Bangladesh: 1.5 million people are affected by flooding, which has displaced around 320,000 people in the areas of Cox's Bazar, Chittagong, and Bandarban. Shelter, WASH and food security are key priorities. 15 out 24 rivers are over danger levels as heavy rainfall continues.

Libya: An estimated 2,244 people have died this year as a result of conflict, and nearly one-third of the country’s population is affected. Humanitarian access remains severely restricted.

Sierra Leone: Up to 12,000 people have been affected by floods in Freetown. More than 8,000 displaced to two stadiums have significant health, WASH and protection needs. Poor road access has meant that 4,290 people affected by flooding in Bo and Pujehun districts have received very little assistance. Sierra Leone continues to report cases of Ebola near the capital and resistance to the Ebola response persists.
