya convened a round table discussion yesterday (12/11), with the support of IOM, the UN Migration Agency, with Libya’s regional partners to discuss effective mechanisms of labour migration management to enhance the benefits of migration to the State of Libya, to the countries of origin of migrants residing in Libya, and to migrants themselves.
COOPI’s worldwide operations increased once again in 2017. It means also that the number of humanitarian crises we have tried to respond to as effectively as ever has increased. We have decided not to limit ourselves to intervening when there is an emergency, only to then move on elsewhere; instead, we remain alongside the communities hit by those emergencies in the medium-to-long-term, so as to help them overcome their critical issues and launch a reconstruction process.
