The following prefectures are affected: Nzérékoré, Gueckedou, Matoto, Ratoma, Fria, Dubreka, Kindia, Coyah, Kaloum, Dixinn, Forécariah and Matam. The Prefectures of Siguiri, Labé and Boké are on alert. In this particular situation and in compliance with the International Health Regulations (IHR), the government, through the Ministry of Health has declared measles outbreak in those prefectures on February 08th, 2017. It also seeks support from technical and financial partners to rapidly eradicate the measles before the months of execessive heat which leads to the rapid spread of measles.  
FL-2017-000021-ZAF Flood South Africa The South African Weather Service says?tropical cyclone Dineo?is weaker than forecasters predicted and has now been downgraded to a status of ?tropical depression ex-Dineo'.The strong winds have died down from 120 kilometres per hour, to 80 kilometres per hour in Mozambique. The weather service says despite the downgrade, residents in parts of the country can still expect flooding and heavy rains. Limpopo?later on Thursday afternoon as well as KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga. It is forecasted that the tropical cyclone lost momentum when it crossed the inland and missed the ocean. ?We expected it to be downgraded because the cyclone moved over land and it needs heat from the ocean to survive.? In view of the projected needs, and after analysing demands on its capacity, the South African Red Cross Society has requested support from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Cross (IFRC) to support response efforts. At this moment IFRC is making provision from the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) to support the mobilisation of Red Cross personnel, relief supplies and specialised equipment closer to areas that are likely to be affected. This will enable SARCS to undertake rapid assessments and immediate distribution of relief supplies after Cyclone DINEO's landfall. Based on further information on rapid assessments to be conducted on Friday 17 February 2017, daytime, when conditions are safe, additional assistance will most likely be requested through IFRC. 
FL-2017-000020-ZWE Flood Zimbabwe Tropical Cyclone DINEO (Category 1) has moved south-west over the Mozambique Channel towards southern Zimbabwe. Forecasts issued by The Meteorological Services Department of Zimbabwe (MSDZ) indicate that the country will experience tropical cyclone-type rainfall starting from Thursday 16 up to Monday 20 February 2017. The tropical cyclone is a serious threat and will be preceded by very strong and damaging winds followed by extreme flooding. The humanitarian impact of Tropical Cyclone DINEO threatens to be massive as projections shows that it will bring widespread torrential rain and damaging winds which can reach as high as 160km/hr. This will likely trigger flash floods which threaten human lives, animals and destruction assets and infrastructure. More than half of the country's dams are overpilling and this could exacerbate flooding resulting displacement of people and increasing the incidence of both water borne and vector diseases. 
IN-2017-000019-ZMB Insect Infestation Zambia A major fall armyworm infestation has affected at least seven countries in the region. Zambia has reported that almost 90,000 hectares of maize have been affected, forcing farmers to replant their crops.

FL-2017-000012-MOZ Flood Mozambique Since the onset of the rainy season in October 2016, torrential rains falling in central and southern Mozambique have resulted in numerous localized flooding incidents. According to the National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC), flooding this disaster season has cost the lives of 40 individuals and affected some 18,000 families (70,000 people) (News24 2017). Maputo and Gaza provinces, including the capitol of Maputo, have been the most affected areas of the country followed by Nampula and Sofala provinces. Most recently (14/15 January), flooding in Maputo city killed three people and displaced some 236 families. Additionally, authorities have reported that in recent days in Nampula and Sofala some 1,400 people have been affected by floods including six deaths and more than 200 family displacements (Verdade 2017). On 18 January 2017, the Government activated a nation-wide institutional ?Orange Alert? following the release of medium-term forecasts by the National Meteorological Institute projecting the occurrence of heavy rains and strong winds across the country until March 2017. The decision was announced following a meeting of the Technical Council for Disaster Management and seeks to intensify the Government's monitoring and readiness actions to address the potential impacts of flooding and cyclonic events during the disaster season. The ?Orange Alert? is released in parallel to the ongoing ?Red Alert? issued in 2016 for the southern and central regions of the country to address the effects of the food insecurity situation brought on by the 2015/16 El-Niño induced drought. At present, four river basins--Buzi and Pungue in the central region and Mutamba and Inhanombe in the southern region?are at ?alert? level and are expected to breach within the next 72 hours. The breach of these river basis is expected to cause floods in Govuro (North of Inhambane Province) and in Machanga (South of Sofala Province). According to the National Institute of Meteorology (INAM), heavy winds, strong storms and rain is expected from 25 - 26 January in Maputo Province and City and in Gaza Province.

