In Caceres, Colombia, 1,484 people have been displaced as a result of violence between armed groups. The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) urgently calls for the protection of the indigenous and rural populations who have been seriously affected by the recent violence.
The United Nations Security Council should break its eight-month silence on Yemen by demanding a complete lifting of the blockade and cessation of hostilities, the Norwegian Refugee Council said.
The United Kingdom has proposed a presidential statement on the situation in Yemen which the Security Council will discuss this week. While Security Council resolutions are binding on all member-states, presidential statements are not.
In humanitarian crises like South Sudan’s protracted conflict, people with physical disabilities struggle to escape when their villages are attacked.
The civil war in South Sudan that broke out in 2013 has displaced 1.6 million people within the young state since 2015, and forced over 768,000 people to seek refuge in neighbouring countries. The conflict has brought the country to its knees, crippling the economy and creating tribal rivalry and social disorder.
Alarm bells ring as violence by hundreds of armed groups worsens in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Despite 13 million people now needing emergency assistance, the aid response falls far from meeting even minimum lifesaving needs in worst affected areas.
"World leaders and public attention have failed to grasp that Congo's wars have returned on an enormous scale. Armed men attack and abuse defenceless women and children every day, displacing millions," said Egeland.
Greece has been the second refugee population receiving country in the EU since September 2015.
More than 51.000 people are stranded around Greece (according to data published by the Greek Government ). The majority have applied for asylum while others wait for relocation or family reunification applications to be decided so that they can move on to other member states.
