Surviving abuse in Libya, after flight from Cote d'Ivoire FGM
Description: Over 200 million women and girls across the world have been subjected to female genital mutilation, while 20,000 seek asylum from FGM-practicing countries in the EU every year. Aisha*, not her real name, was seven years old when she underwent the procedure in her native Ivory Coast. Her eldest daughter was four when it happened to her. Last year Aisha fled with her youngest daughter to save her from being excised. But in Libya, she was caught in a nine-month-long nightmare, where she experienced repeated abuse and witnessed the killings of people detained with her. UNHCR calls for unrestricted humanitarian access in Libya to prevent risks of sexual and gender-based violence and to offer psycho-social support to survivors.

Four Famines: Fragility, Resilience, and the Role of International Development
Description: More than 20 million people in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, and Nigeria are facing famine conditions and possible starvation. It has been called the largest humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. Of the $4.9 billion the United Nations desperately needs to respond to these crises, only $2.5 billion has been received. Meanwhile, the humanitarian disaster is deepening, largely due to escalating conflict in each of the four countries. Humanitarian assistance and international development have different objectives and time horizons, but must work together to respond to the crisis at hand while also preventing the next one from occurring. What role does international development play in building long-term resilience? What are the linkages between conflict, fragility, and severe food insecurity? How can U.S. leadership and international development programming break the cycle of instability and famine?

Video games that protect civilians
Description: Like many other soldiers around the world, these Ukrainian army officers are learning the laws of war by planning simulated operations on a virtual battlefield. The ICRC uses this method in a number of countries. As Michael Pymble, an ICRC armed forces delegate, explains: "When we can show them what the terrain looks like in 3D – where things are, where the military objectives are in relation to civilian objects, where people are – and they’re able to see that in 3D, it just makes it far more accessible for them, and the results are much better in the planning exercises that we give them.” AV443C_long-version

Silent starvation in Chad's Lake Region
Description: The conflict between Boko Haram and the military operations to defeat it that began in Nigeria have spread to Niger, Chad and Cameroon, causing one of the worst humanitarian crises in Africa. In Chad, 350,000 people are in danger of starvation due to failing food supplies, losing their animals, their lands and crops, and being unable to carry out activities like fishing. The massive movements of people and difficulties in growing crops or distributing aid have left more than 8 million people on the brink of starvation. Oxfam is there, YOU can help: https://www.oxfam.org/en/emergencies/west-africa-crisis We provide people with emergency food support and cash and vouchers so they can buy food from local markets, clean water and better sanitation, including constructing showers and toilets. We are distributing food and cooking equipment, as well as providing seeds and tools to help traders and farmers.
