HUMANITARIAN OVERVIEW

The report examines major humanitarian crises worldwide to identify likely developments and corresponding needs

Massive increase of IDPs recorded in CAR, Congo, DRC, Iraq, Mali, and Somalia throughout 2017, likely to continue rising into 2018.

Food security is likely to deteriorate in northeast Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Yemen, as there are risks of pockets of Famine (IPC 5) in these countries.

Number of people in need of protection assistance is likely to increase in 2018 in DRC, Iraq, Libya, Mali, South Sudan, Sudan, and among Rohingya population.

Poor WASH and health facilities are likely to further compound ongoing cholera crisis in Congo, DRC, Nigeria, and Yemen.