CW-2017-000011-DZA Cold Wave Algeria The falling snow and cold weather in Algeria has affected the Eastern, Central and the high plateau regions. The snow has cut off numerous communities and villages, particularly in the mountainous areas, causing losses to livelihoods due to isolation, power cuts and material damages to the residents of these areas. Dwellings have been damaged by the heavy snowfall, especially the tents used by nomadic population. Initial assessments carried out by the ARCS indicate that up to 25,000 families have been affected by the adverse weather conditions to various degrees. To cope with the situation substantial Government and military resources have been deployed.

LS-2017-000009-ARG Land Slide Argentina On 10 January 2017, the accumulation of precipitation in Jujuy Province (approximately 1,500 km north-west of the city of Buenos Aires) led to landslides and floods in various locations in the department of Tumbaya such as Volcán, Tumbaya and Bárcenas (the most affected); a lesser impact was reported in the cities of León, Santa Barbara, Purmamarca, Humahuaca and San Martín. According to local media and residents, events of similar magnitude occurred in 1939 and 1978. Heavy rainfall has been recorded since early this year in many parts of the country; most of which have been "sudden and with abundant accumulations of water", causing complications at the local level in places such as the provinces of Santa Fe, Cordoba, Buenos Aires and Jujuy. One of the most affected localities is Volcán, the capital of Tumbaya department, which is located 41 km north of the city of San Salvador de Jujuy, the provincial capital. The mud and stones that slid down a hill near this town affected 90 per cent of the community's homes and blocked National Route 9, leaving the population with no access over land. In some areas, mud levels reached 2.2 metres, which led to the evacuation of 296 people, who are currently being housed in 3 temporary collective centres: Parador Laguna, a local church and a National Roads building. One person has been reported missing. Tumbaya, located 7 km north of Volcán (48 km from San Salvador de Jujuy) on National Route N? 9, suffered damage from the landslides and severe flooding, where water levels rose as high as 1.20 metres. The population here is approximately 500 people, of which 150 people (30 per cent of the total population) have been affected. Of these, ten families (about 50 people) had to be evacuated. The only land access to the area from the south on foot until traffic can be resumed over the lone access road (National Route N? 9); however, the area can be supplied from cities located to the north of the province such as Tilcara, as access to those areas is still possible. The town of Bárcena, with a population of 158 people, is located 10 km south of Volcán (31 km north of San Salvador de Jujuy); this entire area has been affected. A total of 100 people have been evacuated, of which 15 are being housed at Mountain Infantry Regiment (RIM 20) facilities, while others were transported to San Salvador de Jujuy. Due to the suddenness of the landslide, two people lost their lives while travelling through the town along National Route 9. The communities of Leon, Santa Barbara, Purmamarca, Humahuaca and San Martín, located north of the landslide in Volcán, were hit by flash floods during this same period; local authorities have assisted the affected families Currently, these communities are without communication, electricity and public services (water and sanitation). In regard to the electrical supply, the government estimates that it could be restored back to normal within the next 48 hours in some areas; however, no estimated time has been given for restoring the drinking water supply and sewage services. Local access to health (emergency services, health centres) is practically impossible due to the mud in the streets, as well as to the damage suffered by the physical facilities that provided these services. The province's Civil Defence Coordination has set up radio communications equipment, but it is not yet known when fixed and mobile telephone service will be restored. 
