    24 mai 2017 - Actualité

    Réforme du travail

    Rencontres avec les représentants syndicaux et patronaux pour échanger sur la méthode et les principaux axes de la réforme.
     
    Le Premier ministre, Édouard Philippe, et la ministre du Travail, Muriel Pénicaud, rencontrent les huit organisations syndicales et patronales représentatives pour échanger sur  la méthode et les principaux axes de la réforme du travail.

    La réforme du travail vise à donner davantage de place à la négociation au sein de l’entreprise, à libérer les énergies, mais aussi à adapter le marché du travail au service de l’emploi et du dialogue social.

    Le Gouvernement souhaite qu’une place importante soit accordée à la concertation. Le Parlement se prononcera sur le projet de loi d’habilitation. Les partenaires sociaux seront associés à chacune des étapes de l’élaboration de cette réforme.

    L’agenda des rencontres
     
    Mercredi 24 mai 2017
    15h00                  Pierre Gattaz, président du MEDEF
    16h00                  Jean-Claude Mailly, secrétaire général de FO 
    18h30                  François Hommeril, président de la CFE-CGC
     
    Lundi 29 mai 2017
    15h00                  Philippe Martinez, secrétaire général de la CGT
    16h00                  Laurent Berger, secrétaire général de la CFDT 
    17h00                  Alain Griset, président de l’U2P
    18h00                  François Asselin, président de la CPME
    19h00                  Philippe Louis, président de la CFTC 

    D’autres rendez-vous entre le Gouvernement et les partenaires sociaux se tiendront dans les prochaines semaines jusqu’à l’élaboration du projet de loi d’habilitation et la publication des ordonnances.
     
    Pourquoi avoir recours aux ordonnances ?
    Le projet de loi d’habilitation permettra au Gouvernement, pour la mise en œuvre rapide du programme du Président de la République, de demander au Parlement l'autorisation de prendre, par ordonnance, des mesures qui relèvent normalement du domaine de la loi.
    Cette voie de procédure permettra d’accélérer l'entrée en vigueur des mesures et d’aboutir ainsi à des résultats concrets dans des délais plus rapides.

    Déclaration d'Édouard Philippe suite à l'attaque de Manchester

    Communiqué du Premier ministre Edouard Philippe
     
    Le terrorisme le plus lâche a encore frappé, en s'en prenant, comme à Paris il y a plus d'un an, à un lieu de spectacle ; en visant plus spécifiquement, et sciemment, de très jeunes gens et jeunes filles rassemblés pour un moment de fête et de joie.
    Devant ce crime abominable, je veux dire aux citoyens de Manchester et au peuple britannique ma tristesse, la solidarité du peuple français et son amitié indéfectible.
    J'appelle mes compatriotes à la plus totale vigilance face à une menace qui est plus que jamais présente.

  • UNICEF urges G7 leaders to adopt six-point action plan to keep refugee children safe
    Source: UN News Service
    Country: Italy, World

    At least 200 children have died while crossing the Central Mediterranean from North Africa to Italy so far this year, a rate of more than one child per day, according to UNICEF.

    25 May 2017 – Ahead of the Group of Seven summit in Italy, the United Nations children’s agency has urged the leaders of G7 industrialized countries to adopt its six-point action plan for the protection of refugee and migrant children.

    At least 36,000 of the refugees and migrants rescued since January have been taken to Sicily, the site of this year’s summit, and the Italian G7 presidency has made migration a priority for this year’s talks.

    “Sicily stands as a symbol of hope for uprooted children seeking a better life, but it is also the endpoint of an extremely dangerous journey that has claimed the lives of many children along the way,” said Justin Forsyth, Deputy Executive Director of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

    UNICEF’s call comes at a time when the dangerous Central Mediterranean migration journey from North Africa to Italy draws renewed attention.

    At least 200 children have died while crossing the Central Mediterranean from North Africa to Italy so far this year, a rate of more than one child per day, according to the latest estimates from UNICEF.

