OVERVIEW OF THE SITUATION
Amidst political tensions, an estimated 10.3 million people across DPRK continue to suffer from food insecurity and undernutrition, as well as a lack of access to basic services. Recurrent natural hazards – particularly extended droughts punctuated by near-annual floods – exacerbate and create new humanitarian needs. As a result, people have crucial and unmet food, nutrition, health, water, sanitation and hygiene needs

UN Migration Agency Appeals for USD 88.5 million for Response to Ethiopian Crisis
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY With the Syria crisis entering its seventh year in 2017, Jordan is hosting some 1.266 million Syrians,1 of which 655,833 are registered as refugees.2 Providing for their needs, without jeopardizing Jordanian people, institutions and systems’ development gains and opportunities, has impacted heavily on Jordan’s finances, increasing government expenditures on subsidies, public services and security, while further compounding the negative economic consequences of regional instability.
ENSO forecast from global centers indicate a 50% chance of El Niño conditions developing during the second half of 2017. There are chances for the current persisting neutral condition to continue or weak to moderate El Niño like conditions might be possible. Historical data suggests that El Niño events which has onset from July to October are relatively weaker though other possibilities are not entirely ruled out at this stage.
Honiara, the capital city of the Solomon Islands, faces a myriad of resilience challenges. Not only is the city already exposed to multiple natural hazards, a changing climate will amplify many of the adverse impacts into the future. At the same time, rapid urbanization - most obviously expressed through the growth of informal settlements in urban and peri-urban areas - is heightening community exposure and sensitivity to a range of climate and non-climate shocks and stresses.
El Niño conditions persisting during the 2015/16 planting season have caused the worst drought in 35 years in Southern Africa, resulting in a second consecutive failed harvest. This has created severe food shortages and compounded existing vulnerabilities. Since July 2016, Namibia and Botswana have declared national drought emergencies, in addition to the declarations made earlier by Lesotho, Malawi, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. Madagascar issued a letter of solidarity with the SADC Appeal, and Mozambique has maintained a red alert in affected areas.
- While generous donor support has assisted humanitarian responders to reach millions of drought-affected people, significant funding shortages continue to impede the response. Only half of the funds for emergency food and agriculture assistance has been raised, while many other sectoral responses remain largely unfunded, including education (12 per cent funded); protection (18 per cent); water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) (18 per cent); and early recovery (26 per cent).
The 2015-16 El Niño event has resulted in the worst drought in much of southern Africa in 35 years. is has had a catastrophic e ect on the food security of millions of people across the region. Beyond a food security crisis, the region has wider humanitarian needs that result from water scarcity, including impacts on access to water and sanitation, education, health services and livelihoods.
This Revised Emergency Appeal seeks CHF 979,346 (increased from CHF 833,945) to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Mongolian Red Cross Society (MRCS) to deliver assistance and support to 27,000 people (5,400 households) for 12 months, with a focus on livelihoods including nutrition and food security, and community preparedness and risk reduction. The revised plan reflects an increased number of beneficiaries, an increase in activities, and a refocused geographic scope (from 20 to 17 provinces).
2016 is set to be an important year for a programming shift in the Kenya refugee operation. Reorientation from traditional care and maintenance in the camps, towards truly solutions-oriented programming, is starting to take root in response to the new circumstances and unprecedented global challenges.
Le Grand Sud de Madagascar est habité de 1,8 millions d’habitants, c’est une zone aride qui ne reçoit qu’une moyenne annuelle de 500 mm de pluies. Le taux de pauvreté y atteint jusqu’à 90%, c’est le plus élevé du pays ; le taux de malnutrition chronique chez les enfants moins de 5 ans se situe entre 32% à 40%, et le taux moyen d’insécurité alimentaire chronique est également parmi les plus élevés du pays. En février 2016, une situation d’urgence humanitaire s’est de nouveau installée dans le Grand Sud du pays.
The current global El Niño event is considered one of the strongest on record. In Sudan, El Niño has significantly impacted the 2015 rainy season with delayed rains, below-average rainfall and intermittent dry spells. This has caused reduced cultivation areas, delayed planting, poor pastures and limited water availability for both people and their livestock. These impacts are threatening essential agricultural and livestock production across Sudan.
El 29 de abril, fuertes lluvias en el municipio de Sayaxché provocaron el desborde de las lagunas de oxidación de una de las empresas productoras de aceite de palma africana y la muerte masiva de peces.
El Ministerio de Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (MARN) y el Ministerio de Salud Pública y Asistencia Social (MSPAS) tomaron muestras de agua; estas fueron enviadas al Laboratorio Nacional de Salud (LNS).
With the conflict in Syria entering its fifth year in 2015, Jordan is hosting 1.4 million Syrians, of whom 646,700 are refugees. Eighty-five per cent of refugees live outside camps in some of the poorest areas of the country, and a significant proportion are classified as extremely vulnerable. Approximately 23.5 per cent of all Syrian refugees are women, and almost 53 per cent are children, 18 per cent of whom are under five years of age.
1. Executive Summary
The Kenya refugee operation is often cited as an example of a protracted refugee situation with traditional refugee camps in place for the past 20 or so years. In the last four years, however, the operation has been anything but static in responding to two major influxes from neighbouring countries while undergoing a transition in terms of partnerships and innovations in assistance delivery.
This Humanitarian Response Plan has been revised in response to the intensification of the conflict and subsequent deterioration of the humanitarian situation. The Humanitarian Country Team conducted a 'light revision‘' of the plan including a prioritization of life-saving activities and revision of financial requirements. While the substance of the plan remains largely the same, and the scenarios remain valid, the number of people targeted has increased to 3.2 million.
Lebanon is not a State Party to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and has not signed its 1967 Protocol. Lebanon implements some provisions of the Convention on a voluntary basis and considers that granting the refugee status to individuals lies within its margin of discretion.
The Government of Lebanon stresses on all occasions its longstanding position reaffirming that Lebanon is neither a country of asylum, nor a final destination for refugees, let alone a country of resettlement.
