InterAction’s latest publication, Choose to Invest in Development and Humanitarian Relief FY2013, outlines key funding recommendations for the U.S. government to support accounts in the federal budget. This strong investment will make great strides to reduce global poverty, tackle environmental challenges and increase peacekeeping efforts to support stability and security.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is currently facing one of the most serious funding crises in its history. Global recession and country budget cuts have left the agency with a significant budgetary shortfall in 2002, and prospects for the immediate future of the crisis appear bleak. Mr. Anne Willem Bijleveld, Director of Communications and Information for UNHCR, briefed InterAction member agencies on the UNHCR funding crisis, its impact on refugee programming, and agency strategies for securing financial stability in the future.
West Africa, including Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, is entangled in a massive complex emergency that continues to devastate the livelihoods of many civilians. The political, economic, and humanitarian underpinnings of the crises among the three nations covered in this report are inextricably interlinked. The legacy of chronic corruption, the quest for mineral wealth and continuing cross-border violence have left the region with only fragile hope for peace and reconciliation.
Twenty US-based international humanitarian organizations on Nov. 27 expressed concern over the recent violent attacks against refugees along the West African border area separating Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia and called on US Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright to work with governments to increase security to allow "unhindered" assistance to refugees.