    Between 1 January and 23 May, more than 45,000 refugees and migrants arrived to Italy by sea, up 44 per cent over the same period last year. This includes some 5,500 unaccompanied and separated children, an increase of 22 per cent from 2016, who account for approximately 92 per cent of all children arriving to Italy via the Central Mediterranean route.

    A record high 26,000 unaccompanied and separated children arrived to Italy last year, but if current trends hold, that record will be smashed in 2017.

    “That is not a record to be proud of, but a reminder of our collective failure to ensure the safety and wellbeing of refugee and migrant children,” Mr. Forsyth said.

    Earlier today, on the eve of the G7 summit, children, volunteers, the Italian coastguard, Italian and UNICEF officials took part in a symbolic rescue of paper boats to commemorate the thousands of children who have risked their lives crossing the Central Mediterranean and send a message to the G7 to take action to safeguard children on the move.

    The action plan’s six points are:

    • Protect child refugees and migrants, particularly unaccompanied children, from exploitation and violence;

    • End the detention of children seeking refugee status or migrating, by introducing a range of practical alternatives;

    • Keep families together as the best way to protect children and give children legal status; Keep all refugee and migrant children learning and give them access to health and other quality services;

    • Press for action on the underlying causes of large scale movements of refugees and migrants;

    • Promote measures to combat xenophobia, discrimination and marginalization in countries of transit and destination.

    In addition, UNICEF has also launched the “#AChildIsAChild” campaign, which has so far been supported on social media by more than 2 million people.

  • Central African Republic could reach 500,000 displaced by end of May if violence continues
    Source: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Government of the Central African Republic
    Country: Central African Republic

    The number of displaced persons has been on an upward trend since January 2017. The outbreaks of tension of the past two weeks have caused the displacement of about 100,000 people.

    Bangui, 25 th May 2017 – Violence has struck again the city of Bria, in the Central African Republic. From 15 to 18 May, due to clashes of unprecedented violence between rival armed groups, the city was emptied of its population. Out of the 47,500 inhabitants in Bria, 41,409 people have been forcibly displaced. Within few days, at the quest of security, the population flooded in an uninterrupted stream towards seven main spontaneous IDP sites. Among them, the site created in the vicinity of the MINUSCA base is the largest and to date shelters a total of 23,969 people. The newly displaced add up to 3,000 people who were already on the site since the upsurge of violence of 21 November 2016. Since December 2013, the Central African Republic had not experienced such a massive displacement of population.

    Faced with this worrying situation, the Minister of Social Affairs and National Reconciliation, Virginie Baikoua, and the Humanitarian Coordinator in the Central African Republic, Najat Rochdi, expressed their concern at “this new outbreak of violence where civilian people are paying the highest cost”.
    With the emergence of an ethnic dimension to the conflict, hundreds of houses were burned, property looted and ransacked.

    Faced with the plight of those who have left everything behind and now are lacking everything, the humanitarian community responded to their lifesaving needs in the first few days following the clashes. However, due to the large number of displaced people, the stocks have quickly diminished.

    On the sites, during the rainy season, the most urgent need is the availability of shelters. Food is also an emergency. Shelters and food rations have been convoyed from Bangui and Bambari to Bria, but insecurity and the poor conditions of roads have delayed their arrival. The humanitarian community is also working to meet the needs in terms of supply of drinking water and sanitation. Indeed, promiscuity and poor hygiene are factors favoring the spread of diseases. It is the case of the Hospital where the displaced are in contact with contagious diseases on a daily basis. Not all districts of Bria were ransacked, but the prevailing insecurity, the fear of violence and reprisals forces the displaced to remain in the hostile environment of the sites.

    Aware of the seriousness of the situation in Bria, Virginie Baikoua and Najat Rochdi are already advocating for enhanced security in the neighborhoods that have not been looted in order to encourage the return of the displaced and to decongest the sites. This advocacy includes increased protection for communities at risk specifically targeted by the violence.

