Tripoli, 20 November 2018
The humanitarian community is saddened by the turn of events in Misrata, where 79 refugees and migrants who remained onboard a commercial vessel since 10 November were forced to disembark the boat. We regret the reports that some of the people onboard were injured during the forced disembarkation and transferred to the public hospital. Refugees and migrants on board included Ethiopian, Eritrean, South Sudanese, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Somali nationals.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has long been a valuable partner of the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX), supplying food prices and food security data since the platform was first launched in 2014. In the past, the process for uploading the data was manual and was kept in a single global file. Following a fruitful collaboration between WFP and HDX, the data is now updated automatically and disaggregated by country.

Thank you, Maureen.
I do feel honoured to be here at SAIS today. Thank you for inviting me.
I admire your commitment to developing the next generation of leaders in international affairs.
We live in a world where pretty much everyone can see pretty much everything almost everywhere, pretty much all the time. Everything and everyone is inter-connected.
1. Using the CERF Handbook
The Handbook is a reference tool to find quick answers on the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) as well as a guide to applying for and maximizing the impact of CERF funds.
The CERF Handbook describes CERF as a Humanitarian Financing tool and the activities involved in all parts of the CERF process, from coordinated prioritization to applying for CERF funds and reporting.
The importance of flexible funding
More than any other form of support, flexible funding is critical to OCHA’s ability to help humanitarian partners save and protect lives anywhere in the world, whenever needs arise.
In delivering its coordination mandate, OCHA relies primarily on almost 2,000 staff members who work with thousands of United Nations (UN), national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Governments and regional organization partners in some 60 countries.
Good afternoon everybody. I am really thrilled to be here.
Let me start by saying a very happy 50th birthday Concern Worldwide and congratulations.
Thank you, it is a pleasure to be here with you today to celebrate Concern Worldwide’s 50th anniversary.
And it does bear repeating, as Ciarán (Ciarán Cannon, Ireland’s Minister for the Diaspora and International Development) said, you started as a result of the famine in Biafra in 1968.
The Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) is a document that is used for planning and managing the humanitarian response in a crisis, through the development of a country strategy and cluster plans implementing that strategy. In addition, the HRP can be used as an advocacy and communications tool and as a resource mobilization tool.
HPC.TOOLS AND THE PROJECTS MODULE WHY ARE WE REPLACING “OPS”?
HPC.Tools is a suite of applications, referred to as modules, designed by OCHA to enable the humanitarian community to manage the structured information around the humanitarian program cycle (HPC): needs indicators, strategic and cluster plan frameworks, response indicators, activities and projects, 3W and financial data. They support the cycle at all stages: identification of needs; strategic, cluster-level and project planning; periodic monitoring; presence mapping and financial tracking.
