● Access impediments restrict the delivery of essential humanitarian assistance in a number of villages along the contact line, increasing the needs of local population in terms of access to basic life-saving assistance.
● Limited locally available resources to sustain/expand social services amid increased influx of internally displaced persons (IDPs) to many communities create tensions between host population and IDPs.
● Reports emerge of IDPs being reluctant to return to non-government controlled areas due to fear of persecution for political reasons leading to ill-treatment, damage of documents, and intimidation of families or deprivation of property.
● Funding for humanitarian operations remains low: only 21 percent of US$316 required for Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) 2015 is funded or pledged.