    Given the magnitude of the crisis and its widespread humanitarian consequences in Bria, the Minister of Social Affairs and the Humanitarian Coordinator alerted on the risks of a spread of violence. “The resurgence of the last outbreaks of tension in the past two weeks has caused the displacement of about 100,000 people, 200 wounded and 300 dead. In addition, burned-down houses, plundered food supplies and goods are all new needs that the humanitarian community will have to meet while financial resources are stagnating,” they recalled.

    In addition to the violence in the past two weeks, since January 2017, the number of displaced persons has been on an upward trend, rising from 402,240 to 440,000 between March and April. If the violence continues, the Central African Republic could reach the 500,000 displaced by the end of May. Such a massive population displacement had not been observed since December 2013 at the height of the crisis.

    This emergency comes at a time when the humanitarian community is responding to other crises such as Bangassou or Alindao, where 14,814 and 14,293 displaced people are more dependent than ever on humanitarian assistance. Virginie Baikoua and Najat Rochdi pointed out that “a multiplication of hot spots and needs could lead to a large-scale crisis, the consequences of which could be more serious than in 2013 as the humanitarian response in the CAR is still largely underfunded”. Halfway through the year, funding for the 399.5 million dollars Humanitarian Response Plan is only at 64.8 million.

  • DRC Ebola outbreak threatens CAR after violence forces thousands across border
    Source: Thomson Reuters Foundation
    Country: Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo

    Attacks by Christian militias in CAR's border town of Bangassou have driven about 2,750 people into Bas-Uele, raising the risk that the Ebola outbreak could spread across the border, a WHO representative said.

    By Kieran Guilbert

    DAKAR, May 25 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - An Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo could spread to the neighbouring Central African Republic, where militia violence has forced thousands of people to flee across the border, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.

    Two cases of the virus have been confirmed by the WHO in Congo's remote northeastern Bas-Uele province since early May. Four people have died so far among the 43 suspected and confirmed cases.

    The affected area's isolation - it is about 1,400 kilometres (870 miles) from the capital Kinshasa - has helped contain the spread of the highly contagious hemorrhagic fever, experts say.

    Yet recent attacks by Christian militias in Central African Republic's border town of Bangassou have driven about 2,750 people into Bas-Uele, raising the risk that the Ebola outbreak could spread across the border, a WHO representative said.

    "There is a big concern about Ebola spreading to Central African Republic after this displacement," said Michel Yao, the WHO's representative in the Central African Republic.

    "We are worried as the refugees are close to the epicentre of the outbreak," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding they could become infected and carry the virus back home.

    While this latest Ebola outbreak is Congo's eighth - the most of any country - the Central African Republic lacks experience in dealing with such an epidemic, and its health system is weak after four years of conflict, Yao said.

    More than two thirds of its health facilities have been damaged or destroyed by the violence since 2013, when mainly Muslim Seleka rebels seized power, triggering reprisals by Christian "anti-balaka" militias, according to aid agencies.

    The Central African Republic set up an Ebola treatment centre and rapid response team following the West Africa epidemic, which killed more than 11,300 people between 2014 and 2016, mostly in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, the WHO said.

    "But there is very limited capacity outside of Bangui (the capital) and it is difficult to travel around the country due to the insecurity," Yao said. "We are concerned about how easily Ebola may spread if it arrives in the Central African Republic."

    Health authorities in Congo are monitoring about 365 people who came into contact with sufferers and have dispatched mobile laboratories to the area to speed up testing of people who display symptoms, the WHO said in its latest situation report.

    Asked about the potential for using an experimental vaccine, the WHO last week said the logistics were "complex" but that it was working with Congo's government and regulatory authorities.

  • Number of Somalis needing help has risen to 6.7 million
    Source: World Food Programme
    Country: Somalia

    The food security and nutrition situation in Somalia continues to deteriorate, despite the onset of the Gu rains, and an elevated risk of famine in 2017 persists.

    Highlights

    • Despite the onset of the Gu rains, the food security and nutrition situation in Somalia continues to deteriorate and an elevated risk of famine in 2017 persists.

