World Humanitarian Data and Trends presents global and country-level data-and-trend analysis about humanitarian crises and assistance. Its purpose is to consolidate this information and present it in an accessible way, providing policymakers, researchers and humanitarian practitioners with an evidence base to support humanitarian policy decisions and provide context for operational decisions.
The information presented covers two main areas: humanitarian needs and assistance in 2016, and humanitarian trends, challenges and opportunities.
Violence against women is a global public health problem. In Uganda, more than half of all women have experienced violence at least once in their life, most likely from an intimate partner, leaving them feeling unsafe in the place they should feel the safest – their home.
“Violence against women is everywhere in Uganda,” says Dr Olive Sentumbwe, National Professional Officer, WHO Uganda. “Women from all parts of society experience repeated abuse, which takes a toll on their physical and mental health.”
Working Paper No. 209
his report takes its inspiration from the United Nations Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child initiative, which calls for countries to do everything possible to protect the lives and futures of all women, children and adolescents. It follows the approach used for the
State of the World’s Midwifery 2014 report, but focuses on 21 of the 23 countries in the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) East and Southern Africa region.
Action Against Hunger aims to empower women in Northern Uganda using a two pronged strategy; a) cash transfers, skills training and VSLAs for income generating activities, and b) interventions to prevent violence against women at the household and community level. These interventions combine to become a transformative learning experience for participating individuals and communities.

The interlinked challenges of climate change and food security are most evident in the agriculture sector, which (combined with land-use change) produces about a quarter of global greenhouse emissions. At the same time, climatic stresses on agriculture and food systems present formidable food security and livelihood challenges to millions.
LWR partnered with NAMUBUKA Grains Area Cooperative Enterprise (ACE), a registered apex organization, to reach 7,766 smallholders farmers in Uganda. The project aimed to address gender-based constraints that men and women farmers face as well as the broader issues of food insecurity and low income.
• Many countries across the African continent face recurrent complex emergencies, frequent food insecurity, cyclical drought, and sudden-onset disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and storms. In FY 2016, as in previous years, USAID/OFDA not only responded to urgent needs resulting from disasters, but also supported DRR programs that built resilience and improved emergency preparedness, mitigation, and response capacity at local, national, and regional levels.

Au nom du Bureau régional pour l’Afrique du PNUD, j’ai le plaisir de présenter le deuxième Rapport sur le développement humain en Afrique, consacré à la concrétisation accélérée de l’égalité des genres sur le continent.
L’égalité des genres n’est pas une priorité de développement nouvelle pour les pays d’Afrique. Son importance est depuis longtemps reconnue à l’échelle du continent.
El presente Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano en África 2016, dedicado a la igualdad de género, toma el relevo del Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano en África 2012, en el que se analizaba la importancia de garantizar la seguridad alimentaria de todos los africanos. Ambos informes persiguen un mismo objetivo: tratar lo que cabe considerar dos puntos inconclusos de la agenda en el marco de la trayectoria de desarrollo de África. Los dos han sido reconocidos como prioridades importantes para los Gobiernos y los ciudadanos de los países africanos.