CW-2017-000008-MAR Cold Wave Morocco This wave of bitter cold continues its invasion of Morocco and a significant decrease in temperature was confirmed by the spokesman for the Communications Department at the Directorate of Meteorology, the significant drop in temperature will be felt in northern , east, south and in the mountainous areas. In anticipation of the severe cold wave the Interior Ministry and the Royal Gendarmerie and the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity launched a special program of solidarity for the benefit of population groups that suffer greatly from cold waves , especially Douars mountainous and remote areas. This assistance program has been launched in some heavily affected areas from last week. Several families received blankets and food and appropriate equipment for the winter. This wave of frost and snow has caused economic losses and livelihoods due to the isolation of several areas. Moreover, traffic was paralyzed and traffic accidents have occurred. The Ministry of Equipment and Transport has been mobilized to lift the isolation of remote areas and continues to launch periodic newsletters on road conditions and weather warnings. 
CW-2017-000007-MKD Cold Wave Macedonia In the afternoon of 5 January 2016, the western and north-eastern parts of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia were hit by a heavy snowstorm. In the evening, the temperatures decreased to 25 Celsius degrees below zero. The mountain passes through Gostivar, Kicevo, Kriva Palanka - Kustendil put a ban on the movement of heavy vehicles, while motor vehicles were moving in difficult conditions due to the icy road conditions. Specialized vehicles have been working on cleaning the roads from the snow. Many villages were cut off by high snowdrifts and the blocked roads in the regions of Skopje, Bitola, Kriva Palanka, Debar, Makedonski Brod, Gostivar, Kumanovo, Kichevo, Struga Ohrid and Stip, The Red Cross of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia assisted 255 vulnerable families in these regions. As a result of the cold and freezing temperatures, three people have been reported as dead in Skopje, Strumica and Pehcevo. Due to increased heavy snowfalls in the villages located in the mountainous regions of the country, the National Society conducted a needs assessment in cooperation with the local self-governments, crisis management center and the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy. As a result of the needs assessment, 555 families were identified as most vulnerable ones. Part of the settlements in Skopje (Aerodrom), Negotino and Kavadarci were left without water due to frozen or damaged pipes. 
EP-2017-000006-VUT Epidemic Vanuatu As of 6th January 2017, there were 596 suspected cases of dengue fever and 112 confirmed cases. There are more cases being reported and confirmed on Efate, Urban Port vila and nearby rural areas and cases are also coming in from Sola in Torba province, Luganville in Sanma, Emae in Shefa, Norsup in Malampa province and Lenakel in Tanna, Tafea province. The current Dengue epidemic of stereotype 2 affects all age groups. Of the 596 suspected cases, 112 have been confirmed positive, 4 of them severe. Twenty-four per cent of the cases are found among children between 5 and 14, 24.2 per cent are found among those between the ages of 15 and 24, and 19.4 per cent are among those between 25 and 34, and 18.8 per cent for patients above the age of 34, i.e. 86.6 per cent of cases have been found in the population above 4 years of age. As of the 9th of December, the Ministry of Health announced that they would no longer send all cases for testing. Only cases from new sites, severe dengue cases and about 2 cases per day will be tested to detect potential introduction of new dengue virus serotypes and/or Zika virus and/or Chikungunya virus. The number of confirmed cases may therefore not accurately reflect the true extent of the outbreak.