    • In April, WFP reached 2.3 million beneficiaries – over four times the number of people reached in January – with emergency food and cash-based assistance.

    Situation Update

    • Large-scale humanitarian assistance has reduced household food consumption gaps while the Gu rains are gradually increasing pasture and water availability in most parts of Somalia. Even so, there remains an elevated risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5) due to the combination of severe food consumption gaps, high acute malnutrition, high disease burden, and reliance on humanitarian assistance.

    • The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance has increased to 6.7 million people, up from 5 million in August 2016. According to the latest projections by the FAO-managed Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU), a total of 3.2 million people are expected to face Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phases 3 and 4) levels of food insecurity through June. Food security is expected to further deteriorate over the coming months with improvements not expected in some of the worst affected areas until August or September at the earliest.

    • Rains have subsided in most of the districts in Lower and Middle Shabelle regions (including Jowhar, Wanlaweyne, Adale and Afgoye) thus opening up key supply corridor that were temporarily rendered impassable at the onset of rains. However, Marka and Barowe districts are still experiencing torrential rains affecting the supply corridors from Mogadishu and driving up prices of commodities in these districts.

  • Up to 200,000 IDPs, refugees will be hit by Sudan flooding, predicts ACAPS
    Source: Assessment Capacities Project
    Country: South Sudan, Sudan

    Floods during the rainy season from June-October will affect about 200,000 people, mostly in southern Sudan. Particularly vulnerable are 2.3 million IDPs and about 400,000 South Sudanese.

    Anticipated scope and scale

    Floods during the rainy season from June until at least October will affect about 200,000 people, mostly in southern Sudan. Particularly vulnerable are the displaced in southern Sudan, where there are 2.3 million IDPs and about 400,000 South Sudanese, 110,000 of whom arrived in 2017. Floods will damage key WASH infrastructure and increase the caseload of diseases including cholera and malaria. Houses will be destroyed and flooding will damage crops and isolate some localities, driving up food prices.

    Aggravating factors: Existing outbreaks of malaria and cholera among refugee and IDP populations, poor WASH infrastructure, and overcrowded camps aggravate health conditions while the lean season worsens food security and nutrition levels.

    Preparedness and response: Response will be limited as there is a lack of presence to respond to isolated flooding. Many South Sudanese refugees who arrived in 2017 are located in areas where there is limited or no humanitarian presence.

    Priorities

    WASH infrastructure will be damaged and safe water sources will be contaminated

    Health response to outbreaks, including cholera and malaria

    Shelter to repair and replace housing, especially in camps

    Humanitarian constraints

    Humanitarian access will be limited as roads are damaged and river transport is difficult. Some areas are likely to be cut off. As humanitarian presence is limited in some likely floodaffected locations, particularly West Kordofan and East Darfur, immediate response will be difficult. Poor reporting on weather conditions and diseases further constrains response.

    Limitations

    Existing WASH, nutrition, health, and shelter needs for the displaced and resident population is lacking. The number of IDPs is not accurate due to lack of access. Reporting on previous flooding is inconsistent.

  • Security, safe access to beneficiaries 'key concerns' for food distributions in Mosul - WFP
    Source: World Food Programme
    Country: Iraq, Syrian Arab Republic

    The quantity and quality of food consumed by people in Mosul has deteriorated. This is due to conflict in western Mosul and lack of purchasing power in eastern Mosul.

    Highlights

    • The quantity and quality of food consumed by people in Mosul has deteriorated, according to WFP’s latest mobile assessment. This is due to conflict in western Mosul and lack of purchasing power in eastern Mosul.

    • Security and safe access to beneficiaries remains a key concern following attacks on WFP distributions in western Mosul at the end of April. WFP continues to monitor the security situation.

    • In order to treat cases of malnutrition and prevent a rise in malnutrition rates amongst young children, WFP is distributing a nutritional product along with Immediate Response Rations.

