KEY DEVELOPMENTS

15 Feb 2019 description

In the last three decades, the Earth has experienced record hot temperatures, with 2017 the third warmest year in recorded history. Rising temperatures can create deadly conditions for vulnerable populations, especially the elderly, infants and young children, pregnant women, those with chronic health challenges or disabilities, and those who work outside. When combined with other environmental challenges like air and water pollution, heat waves can threaten food security, increase demand for water and energy, and strain public services.

15 Feb 2019 description

Humanitarian access is also highly constrained in NGCA, challenging the delivery of impartial assistance.
