The ICRC develops its first massive open online course (MOOC) on sustainability in humanitarian action
(IITD) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) launched the ‘Humanitarian Policy and Technology Platform’ in New Delhi.
The Platform aims to generate and facilitate research and discussions on the new technologies for humanitarian action and the compliance of new technologies of warfare with International Humanitarian Law (IHL). It addresses two key areas of the interface between technology and humanity: application of innovative technologies to improve the quality of humanitarian action; and the implication of new technologies of warfare for IHL.
More than 7,000 families deported from neighbouring Angola and now back in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have received financial assistance in the border town of Kamako, in Kasai Province. This support will enable them to pay for their travel to be reunited with their loved ones or to improve their living conditions.
Mali : maintenir la proximité avec les populations affectées
Jean-Nicolas Marti, chef de délégation du CICR au Mali, fait le bilan de l'année écoulée et annonce les perspectives pour l'année 2019.
La situation humanitaire reste critique, particulièrement dans les régions du Nord du pays et elle devient de plus en plus préoccupante dans le Centre, notamment dans un arc qui part de la frontière mauritanienne qui suit la boucle du fleuve Niger et se prolonge le long des frontières du Burkina Faso et du Niger.
La région du lac Tchad (nord-est du Nigéria, Extrême-Nord du Cameroun, région de Diffa au Niger, et région du Lac au Tchad) traverse une crise humanitaire majeure. Onze millions de personnes seraient touchées par les conséquences désastreuses d’un conflit qui perdure (depuis près de dix ans), une pauvreté chronique, une absence de services de base, et l’insécurité alimentaire.
