Monthly Humanitarian Bulletin (August 2016)

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Brussels Conference will provide a platform for the government of Afghanistan to set out its vision, development strategy and planned reforms by gathering together up to 70 countries and 30 international organizations and agencies.
  • ACF released a report, “Afghanistan: Where Humanitarian Concerns Do Not Match International Action” to point out how the current management of aid in Afghanistan have real consequences on the impact of service delivery.
  • ACBAR calls for protection of civilians, whether they live in government, or in opposition held areas. Respect and justice is demanded from all parties in the conflict - from frontline workers and nurses to school teachers’ whose workplaces are raided, bombed, or threatened by armed groups, or government and international forces.
  • Afghanistan is facing a humanitarian crisis with an estimated one million people on the move by the end of the year. As a result, the Humanitarian Community in Afghanistan launched a Flash Appeal requesting US$150 million to support the thousands of vulnerable families returning from Pakistan every day.
