April 19, Cox’s Bazar – The first heavy rains of 2018 have hit Cox’s Bazar ahead of the much dreaded monsoon season, drenching refugee camps that are now home to nearly 800,000 Rohingya.
There was some rain early on Wednesday followed by a heavy downpour this morning. The rain comes during what’s known as the pre-monsoon season—when severe storms and heavy rains are common—before Bangladesh’s devastating monsoon season starts in earnest in late May or early June.
Nutrition Boost: Time to rethink our approach to financing Sustainable Development Goal 2
I’m writing this from Washington DC, the site of the annual World Bank Spring Meetings. As hundreds of ministers descend on the city to discuss the pressing finance and development issues of the day, the Springs are a great chance to reflect on the world’s efforts to fund the fight against global malnutrition.

Earlier this week I woke up to reports of the latest atrocity to hit families in Douma – a suspected chemical attack. Horrific, yet not unfamiliar images emerged of whole families lifeless in each other’s arms, and children pale and choking in dark basements.
The attack came whilst many people were waiting to be evacuated, hoping in vain to be taken to safety. Others suffocated whilst they were sheltering underground, trying to escape the worst of the bombing – this ultimately made them more vulnerable to the attack.
Message from the CEO
Late 2017 and early 2018 saw the international development sector responding to troubling reports of misconduct – incidents which have undoubtedly affected and harmed innocent victims who have turned to organisations such as ours for help, and whose trust was subsequently shattered. We know that the children we work with in areas affected by conflict, poverty and disaster are especially vulnerable to abuse.
As thousands of Congolese refugees arrive in Uganda each week, a new assessment by Save the Children has found that 10% of newly arrived children said they were raped during their journey to Uganda.

América Latina y El Caribe han registrado importantes avances en materia de Derechos del Niño. A 25 años de la aprobación de la Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño, la mayoría de países la han ratificado y han hecho cambios significativos en leyes y políticas públicas con el fin de promover la protección de la niñez.
This year torrential rains, flooding, and landslides in Cox's Bazar could create a disaster within a disaster. Within 24 hours of a deluge, roads in the Rohingya camps can turn to mud, while hills are highly susceptible to landslides. This weather is guaranteed to wreak havoc, destroying makeshift shelters, flooding roads and low-lying settlements, and smashing bridges. The most likely scenario of a normal to heavy monsoon season, along with a number of cyclonic/high winds, may result in the following:
During the monsoon season, all students should be told, and regularly reminded of, the key messages in this document. Teachers should reinforce these messages regularly through role play, games and poems. All TLCs should have an Evacuation Plan in place, and practice it regularly with the students, likely in the form of a School Safety Drill.
Des millions de personnes touchées par la crise humanitaire en République Démocratique du Congo (RDC) sont exposées à une aggravation de la faim et à une augmentation des maladies et des décès en raison d’un manque crucial de financement de la réponse humanitaire, alerte une coalition réunissant 20 ONG internationales à l’occasion de la conférence des bailleurs se réunissant ce jour à Genève.

The Horn of Africa has been grappling with the effects of consecutive failed rains across Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia that led to 12 million people in need of humanitarian assistance at the start of 2017.
Children bore the brunt of the crisis as their families struggled to survive in a worsening situation that resulted in malnutrition, increased susceptibility to diseases, limited access to school and exposure to protection concerns as families would migrate in search of food and water.
