unhcr reports progress on health efforts for refugees despite record displacementthis is a summary of what was said by unhcr spokesperson andrej mahecic – to whom quoted text may be attributed – at today's press briefing at the palais des nations in geneva.unhcr, the un refugee agency, has this week released its annual public health overview (twine.unhcr.org/ar2017) of new refugee emergencies and ongoing operations. despite record forced displacement globally, the report finds that health services to refugees and other displaced populations are in most cases on track. however, communicable diseases, anaemia, and stunting remain areas of concern.the report notes that strengthened weekly surveillance of key health indicators among refugee populations during emergencies and systematic monitoring are contributing to prompt, effective interventions. the report is a snapshot of what has been achieved and highlights the trends based on key indicators in unhcr’s public health, reproductive health and hiv, nutrition, food security, and water, sanitation and hygiene programmes in 37 key operations. in 21 of these operations, unhcr and its partners collect and analyse public health data using a standardized health information system to better protect and serve refugees.the report includes, for example, the findings on the mortality rates among refugee children under the age of five – which is always an important health impact indicator in emergencies. despite major refugee emer...

can improved ethiopia-eritrea relations stabilise the region? - eritrea
by omar s mahmood and meressa k dessuthe horn of africa could see an end to the ongoing cycles of direct and proxy conflicts.after 20 years of hostility, ethiopia and eritrea have resumed diplomatic relations. on 8 july ethiopia’s prime minister, abiy ahmed, made a landmark visit to eritrea’s capital asmara, welcomed by cheering supporters. a week later, eritrea’s president isaias afwerki visited ethiopia, where he too was greeted by big crowds.but the restart of good relations isn’t important just for these two countries – the entire horn of africa region will benefit. following eritrea’s separation from ethiopia in 1991, a border dispute contributed to two years of armed conflict starting in 1998, in which about 100 000 people died.the failure to implement a 2002 ruling over the disputed border led to a situation of ‘no war, no peace’ between the two countries. despite there being no actual war going on, the armies of both countries have been on standby, and the tension and potential for war has been there.after two decades, the leaders have now agreed to end this situation and forge closer political, economic and social connections. the easing of tensions is already evident – so far telecom services between the two have resumed; ethiopian airlines is starting regular flights to asmara; and eritrea has reopened its embassy in addis ababa.the ethiopia-eritrea conflict has been one of the major reasons for instability in the horn of africa, and so th...

cost of counter-terrorism for civilians in lake chad countries - nigeria
restrictions aimed at stopping extremism shouldn’t deny the people of the lake chad basin their livelihoods.by omar s mahmoodthe ongoing terror threat in nigeria, chad, niger and cameroon has led the governments of the lake chad region to enact numerous security restrictions in affected areas. while these restrictions are meant to improve security for all, some affect civilians negatively – particularly regarding livelihoods.given the need for regional governments to preserve public support, such restrictions should be balanced in terms of their impact on boko haram militants and the resulting unintended consequences for local civilians.in 2013, the nigerian government enacted a state of emergency in the north-eastern states of borno, yobe and adamawa. niger placed a similar measure in its diffa region in february 2015 after the first boko haram attacks there, and chad followed suit in the lac region in november 2015. cameroon has also issued a number of security-related directives in its far north region.such measures range from constraints on the use of two-wheeled motorcycles (as militants have used them for assassinations) to bans on the trade of certain commodities like fish or pepper (as militants have profited from this).the lake chad governments must ensure both security and the freedom for civilians to make a livingother examples include the prohibition of growing certain tall crops that militants can use as cover, and restrictions on the movement of people and g...

unhcr welcomes end to latest mediterranean standoff, but says predictable approach to rescue still urgently needed - world
unhcr, the un refugee agency, welcomes the actions of the past days by several european countries to collectively end a standoff on the mediterranean involving some 450 refugees and migrants who had been stranded at sea amid a battle over disembarkation.since saturday the governments of france, germany, italy, malta, spain and portugal have agreed to land and together share processing of the 450 people, including any asylum claims that might be lodged.“we hope that these arrangements will now be quickly and effectively implemented,” said un high commissioner for refugees filippo grandi. “as well as ending an ordeal for these individuals, this sets a positive example of how, by working together, countries can uphold sea rescue and manage borders while simultaneously meeting international asylum obligations.”“however, solutions are needed that go beyond piecemeal or “ship-by-ship” arrangements,” grandi added. “at the eu summit in late june, european governments committed to a more sustained collaborative, predictable and well-managed approach to dealing with all people rescued at sea. until this is in place, arrangements for mediterranean arrivals will continue to be short-term and unsustainable, the interests of a common approach by europe will be undermined, and lives will be at risk with each new attempted boat journey.”as of today, wider mediterranean arrangements for managing rescue, disembarkation and the follow up processing are far from adequate. rec...

