Iraqi Kurdistan nears breaking point

More than 1 million people internally displaced by the terrorist group ISIL, recently calling itself Islamic State (IS), in Addition to 225,000 refugees from Syria are taking a devastating economic and social toll on Iraqi Kurdistan, says IRIN.

“The population of the semi-autonomous region has grown by 28 percent in the space of 12 months, piling pressure on education and health services. With further military offensives planned against IS, there are fears that yet more people will seek safety in the region.”

“The scale of the influx has created significant competition for jobs, pushing down wages and household incomes across the board, while demand for water, electricity and waste management is outstripping supply.”

Displaced women and girls trapped in Afghanistan’s cities

Seven out of 10 displaced Afghan female say they have never attended a school. They also face “significant constraints” to health and employment opportunities, according to a new report by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

  • “We are imprisoned in our tents and we don’t have permission to go out. What is this sort of life worth?” says a 24 year-old woman from the Helmand province, internally displaced in Kabul and one of the respondents in the report.
  • “We are being sold in exchange for money like animals. Our rights are ignored; we are often sold to widowers, blind men, disabled or old men and we have no choice to refuse marrying them”, says a 23 year-old woman from the Muhammad Aghai district in the Logar province, now living in a camp for internally displaced in Kabul.
  • Displaced women and girls across Afghanistan cities are suffering unacceptable levels of hunger and high levels of psychological trauma, without any mental health assistance support to turn to, says the report.

Critical Food Insecurity in Central African Republic (CAR)

Farmers in the CAR urgently need seeds and tools for the planting season in April to prevent further deterioration of their livelihoods in the conflict-stricken country, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said today.

Some 1.5 million people are currently food insecure across the country and this figure is likely to rise in the absence of immediate support. Additionally, the significant food shortages across the country could worsen, population movements could result in increased tension, the return of displaced persons and refugees to their villages could be delayed.

Refugee Crisis in Cameroon

The number of internally displaced people in the north has nearly doubled since 10 February, to 117,000,  bringing the total number of displaced in Cameroon to an estimated 412,700, including 66,000 who are fleeing Boko Haram violence in Nigeria and the remainder from the Central African Republic.

More than 120,000 displaced amid fighting in southern Philippines

More than 120,000 people have fled their homes since late January after fighting broke out between government forces and armed groups in the southern Philippines island of Mindanao, reported UNHCR.

The number of displaced is expected to rise as the fighting spreads to local communities hosting the displaced, said the UN refugee agency.

An estimated 13 municipalities in Maguindanao and North Cotabato have been affected in eight weeks of clashes between the state security forces and the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters, said the report.

Some of the IDPs are sheltering in schools and public buildings, with unknown numbers staying with friends or relatives, according to UNHCR.

Two Million People Facing Food Shortages in Malawi

Posted by feww on April 26, 2013

Maize prices soared by 231 percent in Malawi

The southern African nation of Malawi is experiencing a maize shortage after two consecutive dry seasons. Maize is Malawi’s staple diet, accounting for 90 percent of all caloric intake, said a report.

“A 50-kg bag of maize used to cost around 13 dollars, but now the price has more than doubled to about 30 dollars – way above the earnings of those living in dire poverty, on less than 20 dollars a month.”

The food situation has further worsened recently, as 30,000 metric tons of maize held in the strategic grain reserves were spoiled.

Death toll in Dhaka building collapse tops 300

Death toll in Dhaka building collapse had reached 304, as of posting, and the authorities feared that hundreds of others were still trapped in the wreckage.

  • The building housed factories that made low-cost garments for Western brands, especially the European and North American chains, said a report
  • About 60 percent of Bangladesh’s low-cost garment exports go to Europe,  23 percent to the U.S., and 5 percent to Canada.
  • “Wednesday’s collapse was the third major industrial incident in five months in Bangladesh. In November, a fire at the Tazreen Fashion factory on the outskirts of Dhaka killed 112 people.”
  • Some 3,122 people, most of them female garment workers, were in the Rana Plaza building at the time of collapse despite warnings that it was structurally unsafe, officials  said.
  • About 2,350 people have been rescued from the wreckage, but more than half of them injured.

Extreme Rain Events Pound East Africa, Killing many, Displacing Tens of Thousands

Posted by feww on April 13, 2013

Severe floods wreak havoc across much of East Africa

Much of East Africa including parts of seven countries—Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Tanzania have been affected by deadly floods that were triggered by extreme rain events, beginning mid-March.

The rains have “caused significant flooding in the Lake Victoria basin in Uganda and Kenya, the southern Maasai rangelands in Kenya, and along the Wabi Shabelle in Ethiopia in late March and early April,” according to Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET).

