Today a major international donor conference is taking place in Brussels to plan the rebuilding of Ebola hit countries. Having just recently returned from Sierra Leone and Liberia, I would like to share my reflection on how the impact of the crisis is affecting women and girls. Quite a crucial aspect, and a gender transformative approach should inform donor commitment in Brussels this Tuesday.
Dans sa stratégie « Nutrition dans les pays en développement » de 2010, la France s’engageait à mettre en place un « portefeuille d’actions agissant en synergie sur les causes immédiates, sous-jacentes et fondamentales» de la sous-nutrition. Ce document d’orientation stratégique (le « DOS Nutrition ») tirait ainsi les leçons de décennies de recherche internationale, en faisant de la multisectorialité la clé de voute de la lutte contre la sous-nutrition, mais sans pour autant en donner véritablement le mode d’emploi ni les outils nécessaires à sa mise en œuvre.

Humanitarian aid is largely guided by anecdotes rather than evidence. Currently, the humanitarian system shows significant weaknesses in data collection, analysis and response in all stages of a crisis or emergency. As a result, the present humanitarian system is much less evidence-driven than it should be and than it would like to be.
G20 countries attending a key development meeting in South Africa today (Wed) must call for the urgent release of promised funds to stop more people from going hungry as food prices skyrocket once again, says the UK Hunger Alliance.

Geneva, May 20, 2011. CARE International, a leading humanitarian organization, today launched its Annual Report for Financial Year 2010. The report provides a snapshot of CARE’s programs and the impact of CARE’s work. CARE International focuses on fighting poverty by empowering women and girls. “CARE is convinced that once we equip women and girls with the proper resources, they have the power to help families and entire communities to escape poverty,” says Dr. Robert Glasser, CARE International’s Secretary General.
Climate change directly affects food security and nutrition. It undermines current efforts to protect the lives and livelihoods and end the suffering of the over 1 billion food insecure people and will increase the risk of hunger and malnutrition by an unprecedented scale within the next decades. Undernutrition is already the single largest contributor to the global burden of disease, killing 3.5 million people every year, almost all of them children in developing countries.