“the situation in northeast nigeria is deteriorating after years of conflict” - nigeria
luis eguiluz is the head of mission for médecins sans frontières (msf) in nigeria. he explains the challenges that hundreds of thousands of displaced people are facing, while living in isolated enclaves controlled by the military in the northeast of the country.it may not have hit headlines in the same way as a few years ago, but the humanitarian situation in northeast nigeria, where about 1.7 million people have been displaced, is deteriorating. the long-lasting conflict between non-state armed groups and the military continues to displace more and more people, who are arriving at a series of garrison towns with very limited capacity to absorb new arrivals. security perimeters in these enclaves remain very restricted, and while assistance continues to be provided by aid organisations, it has been of low standard. this has an even greater impact when you have more people in need.all sectors of aid delivery have been affected: food distribution, water availability and shelter capacity. even health provision is fragile in some locations. some areas of the enclaves have problems with food supplies, despite a wide change from general to targeted distributions. organisations who were key in the delivery of water have now quit and, overall, there is a lack of senior humanitarian workers in the more remote locations.donor fatigue, however, does not seem to be the problem. funding keeps coming in and nearly 100 national and international ngos are working in maiduguri, the capital o...

mali on the brink - insights from local peacebuilders on the causes of violent conflict and the prospects for peace (july 2018) - mali
executive summarymali is facing an escalating violent conflict that has spread from the peripheral sahel regions in the far northwest to the centre of the country. in 2018, the country is faced with a situation where violence is more intense and widespread than during the widely publicised 2012–2013 crisis.mali is not experiencing a civil war in the conventional sense but a complex, multidimensional security crisis of interlinked micro-conflicts.communities are fragmenting into competing armed factions and mass atrocities are becoming commonplace. in 2013, international military intervention took place, followed by a democratic transition. yet, five years on, the presidential election due on 29 july, poses a short-term risk to political stability, as well as a long-term opportunity to rebuild the malian state and society.peace direct began working in mali in late 2017, in collaboration with the national office of the west africa network for peacebuilding (wanep).with over 500 member organisations across west africa, wanep is well placed to increase coordination between local civil society and women led organisations in the region. peace direct will be supporting wanep in its aims to increase the sense of security and social cohesion among communities, through enhanced capacity and coordination of local civil society organisations.this report presents the findings of peace direct’s first peace exchange workshop in bamako, a practitioner led conflict analysis workshop, (sub...

“without education they lose their future”: denial of education to child asylum seekers on the greek islands - greece
greece: asylum-seeking children deprived of schoolfew classes in government camps on the aegean islands(athens) – greece is denying thousands of asylum-seeking children their right to an education because of an european union-backed migration policy that traps them on the aegean islands, human rights watch said today.the 51-page report, “‘without education they lose their future’: denial of education to child asylum seekers on the greek islands,” found that fewer than 15 percent of more than 3,000 school-age asylum-seeking children on the islands were enrolled in public school at the end of the 2017-2018 school year, and that in government-run camps on the islands, only about 100 children, all preschoolers, had access to formal education. the asylum-seeking children on the islands are denied the educational opportunities they would have on the mainland. most of those who were able to go to school had been allowed to leave the government-run camps for housing run by local authorities and volunteers.“greece should drop its policy of confining child asylum seekers and their families to the islands, since for two years the government has proven incapable of getting these children into school there,” said bill van esveld, senior children’s rights researcher at human rights watch. “stranding children on islands where they can’t go to school harms them and violates greece’s own laws.”human rights watch interviewed 107 school-age asylum-seeking and migrant ...

humanitarian coordinator warns of worsened crisis in gaza following new import and export restrictions - occupied palestinian territory
gaza city, 17 july 2018today, the humanitarian coordinator for the occupied palestinian territory, mr. jamie mcgoldrick, visited the gaza strip and called for urgent measures to prevent further deterioration in the humanitarian situation there, following intensified movement restrictions.“as events over the weekend demonstrate, the situation in gaza is extremely precarious,” said mr. mcgoldrick. “i am deeply concerned about the imposition of further restrictions at kerem shalom, which is the lifeline for gaza’s population. should they continue, these additional restrictions risk triggering a dramatic deterioration in an already fragile situation and desperate humanitarian conditions, particularly for the health sector.”new restrictions imposed by the israeli authorities on 9 july, and further increased yesterday 16 july, prohibit the entry of goods except medical and food supplies; prohibit the exit of all goods; and restrict the fishing area along the gaza coast to three nautical miles. according to the israeli authorities, the measures were adopted in response to the launching of incendiary kites and balloons from gaza towards israel, which have resulted in over 750 fires that have burned more than 7, 000 acres of land in israel.of particular concern is the impact that shortfalls in fuel will have on the provision of critical health, water and sanitation services in gaza. with electricity cuts up to 20 hours per day, over 220 health and wash facilities in the gaza...

2018 - corporate alert system - linking early warning to early action in the sahel - mauritania
emergency preparedness saves lives, reduces the impact of crises on vulnerable people's livelihoods and is much more cost-effective than repeated humanitarian action. this story shows how wfp's early warning analysis led to early action in the sahel.food crises often develop over a long period of time and are typically caused by conflict, drought or other natural hazards, as well as high food prices and low incomes, which prevent people from being able to produce or purchase sufficient food. wfp’s early warning systems routinely monitor and forecast risk factors to provide governments and humanitarian actors with the opportunity to take early action to prevent or mitigate a critical situation from escalating into an emergency.the implementation of emergency preparedness activities helps to save lives and reduces the impact of crises on poor people’s livelihoods. evidence demonstrates that investment in early response, community resilience and preparedness is significantly more cost-effective than repeated humanitarian action. for example, a 2018 usaid study on ethiopia, kenya and somalia indicates that early response to drought, combined with safety net transfers and resilience-building activities, could over a 15-year period save us$4.3 billion, or an average of us$287 million per year.in the sahel, interdependent drivers such as extreme poverty, climate change, armed conflict and subsequent displacement and migration, caused chronic and acute vulnerabilities to reach ...