“Above-normal rains have occurred in several areas, including northern and western Tanzania; Rwanda; Burundi; the Lake Victoria Basin; western, southern and northeastern Kenya; southern and central Somalia; and eastern and south-eastern Ethiopia,” said FEWS NET.

  • The rains are forecast to continue through May.
  • Floods have resulted in the loss of life, displacements of large numbers of people, the destruction of crops, and damage to infrastructure, FEWS NET reported.

Kenya

Flash floods have killed dozens of people in Kenya, displacing tens of thousands, and destroying crops and much of the infrastructure.

“If the current rains continue with the same intensity for the next three weeks, we expect food shortages and escalation of food prices in May and June this year,” according to the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS).

“In northeastern Kenya’s Dadaab refugee complex, home to about 463,000 mainly Somali refugees, the rains have displaced some families and affected commodity prices.”

Somalia

“Robust precipitation accumulations (>75mm) were again observed over central and southern Somalia,” states an Africa Hazards Outlook.

“Many local areas have already experienced more than three times their normal rainfall accumulation since the beginning of April, sustaining the risk for localized flash flooding and downstream river inundation over the Jubba and Shabelle River basins in eastern Ethiopia and southern Somalia.”

  • “SWALIM [Somalia Water and Land Information Management] field reports in the last two days indicate river breakages at Hurway (about 8m wide), Eji (about 6m wide) and Maadheere (about 14m wide) villages all in Middle Shabelle Region. This has led to inundation of large areas, causing destruction of cropped area[s] of unconfirmed acreage, and displacement of several families.”

Birds, Bees, Neonicotinoids and Deadly Disease

Posted by feww on April 10, 2013

China culls more than 40 tons of poultry daily

China has reported 33 cases of H7N9, including nine fatalities, in Shanghai municipality and the provinces of Jiangsu, Anhui and Zhejiang, according to the country’s National Health and Family Planning Commission.

China shut down poultry markets in Shanghai on April 5 and began culling tens of thousands of birds as a precaution to stop the spread of a new, deadly strain of avian flu.

“A top Chinese biology lab has ascribed the H7N9 avian influenza to genetic reassortment of wild birds from east Asia and chickens from east China,” said a report.

  • “A virus carried by wild birds from the Republic of Korea and other east Asian regions mingled with the avian influenza virus carried by ducks and chickens in the Yangtze River Delta during migration,” researchers said.

Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)

“Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a serious problem threatening the health of honey bees and the economic stability of commercial beekeeping and pollination operations in the United States. ” USDA said.

  • Bee pollination adds more than $15 billion in increased crop value in the U.S. each year.
  • The number of managed honey bee colonies has dropped from more than 5 million in the 1940s to less than 2.5 million today.
  • The almond industry in California requires the service of 1.4 million colonies of honey bees.
  • Losses from the winter of 2006-2011 averaged about 33 percent each year, with a third of all losses attributed to CCD by beekeepers.
  • Total losses of managed honey bee colonies were 21.9 percent nationwide for the 2011/2012 winter, according to the annual survey conducted by the USDA.
  • Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine.
  • The European Food Safety Authority recently stated that neonicotinoids pose an unacceptably high risk to bees.
  • The American Bird Conservancy recently published a review of 200 studies on neonicotinoids and called for a ban on neonicotinoid use as seed treatments due to toxicity to birds, aquatic invertebrates, and other wildlife.
  • A coalition of beekeepers, conservation, food campaigners and sustainable agriculture advocates sued EPA last month on grounds that the agency has failed to protect the bees.
  • “The lawsuit accuses the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of failing to protect the insects – which pollinate three-quarters of all food crops – from nerve agents that it says should be suspended from use. Neonicotinoids, the world’s most widely used insecticides, are also facing the prospect of suspension in the European Union, after the health commissioner pledged to press on with the proposed ban despite opposition from the UK and Germany.”

Up to Half Million People Displaced by Flooding in Kenya

Posted by feww on May 16, 2012

Extreme rain events flood dozens of rivers in Kenya, leaving at least 50 dead and up to 1/2 million people displaced

Flash floods and landslides in Kenya have so far killed at least 50 people in the capital Nairobi, destroying thousands of homes, businesses, and public infrastructure, spoiling crops and food stocks, and leaving  about half a million people displaced.

Most parts of the country have received significant rainfall of up to 50mm per day since late April. Heavy rains are expected to continue, especially in the central, western and coastal areas through end of June, reports said.

Recurring cycles of drought and deluge have plagued Kenya since the 1970s.

Other Global Disasters, Significant Events

  • Brazil.  A severe drought is affecting at least 1,100 towns in NE Brazil, devastating crops and threatening the lives of local residents and livestock.  In rural areas ‘water wars’ have erupted, claiming an average of one life per day, reports said.
    • Drought has devastated farm output and destroyed about half of the region’s livestock.
    • The drought is said to be Brazil’s worst in living memory.