FL-2017-000002-MYS Flood Malaysia The seasonal heavy continuous rains in the East Coast of Malaysia from 26th December 2016 have caused flooding in two states, namely, Kelantan and Terengganu. The floods have temporarily displaced about 25,000 people and have rendered some villages inaccessible due to damaged bridges and blocked roads. Public facilities including health centres and schools were also inundated. Schools were cancelled in many of the districts as they were converted into evacuation centres. In Kelantan, three main rivers, Sungai Golok, Sungai Galas and Sungai Kelantan, have overflown and flooded several districts including Bachok, Gua Musang, Jeli, Kota Bahru, Machang, Pasir Mas, Pasir Puteh, Tanah Merah, Tumpat and Kuala Krai.

FL-2016-000137-ARG Flood Argentina On 25 and 26 December 2016, more than 20 locations in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Santa Fe were affected by intense rainfall which was accompanied by hail and strong electrical activity. The fact that these were low-lying areas, the soil's saturation and the presence of crevices in basins (the most important in Argentina) caused by the constant rainfall throughout the year led to significant flooding and overflows from rivers and streams. The localities affected in this province by this emergency in this period were not affected by the rainy season in 2015 and 2016. Pergamino, a city in northern Buenos Aires province was one of the most affected by the rainfall, receiving some 220 millimetres of water in 4 hours, causing the Pergamino Stream, its tributaries and effluents, such as Chu Creek, to overflow. This led to flooding throughout the city, which is organized into 24 urban and peri-urban neighbourhoods. The flooding, mainly impacted riverside neighbourhoods (the river cuts across the city) such as 9 de Julio, Cueto, Centenario, Tocha, San Vicente, Kennedy, Centro, 27 de Noviembre, Belgrano, Martín M. de G?emes and José Hernández (the latter three are considered informal settlements); and Jorge Newbery (also an informal settlement) along Chu Creek, affecting 13,650 people, i.e. around 11 per cent of the total population. Basic services such as power, telephony, internet and water were partially interrupted for some 36 hours (completely in affected neighbourhoods), and some stretches of National Routes 8 and 9 (the main access roads to Pergamino) were blocked completely by flooding, making it difficult to mobilize assistance from outside of the city. More than 3,400 homes have been flooded (between 30 and 220 cm of water), forcing families to leave their homes as access is only possible by boat or some 4-wheel drive vehicles. According to Civil Defence reports, around 50 residents have refused to self-evacuate or be evacuated and remain on the roofs of their homes, and approximately 250 are being housed in four collective centres. At the family / individual level, in addition to some medical emergencies and health complications associated with the emergency (injuries, blood pressure issues, etc.), families have reported the loss of household items (furniture, appliances, household goods, bedding, etc.) and sanitation issues such as garbage, waterlogged structures, vermin, vectors. These issues have been exacerbated by the meteorological conditions that are typical for this time of year, such as mean temperatures above 24? C (with highs above 32? C), high humidity, unstable weather conditions and the pre-existing pollution of the Pergamino Stream. In addition to partial structural damage to dwellings and some public buildings (Primary Health Care Centres [CAPS] in G?emes and José Hernández neighbourhoods), the blocks adjacent to the Pergamino Stream have large amounts of accumulated debris and waste, which have been hard to remove because of the difficulty in accessing these streets. While the city does have a Local Response Plan, it failed to fully anticipate the storm's effects, catching a great number of families by surprise in their homes. On 25 December, the city formally declared a state alert, including a health alert, due to the level of impact suffered. In Cordoba Province, the strong storm that hit the area on 26 December caused damage to electrical and water services and forced 100 people to evacuate in Jovita. Twelve homes were damaged by hail, and electrical services were interrupted in La Cumbre and in La Falda due to high winds that damaged lamp posts. Six neighbourhoods suffered damage in Villa Dolores, 50 people had to self-evacuate and there were blocked roads and fallen lamp posts; additionally, the storm interrupted electrical and water services in Villa Giardini, Rio Ceballos, Salsipuedes, Agua de Oro, Jesús María and Colonia Caroya. More than 200 people in Santa Fe Province were forced to evacuate. The cities of Rosario and Alvarez were the most affected, as overflowing channels left half of the city cut off and hindered the evacuation efforts. Provincial authorities reported up to one metre of water in dwellings, including the Volunteer Fire Department facilities, which had to be evacuated as well. The National Society is coordinating state assistance in the form of mattresses, blankets, food, bags and tarps; relevant Ministry of Health agencies are working on site.

DR-2016-000118-KEN Drought Kenya Available secondary source documents analyzed indicate that food security situation is wanting in 19 arid and semi-arid counties in the country. There are indications that the situation is likely to worsen further by January 2017. During the long rains season between March and May 2016, there was heavy flooding of River Tana, which washed away crops and delayed planting amongst the communities living along the river in Garissa and Tana River, resulting in reduced household level food security and dietary intake. Farming communities in marginal agricultural areas continue to have typically low income due to the recent below average agricultural season. As the lean season progresses these communities will continue to rely on the markets for food access. Short rains are the primary production season in these areas, it is expected that poor performance is likely to exacerbate household acute food insecurity with more households moving to even crisis levels.  
FL-2016-000117-ALB Flood Albania Since 7 November 2016, heavy rainfall affected Albania, especially the northern regions of the country. River flows have been rapidly increasing and worsened by illegal constructions next to river basins causing streams of water to descend into towns. The heavy rainfall has made the water levels of the Drini and Mat rivers which feed five hydroelectricity power lakes built on the rivers (Fierza, Koman, Vau i Dejes, Ulza and Shkopet). Authorities have been obliged to open the emergency gates to release the water from the lakes. The rain is nevertheless falling and the flooding is spreading to the Southern region ( Vlora and Fier areas) with the water level of the Vjosa River rising. In these areas 25 houses have been affected and the families have been evacuated from their homes.

