Situation Générale en octobre 2017 Prévision jusqu'à’mi-décembre 2017
New York, 06 November 2017
Thank you all for coming today. I visited Yemen from 24 to 28 October. It was my first visit there as Emergency Relief Coordinator. I also attended a valuable meeting organized by the King Salman Relief Center on Yemen in Riyadh on 29 October.
In October, the Logistics Cluster facilitated three airlifts from Djibouti to Sana’a, each composed of several rotations.
The ETC is establishing security and data telecommunications services for the humanitarian community operating in Yemen. WFP is leading ETC activities in Yemen with responsibility for coordination, implementation and overall operational support for common ICT services.
Provision of the services included on this map are dependent on the availability of funding.
Locations are proposed only and subject to final confirmation with humanitarian partners.
• 11.3 million children across Yemen now need humanitarian assistance, and 55 per cent of IDPs are children.
• OHCHR verified civilian casualties have reached 13,920, including 5,159 people killed and 8,761 injured since March 2017.
• Suspected cholera cases are likely to reach one million by the end of 2017.
• A record seven million people received food assistance in August, but WFP faces a funding shortfall of $390 million in coming months.
Children hardest hit by ongoing conflict
Saudi Arabia and its allied forces launched a new wave of airstrikes on targets in neighboring Yemen, where Riyadh has been leading a military alliance against Iran-backed Shi’ite Houthi militant forces since March 2015.
Alhurra reported the airstrikes targeted the National Security building and the Ministry of Interior and other positions Sunday in the capital, Sana’a.
This month’s update highlights children and armed conflict concerns and provides recommendations for the protection of children in the situations of Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The update additionally provides information regarding the status of the Security Council Working Group on Children and Armed Conflict conclusion negotiations on the Secretary-General’s report on the situation of children and armed conflict in Nigeria.
Bureaucratic obstructions, insecurity, and lack of humanitarian access continue to constrain response efforts
Health actors record more than 900,000 suspected cholera cases and 2,188 related deaths as of November 3
Nearly 80 percent of Yemeni children lack access to education due to the effects of prolonged conflict
DATA COLLECTION ON MIGRATION AND DISPLACEMENT IN THE HORN OF AFRICA AND IN THE ARAB PENINSULA
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has established a range of Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) data collection activities in areas of significant migratory transit and displacement in the Horn of Africa and in the Arab Peninsula.
Flow monitoring points (FMPs) are being established to collect data in order to provide a better understanding of intra and inter-regional migration patterns and trends.