    Operational Updates

    • In April 2017, WFP provided assistance in all 18 governorates of Iraq. Over 1.15 million people received Family Food Rations, and 347,000 people received Cash-based Transfers. In addition, 415,000 people in Anbar, Baghdad, Erbil, Kirkuk, Ninewa and Salah al-Din received Immediate Response Rations.

    • The quantity and quality of food consumed by people in Mosul has deteriorated, according to WFP’s latest mobile assessment. This is due to conflict in western Mosul and lack of purchasing power in eastern Mosul, where markets are functioning but people have little or no money. People in eastern Mosul continue to rely on food assistance from humanitarian organisations and the government as they do not have enough money to buy food in the markets. In western Mosul, families are eating fewer meals, with some limited to only eating bread and vegetables.

    • Families receiving WFP assistance are increasingly able to meet their food needs without having to resort to negative coping strategies such as skipping meals, with less than four percent of families reported as taking these actions. In addition, and according to WFP monitoring, which also found that beneficiary families across the country have a diverse diet. Across all forms of assistance, women are involved in decision-making over food in a majority of families.

    • In order to treat cases of malnutrition and prevent a rise in malnutrition rates, WFP is distributing Plumpy’Sup along with Immediate Response Rations. A two-month supply of the nutritional product will be provided to support all children fleeing western Mosul between the ages of six months and five years. Plumpy’Sup is a soft, peanut-butter-like supplementary food that supports the nutritional needs of young children. This intervention comes following reports from WFP’s partner that a higher number of children from western Mosul are suffering from moderately acute malnutrition than expected.

    Los nuevos fondos se utilizarán para fortalecer la resiliencia de las comunidades locales y apoyar las necesidades de seguridad alimentaria de las poblaciones afectadas por desastres naturales.

    Cancún, 24 de mayo de 2017

    La Comisión Europea ha anunciado hoy una financiación de 14.3 millones de euros para apoyar a los países afectados por desastres naturales e invertir en la reducción del riesgo de desastres y la resiliencia en América Latina y el Caribe en 2017.

    El anuncio lo ha hecho el comisario europeo de Ayuda Humanitaria y Gestión de Crisis Christos Stylianides quien participa en la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre Reducción del Riesgo de Desastres en Cancún, México, junto con el Presidente de México y los líderes de América Latina.

    "La Unión Europea ha ayudado a América Latina y el Caribe en todos los grandes desastres naturales recientes, desde el huracán Matthew de octubre en Haití hasta los incendios forestales de febrero en Chile y las inundaciones de marzo en Perú y Colombia de este año. Estamos comprometidos en continuar apoyando a la región y a las comunidades para que puedan prepararse mejor para enfrentar nuevas amenazas y de esa manera puedan ser más resilientes cuando llegue una nueva emergencia", declaró el Comisario Stylianides.

    Los nuevos fondos se utilizarán para fortalecer la resiliencia de las comunidades locales y apoyar las necesidades de seguridad alimentaria de las poblaciones afectadas por desastres naturales. Desde 1994, la Comisión ha brindado más de 1.000 millones de euros en asistencia humanitaria a América Latina y el Caribe, centrándose en las poblaciones más afectadas por los desastres naturales, la violencia y la preparación de las comunidades para hacer frente a futuras emergencias.

    Antecedentes

    La región de América Latina y el Caribe es una de las zonas del mundo más propensas a desastres y está altamente expuesta a amenazas naturales como terremotos, erupciones volcánicas, inundaciones, tsunamis, deslizamientos de tierra y sequías.

    Además, el fenómeno de El Niño (incluyendo su variante costera, que consiste en un calentamiento anormal de las aguas del Océano Pacífico) provoca regularmente eventos climáticos catastróficos como sequías e inundaciones que causan grandes consecuencias humanitarias. Cuando ocurren desastres, las necesidades inmediatas de la población afectada incluyen refugios, alimentos, agua potable, atención primaria de salud, artículos básicos para el hogar y apoyo temprano para la recuperación de los medios de vida.