FL-2016-000114-EGY Flood Egypt Heavy rains over the past few days have resulted in flooding parts of Upper Egypt and the Red Sea coast, affecting the governorates of South Sinai, Red Sea, Sohag, and Ismailiya. According to official estimates as of 29.10.16, 26 people have been killed and 72 injured as a result of intense flooding and related hazards. The torrential rains, which began late on Wednesday, coupled with exceptionally high winds, have forced the authorities to shut four sea ports in Suez and Port Said provinces and to close some schools and main roads. Heavy rains are forecast to continue into early next week. Upper Egypt and Red Sea mountainous regions, impoverished areas with poor infrastructure, receive torrential downpours annually in late October and early November. 
DR-2016-000113-KEN Drought Kenya Most ASAL counties are experiencing some degree of drought stress as the dry season draws to a close. Areas in the south-east and the coast are the most affected since they received below-average rainfall during the long rains season. One county (Kilifi) is in the alarm drought phase, while all others are in alert or normal, with a generally worsening trend. In parts of Kilifi, Garissa, Lamu, Kwale, Taita Taveta, Tana River, Makueni, Kajiado, Narok and Marsabit there are now significant shortages of pasture and water, and in some cases livestock mortality. The food insecurity situation is exacerbated by conflict in some counties, the most serious case in the previous month (September) being along the borders of Isiolo and Garissa where pastoralists' convergence is common. The prospects for the coming months will be determined by the onset and performance of the short rains season. If the season is below average, as currently forecast, or its onset is late, then the drought situation will become significantly worse, with impacts on health and nutrition, household purchasing power, and security. The implications of a poor season are particularly worrying for the marginal agricultural counties which are short rains-dependent. The NDMA in collaboration with county governments and other stakeholders has activated drought contingency plans in seven counties and is supporting all counties to coordinate their response and plan for a possible La Niña event.

DR-2016-000048-TMP Drought East Timor Due to the current El Niño effect, Timor Leste's annual rainy/wet season (which normally lasts from December to March) has been low - and delayed in some areas - leading to drought conditions in many parts of the country. A rapid assessment conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) estimates that at least 120,000 people have been severely affected across five districts (Baucau, Covalima, Lautem, Oecusse and Viqueque), with 45.9 per cent of households across the country likely to experience food insecurity from April to June. In addition to its effects on food security, the situation has resulted in water shortages and directly affected the livelihoods of thousands of people, especially rural and agriculture-dependent populations. Some communities that are experiencing sporadic rainfall are able to replant short-duration crops (as part of the second cropping period). However, the effects of El Niño are largely affecting communities that are more reliant on livestock and single-season farming. The loss of livestock for many translates to the loss of their ?banked? wealth and will have an impact on the ability of such households to send their children to school and to pay other household expenses. Since livestock is also used for tilling the land, loss in livestock will make it harder for farmers to prepare their land for replanting.

OT-2016-000005-LSO Other Lesotho Lesotho last had normal rainfall between April and May 2015. This made it difficult for Basotho (Lesotho people) to be engaged in winter ploughing due to scarce moisture. The first rains were expected between August, September, October and November, but in vain it is reported that vegetation conditions experienced in November 2015 were at their lowest in 15 years. According to the December 2015 FEWSNET report the strong El Niño event enhanced probabilities of below-normal rainfall and continued dry conditions in Southern Africa. Lesotho`s onset of rains was delayed by 30-40 days affecting land preparation and other agricultural activities. Of the few people who managed to plant their fields, the crops are dying off due to this prolonged dry spell. These conditions have also negatively affected livestock conditions due to poor pastures and limited availability of water. The prolonged dry spells and drought not only affected maize production but other crops such as sorghum, beans, peas and wheat have also been affected, and harvests are down and low yields are therefore expected. The drought situation resulted in a 51% cereal deficit of the required 247,000 metric tonnes. Out of 10 districts the 5 hard to reach districts in Lesotho are the most affected including Qacha's Nek, Mokhotlong, Thaba Tseka, Quthing and Mafeteng.

