Launch of the Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 and the World Humanitarian Data and Trends 2018 At the end of November 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$ US$24.93 to assist 97.9 million people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The requirements are lower than announced at the end of October ($25.2 billion) as those for Ethiopia have now been reduced. The plans are funded at $14.29 billion; this amounts to 57.3 per cent of financial requirements for 2018.

Two million less people are considered to be in need in Mali than at the end of October, hence the reduction in the overall number of people in need in this month’s overview.

Global requirements are $1.8 billion higher than at this time in 2017, and the amount of funding received is $1.69 billion higher than it was at this time last year.

On 4 December 2018, the USG/ERC launched the Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 and World Humanitarian Data and Trends 2018 at an event in the Council Chamber, United Nations Office of Geneva. The event was attended by almost 200 representatives of Member States, intergovernmental and international organizations, UN organizations and NGOs, and by the Red Cross movement, the World Economic Forum and specialized meteorological foundations. A recording of the event can be found here: Event in Geneva to launch the GHO 2019 and WHDT 2018.

Pooled Funds In 2018, as of early December, country-based pooled funds (CBPF) received a total of US$845 million, once again setting a new record in annual contributions. Generous support from 31 Member States, from one crown dependency and from the general public through the UN Foundation, continues to demonstrate a high level of confidence in this mechanism for reaching the people most affected by humanitarian emergencies. In the past year, CBPFs have allocated a total $695 million, with $81 million awaiting approval. The Yemen Humanitarian Fund (HF) remains the largest of the funds, with $187 million already allocated towards response to urgent humanitarian needs. The HFs in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, South Sudan and Turkey each allocated over $50 million. Globally, three-fifths of all CBPF allocations were disbursed to NGOs, including 24 per cent ($170 million) directly to national and local NGOs. Another two-fifths were allocated to UN agencies, while Red Cross/ Red Crescent organizations received 1 percent of funding ($8 million).

Between 1 January and 30 November 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $488 million in grants from the Central Emergency

Response Fund (CERF), including $308 million from the Rapid Response Window and $180 million from the Underfunded Emergencies Window.

The grants will support life-saving activities in 48 countries. In November, a total of $11 million was released to scale-up response to cholera in Nigeria and pneumonic plague in Madagascar, as well as to expand existing UN programmes in Venezuela in support of government efforts to increase essential health and nutrition services.

Democratic Republic of the Congo: Le HCR lance deux plans de réponse pour les réfugiés en RDC et dans la région

KINSHASA, 11 DECEMBRE 2018

Le Haut Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés (HCR), en coopération avec 60 partenaires, a publié aujourd’hui deux plans de réponse pour 2019-2020 pour la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC) et la région. Pour venir en aide aux réfugiés et aux populations hôtes dans d’autres pays d’asile fortement affectés par les conflits, les partenaires lancent un appel de fonds conjoint de 918 millions de dollars américains pour 2019.

L’un des plans est destiné aux congolais ayant fui la RDC dans d’autres pays d’Afrique, et l’autre aux réfugiés qui se trouvent en RDC qui ont fui d’autres pays de la région.

Le plan de Réponse National (2019-2020) pour les réfugiés vivant en RDC est un outil de coordination entre plusieurs acteurs humanitaires et de développement, qui a pour objectif de couvrir les besoins des quatre principales populations de réfugiés (Burundais, Centrafricains, Rwandais et Sud-Soudanais) réparties à travers le territoire congolais.

«Plus d’un demi-million de réfugiés originaires de pays voisins ont été contraints de fuir leurs foyers et trouver refuge en RDC. Ce chiffre continue d’augmenter», a rappelé Ann Encontre, Représentante régionale du HCR en RDC et Coordinatrice pour les réfugiés congolais.

175 millions de dollars seront nécessaires pour réaliser les objectifs de ce plan, en collaboration avec 11 partenaires en RDC.

D’autre part, le plan de Réponse Régional (2019-2020) pour les réfugiés congolais cible 743 millions de dollars, qui devraient permettre de répondre aux besoins les plus urgents. Ces besoins comprennent la protection, l’eau et l’assainissement, la sécurité alimentaire, la santé, et l’éducation des réfugiés congolais se trouvant en dehors de la RDC.

Compte tenu de la capacité limitée des communautés d'accueil à supporter l'impact d'un nombre massif de réfugiés, les deux stratégies de réponse aideront également les populations locales, renforçant ainsi la coexistence pacifique entre les réfugiés et les communautés d'accueil.

« En soutenant le développement de moyens de subsistance viables et en adoptant une approche fondée sur la résilience, les réfugiés pourront contribuer au développement de leur pays d'accueil et de leur pays d'origine à leur retour », a conclu Ann Encontre.

La RDC accueille 531.819 réfugiés dont la plupart ont fui les violences dans les pays limitrophes. On compte également 781.917 réfugiés congolais vivant dans les pays principaux d’asile en Afrique.

Education Cluster

Overview

From July to September 2018, the Education Cluster provided access to education in emergency (EiE) services to 640,729 children and young people (375,880 boys and young men, 264,849 girls and young women) from internally displaced populations (IDPs) and host communities. This equates to 95 per cent of the annual target for the cluster.

In the same period, Education Cluster partners provided training to 8,286 (5,731 male, 2,555 female) teachers, members of parent–teacher associations and members of school management committees. Training was conducted in the life skills curriculum; general and subject-specific pedagogy; and training of parent–teacher associations and school management committees.

Under the integrated response, through the World Food Programme, the South Sudan Humanitarian Fund and other private funding mechanisms, partners were able to provide school meals for 526,582 learners (47 per cent female). The World Food Programme contributed 78 per cent of the response, the South Sudan Humanitarian Fund contributed 14 per cent and the remaining 8 per cent was through other funding mechanisms.

Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools was provided to 218,012 children (39 per cent female), 22 per cent though establishment of hand-washing facilities and 55 per cent through building and rehabilitation of latrines.