  • Violence in DRC's Kasai region puts 400,000 children at risk of severe acute malnutrition - UNICEF
    Source: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Democratic Republic of the Congo

    In Central Kasai alone, more than one-third of health centres have been forced to close due to security concerns or lack of medical supplies, depriving children of vital services and medicine.

    PRESS RELEASE – The crisis in Greater Kasai in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has severely disrupted life-saving interventions for children in recent months, putting an estimated 400,000 children at risks of severe acute malnutrition in the Greater Kasai, said UNICEF.

    Non-operational infrastructure in Kasai Central

    Across the five provinces of Greater Kasai, critical health infrastructures are no longer operational due to the conflict. In Central Kasai Province alone, more than one-third of health centers have been forced to close following looting, due to security concerns for staff or lack of medical supplies, depriving children of vital services and medicine.

    “These children are among the most vulnerable in the country, and now they face a looming crisis if access to basic services is not restored quickly,” said Marie-Pierre Poirier, UNICEF’s Regional Director for West and Central Africa.

    Severe acute malnutrition in the Greater Kasaï

    The nutrition situation of children is of particular concern because insecurity has made farming difficult for the local population. Eight health zones in Greater Kasai have been put on nutritional alert since the intensification of the conflict in August 2016. Supplies of food and basic necessities are dwindling, and displacement has forced families to live in conditions with inadequate hygiene or sanitation.

    Even before the latest wave of violence, the Kasai Provinces were among the poorest in the country. More than one in ten children die before the age of five due to lack of adequate health care. Half the children suffer from chronic malnutrition or stunting. In recent months, widespread conflict across the region has exacerbated the situation.

    UNICEF’s response to severe acute malnutrition in the Greater Kasai

    “Our priority over the next few weeks is to reach thousands of severely malnourished children that can no longer be cared for in the health centers that have been destroyed,” said Tajudeen Oyewale, acting UNICEF Representative in the Democratic Republic of Congo. “But insecurity in these remote areas is making our work very challenging.”

    UNICEF has stepped up its humanitarian response across the five Kasai provinces, providing therapeutic food to thousands of children in nutritional centres and training hundreds of community workers so they are able to screen children suffering from severe acute malnutrition.

  • Oxfam urges action against famine on eve of G7 meeting
    Source: Oxfam
    Country: Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen

    If each G7 government contributed its fair share to the UN's appeal for $6.3 billion for all four countries, Oxfam estimates this would raise almost half the total required.

    Group of Seven leaders meeting in Taormina, Sicily, this week should take the lead in fighting famine and immediately fund nearly half ($2.9 billion) of the UN’s urgent appeal to avoid catastrophic hunger and more deaths, urged Oxfam today. Without an immediate and sweeping response, this crisis will spiral out of control.

    Further delay will cost more lives.

    Deadly famine is already affecting 100,000 people in parts of South Sudan and threatens to extend to Yemen, Somalia and northeast Nigeria. Widespread famine across all four countries is not yet inevitable, but G7 leaders need to act now with a massive injection of aid, backed with a forceful diplomatic push to bring an end to the long-standing conflicts that are driving this hunger crisis.

    Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International, said: "Political failure has led to these crises - political leadership is needed to resolve them. G7 leaders cannot walk away from Taormina without providing emergency funding and clear solutions to tackle the root causes: the world’s most powerful leaders must now act to prevent a catastrophe happening on their watch.

    "Our world of plenty today faces an unprecedented four famines. If G7 leaders were to travel to any of these four countries, they would see for themselves how life is becoming impossible for so many people: many are already dying in pain, from disease and extreme hunger."

    If each G7 government contributed its fair share to the UN's appeal for $6.3 billion for all four countries, Oxfam estimates that this would raise almost half of the total required. These UN appeals are still only 30 percent funded across the four countries.

    No G7 country has provided its fair share of funding for all four countries.

