UNEP’s Disasters and Conflicts sub-programme is comprised of four operational pillars: post-crisis environmental assessment, post-crisis environmental recovery, disaster risk reduction and environmental cooperation for peacebuilding.
In 2009, the United Nations Member States decided to make further and decisive progress, within a decade, in controlling illicit drug supply and demand. Many illicit drug markets have reached global dimensions and require control strategies on a comparable scale. In that context, there is a need to better understand these transnational markets and the manner in which they operate. This year's World Drug Report is a contribution towards that objective.
Civic education provides a positive framework for collective civic identity. As such, it can be a stabilizing factor in societies suffering from violent conflict and its aftermath.
The emphasis of civic education on public participation in governance overlaps with human rights, but the two fields have distinct and separate conceptual bases.

Challenges while conducting PDNAs
Communicating in Recovery is a best-practice guide for people or organisations managing information in a post-emergency environment. It is targeted and practical, can be applied to any type of emergency in any geographical area and can be used in large or small emergencies.
The guide can be used alongside a series of training modules devised by the Australian Red Cross and which are freely available here: http://www.redcross.org.au/training-modules.aspx
High food prices in 2007-2008 threatened the livelihoods and food security of billions of people worldwide for whom getting enough food to eat was already a daily struggle.

a primera edición de este Informe de Buena Práctica sobre La Gestión de la Seguridad de las Operaciones en Entornos Violentos (‘Good Practice Review on Operational Security Management in Violent Environments’), conocido también como GPR 8, fue publicado en 2000 en inglés y francés. Desde entonces el documento ha cobrado gran influencia en la gestión de la seguridad de las operaciones humanitarias, y tiene el mérito de haber incrementado un mayor entendimiento de la buena práctica en este campo en toda la comunidad de organizaciones involucradas en operaciones humanitarias.

The Landmine Monitor 2010 reported that 66 states and a further seven other areas were suspected or conﬁrmed to be mine-affected. In the previous year, 3,596 casualties were recorded. However, the real casualty rate is likely to be higher, due to incomplete or inaccurate reporting. These ﬁgures represent an improvement in the scale of the landmine problem – in comparison with the 2008 ﬁgures, three fewer states were affected, and the number of recorded casualties fell by approximately 28 per cent.
