Germany, Nigeria, Norway and the United Nations hosted the High-Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region which brought together 27 nations, 24 regional and international organizations and representatives of national and international civil society. We convened to recommit to work together to address the humanitarian needs and build the resilience of the over 17 million people still affected by the regional crisis and to identify ways of strengthening the collective response.
La grave crise humanitaire qui sévit dans la Région du Lac Tchad a aggravé les conditions de vie déjà précaires d’une grande majorité des populations de cette région. L’accès aux services de base et à l’eau potable en qualité et en quantité suffisante constitue un élément essentiel dans l’assistance à ces populations. Mais le contexte géologique et hydrogéologique particulier de la région du Lac Tchad est à l’origine des problèmes de salinité qui réduisent le taux d’accès à l’eau des populations locales.
It is one of the largest humanitarian crises of the present day: millions of displaced persons and refugees who are urgently in need of assistance are living in the Lake Chad region. Germany is making available 120 million euros in financial assistance and, as co-host of a donor conference in Oslo, mobilised additional international support on Friday (24 February).
The EU and the International Organization for Migration have launched a joint initiative to make migration routes safer and to provide help for people returning to their countries of origin. Germany is contributing 48 million euros to support the initiative.
Foreign Minister Steinmeier issued the following statement today (7 November) following his meeting with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi in Berlin:
“More than 60 million people – never before have so many people been forced to flee their homes. Of course, the humanitarian crisis in Syria and the neighbouring countries is a special focus of our aid efforts.
Dans le cadre de l’aide humanitaire que l’UNHCR apporte aux réfugiés au Tchad le Gouvernement fédéral allemand a accordé à l’UNHCR basée au Tchad une subvention à hauteur 2.000.000 € (Environ 1.311.914.000 FCFA) pour son projet intitulé:« Assistance et protection des réfugiés soudanais et des déplacés internes du Tchad»
Humanitarian need remains very high in many humanitarian crisis situations in Africa. Germany has therefore made an additional 8.2 million euros available for humanitarian relief projects run by UN organisations and NGOs in Africa.
Markus Löning, Federal Government Commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid, issued the following statement on the move:
The Federal Foreign Office and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development are making 12 million euros available to fund emergency assistance for the people affected by the drought in the Sahel zone. A large part of the funds is to go to the World Food Programme, to be used for its emergency food aid in the Sahel countries. Part of the commitment is earmarked for German non-governmental organisations operating in the region and for the International Committee of the Red Cross.
2008 was a year of major humanitarian challenges. Natural disasters such as Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar, the devastating earthquake in China, flooding in India and Brazil or the hurricanes in the Caribbean once again highlighted the dangers of the unbridled forces of nature. In the complex political crises in Africa, as well as in Afghanistan and Iraq, unresolved conflicts made it impossible to improve the precarious humanitarian situation of people living there.
The Federal Foreign Office has made available 1 million euro to provide immediate humanitarian relief for internally displaced persons in Chad. The money will help fund relief and protection activities organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Drinking water, food, household equipment and hygiene items are all urgently needed. In addition, emergency medical care is to be secured for the displaced persons.
The Chadian capital N'Djaména has weathered a rebel attack over the past few days.
The German government has decided to mandate the involvement of the German Armed Forces in two UN missions in Sudan. The mandate of the German contingent to the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) is to be extended by one year. In addition to this, German troops are to participate in the United Nations African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) in the west of the country.
The UNMIS mandate is to be extended essentially unchanged until 15 August 2008.
The German government provided more than 900 million euros for humanitarian aid in the period from 2002 to 2005. In 2006 it supported projects in around 80 countries.
The Federal Foreign Office has made available 451,800 euro from its humanitarian aid budget to the German Red Cross. These funds will be used to finance a German Red Cross project in eastern Chad aimed at providing basic health care for refugees from the Sudan's Darfur region. The relief measures will benefit around 20,000 people.
The situation of the up to 200,000 Sudanese refugees in eastern Chad has deteriorated during the last few weeks.
The Federal Foreign Office has allocated some 270,000 euro from its humanitarian assistance budget to the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (Bundesanstalt Technisches Hilfswerk - THW) for relief work in eastern Chad. In consultation with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) a THW team will shortly fly out to Chad to help establish a refugee camp there.
The Federal Foreign Office is to make available 250,000 euro from humanitarian assistance funds to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to look after Sudanese refugees in Chad.
Following the outbreak of hostilities between Sudanese Government troops and units of the rebel Sudanese Liberation Movement in the eastern Sudanese province of Darfur, huge numbers of refugees have crossed into neighbouring Chad since the beginning of this year.
The Federal Foreign Office is making 200,000 euro available to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for the protection and care of refugees from the Central African Republic in Chad.