    G7 commitments to food security and nutrition

    In 2015, the G7 committed to lift 500 million people out of hunger and malnutrition, yet 30 million people across the four countries are now experiencing severe hunger - 10 million of whom are facing emergency and famine conditions. The number of people experiencing acute food insecurity is estimated to have risen by about 40 percent over the last two years. G7 leaders should uphold the commitments they have made on hunger and malnutrition and give more importance to crisis prevention and supporting smallholder farmers’ resilience in order to reduce needs over time.

    Conflict and famine

    In addition to funding the UN appeal, G7 leaders should press for immediate ceasefires and inclusive peace processes, as well as for safe access to places where aid agencies are having trouble reaching people in need. Conflict has driven millions of people from their homes and communities, cutting them off from their fields, jobs, food, and markets.

    In Yemen, countries including G7 members continue to supply weapons, munitions, military equipment, technology, or logistical and financial support for military action that is in contravention of the rules of war. In South Sudan, three years of conflict have displaced more than 3.5 million people – including 2 million children. Somalia also remains an active conflict where access is limited by Al Shabaab, as well as other parties involved in the conflict. Nigeria’s conflict has spread into neighboring Niger, Chad and Cameroon forcing 2.6 million people to flee and leaving nearly 11 million people in need of emergency aid.

    Famine and hunger are the glaring symptoms of larger challenges that include climate, migration and inequality which must all be tackled together if progress is to be made.

    Climate

    Climate change is not a distant future threat: it is helping fuel a humanitarian disaster in Somalia and other countries in the Horn of Africa. There could be no stronger call to G7 leaders to take action on climate change than suffering on this scale. The G7 members must make it clear that they are committed to implementing the Paris Agreement. It is vital that the summit produces a clear and strong outcome on climate change action – no excuses.

    Migration

    When G7 leaders have chosen a symbolic place to meet in Sicily – Europe’s coast, where thousands of people have died trying to reach safety and security – it is reprehensible that they are set to overlook the suffering of refugees and migrants on their doorstep, and ignore the challenge of migration and forced displacement. Rich countries should lean into this challenge, exercise positive global leadership and compassion, and agree to concrete steps that protect the dignity and rights of people on the move.

    Inequality

    When one in 10 people go to bed hungry every night, famine represents one extreme end of the inequality spectrum and is in itself the result of the instability which inequality helps to drive. Oxfam is calling on G7 leaders to commit to the developing a fully fledged action plan to tackle growing inequality, in line with their commitment to the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals.

    2. Oxfam will be attending at the G7 summit with spokespeople for interview on the ‘four famines’, inequality, climate and migration in English, Italian, French, Spanish, German, Chichewa/Nyanja and Tumbuka.

    3. Oxfam will be presenting a number of stunts over the period of the summit on the themes of the 4 famines, climate and migration. The first will take place on the morning of Thursday 25 May and will be on the subject of the four famines, taking place near the International Media Centre in Giardini Naxos.

    5. The UN ‘four famines’ appeal was originally launched for a total of $5.6 billion http://interactive.unocha.org/emergency/2017_famine/index.php and was later revised up to $6.3 billon after the Somalia response plan was updated in earlier this month http://reliefweb.int/report/somalia/somalia-humanitarian-response-plan-may-2017-revision

    6. There has been a rise of 40 percent in the number of people experiencing acute food insecurity over the last two years according to FEWSNET: http://www.fews.net/global/alert/january-25-2017

    7. Oxfam’s fair share analysis: Oxfam calculates its fair share analysis by comparing data from the UN’s Financial Tracking System (FTS) and information received from G7 members with their national income. No G7 country has provided its fair share of funding for all four nations facing famine. (The FTS website may not have been updated with recent pledges.)

    According to UN figures, as of May 18, only 30 percent of the $6.3 billion needed has been received. Country by country, this means that Nigeria is only 21 percent funded; Somalia, 33 percent; South Sudan, 42 percent; and Yemen, 21 percent.

    G7 leaders must commit to fund their fair share for each country, while pressing other donors to do their part, in order to prevent more people from dying of hunger. These contributions alone would mean $492 million for Nigeria, $703 million for Somalia, $764 million for South Sudan, and $964 million for Yemen.

    G7 must also commit to increase aid for longer term solutions that build resilience and improve food security and nutrition, in order to prevent further crises from escalating into disasters.

    Only one G7 leader (UK) has provided its fair share for Yemen, two (UK and Canada) for South Sudan, two (UK and Germany) for Somalia and two (Canada and Germany) for Nigeria.

    The United States Congress commitment of $990m to address famine in the four countries is welcomed, but this must be urgently translated into aid on the ground if the impact of famines is to be reduced.

    1. About 30 million people are are experiencing alarming levels of hunger in Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia and Yemen - 10 million of them are facing emergency and famine conditions. (10 million people are at IPC4 and 5, and a further 20 million people are at IPC3.)
    • South Sudan: 4.9 million people dangerously hungry (IPC Phases 3-5, including 100,000 already in famine)
    • Yemen: 17 million people dangerously hungry (IPC Phases 3-4)
    • Somalia: 3.2 million people dangerously hungry in Somalia (IPC Phases 3-4)
    • Nigeria: 4.7 million people dangerously hungry in northeast Nigeria (IPC Phases 3-5)
    1. Climate change is helping to fuel a humanitarian disaster in East Africa where 13 million people are dangerously hungry and Somalia is on the brink of famine: https://www.oxfam.org/sites/www.oxfam.org/files/mb-climate-crisis-east-africa-drought-270417-en.pdf

    2. Oxfam is responding directly and with local organizations across the affected countries delivering food and other essential aid including cash so that people can buy from local markets. It is striving to ensure people have clean water to be used for drinking, cooking, washing and sanitation and to fight waterborne diseases such as diarrhea and cholera. We are also helping vulnerable communities, focusing especially on women, to stay safe and access aid in these unstable circumstances.

  • UN calls for urgent funding to stem cholera outbreak
    Source: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen
    Country: Yemen

    In the last three weeks, authorities have reported over 35,500 suspected cholera cases, a third of whom are children, and 361 associated deaths in 19 of 22 governorates.

    Sana’a, 24 May 2017

    Cholera continues to spread at an unprecedented rate throughout Yemen affecting men, women, and children who have for more than two years withstood the consequences of a conflict that is collapsing institutions and social safety nets. With urgency I appeal to United Nations Members States for financial and political support to help avert what is sure to be an additional and devastating blow to Yemen.

    In the last three weeks, health authorities have reported over 35,500 suspected cholera cases, a third of whom are children, and 361 associated deaths in 19 of 22 governorates.

    Malnutrition and cholera are interconnected; weakened and hungry people are more likely to contract cholera and cholera is more likely to flourish in places where malnutrition exists. Seventeen million people in Yemen are food insecure, including 462,000 children in the grip of acute malnutrition. Seven million people in Yemen face the possibility of famine and now over one hundred thousand people are estimated to be at risk of contracting cholera.

    The speed at which cholera is spreading among the population exceeds the capacity of the health system to respond given its weakened state after more than two years of conflict, import restrictions and the lack of regular salary payments to health workers. Hundreds of thousands of people are at a greater risk of dying as they face the ‘triple threat’ of conflict, starvation and cholera.

    Building on their presence in all 22 governorates across the country, national and international humanitarians are valiantly doing everything they can to prevent and treat cholera. However, they are doing so while facing a worst-case scenario - the majority of health care centers are closed, those that are open have limited staff and supplies, water and sanitation services are unable to provide clean water to the population, and humanitarian funds available to cover the existing institutional gaps and thwart the spread of the disease are meager.

    Humanitarians are seeking US$55.4 million to prevent and treat cholera at the national, governorate and community level in the next six months. However, every day that funding is delayed the outbreak affects more people and more resources are needed to control it.

    Cholera is preventable and treatable and no life should be lost to this disease. Humanitarians are acting and responding and we now need UN Member States to please help us by providing new funds and by ensuring that all funds pledged during the High Level Pledging Event in Geneva are made effective without delay.