EP-2015-000178-CAF Epidemic Central African Republic On 4 December 2015, two children aged 9 and 5 from a hunter family in Lengo village, 15 kilometres from Bakouma in the Mbomou Province, eastern Central African Republic (CAR), were taken to the Bakouma health Centre suffering from unidentified disease with rashes all over their bodies. On the 10 December 2015, in response to the outbreak in Bangassou, the WHO facilitated an initial assessment carried out by the Ministry of Health (MoH) in the affected province and a joint mission was undertaken by the health district and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Belgium. On 17 December 2015, the children were later transferred to the Bangassou Regional hospital run by an international non-governmental organization (NGO) and MSF. While at the hospital, the children's condition got worse. As such, samples were taken and sent to the Pasteur Institute of Bangui for Laboratory test. On the 29 December 2015, following the testing of samples and diagnosis, the Minister of Health declared a Monkey-pox epidemic outbreak and requested World Health Organization (WHO)'s support in carrying out further analysis and immediate response.  
OT-2015-000177-HTI Other Haiti Over the past two decades, Haiti has registered collective deportations of tens of thousands of Haitian migrants, most during election periods. An agreement on a repatriation mechanisms protocol was signed in 1999 between the Dominican Republic and Haiti; however, it was never implemented. A review of this protocol has been requested by the Haitian government. In the current environment, it is imperative that steps be considered in order to manage all cases that correspond to the three categories of people identified as migrants and their descendants under Dominican law as: - Group A: People born to foreign parents in the Dominican Republic and recorded in the civil status registries and members of their families; - Group B: Those born in the Dominican Republic, but who have never been recorded in the civil status registries; There is a third category, which consists of economic migrants in irregular situations: - Group C: Immigrants in the Dominican Republic in irregular situations (mostly Haitian) are estimated at over 300,000 people, with around 250,000 who do not have documentation. Currently, there are operations to deport irregular migrants operations (from 500 to 1,000 per week according to information gathered from civil society organizations present at the border), and the deportations are mostly outside of any established repatriation mechanism between the two countries. According to the reports, in addition to the four official border crossings, hundreds of illegal crossing points are used, making the process of identification and the provision of assistance to affected populations very difficult. The Haitian government considers the risks associated with mass deportations as high, with the possibility of spontaneous movements of population on both sides of the border, accompanied by acts of violence or riots.

OT-2015-000148-IDN Other Indonesia Forest and land fires which occurred in some of the islands of Borneo (Kalimantan) and Sumatra resulted in a very dense haze, with conditions on the round getting more and more serious. The Centre for Health Crisis of Ministry of Health (CHC/MOH) reported that the forest fire which caused this haze started on 1 March 2015 in Riau Province. By now the affected area spread into six other provinces, four in kalimantan (West, East, South and Central Kalimantan) and three in Sumatra Island (Jambi, Riau and South Sumatera). In the last few weeks, the haze has also affected neighbouring countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The intensification of this disaster is the consequence of El Nino in the region, with severe droughts and significant delay of the rainy season, therefore preventing the effect of the rain on forest fires. BMKG (National Meteorological, Climatology and Geophysics Agency) recorded the number of hotspots as 1,200 points spread in Sumatra and Borneo (where Kalimantan region is located). On the island of Sumatra, there are 771 hotspots spread across several provinces, including Bengkulu (33 points), Jambi (99 points), Bangka Belitung (41 points), Lampung (42 points), Riau (28 points), West Sumatra (8 points), and South Sumatra with 530 points.

OT-2013-000150-ZWE Other Zimbabwe According to the 2013 Zimbabwe Vulnerability Assessment Committee (ZIMVAC) report produced in May, the 2013/ 2014 consumption year is projected to have 2.2 million people, representing 25% of rural households that are to be food insecure at the peak of the hunger period in March 2014. This is a 32% increase compared with the immediate previous year. A total of 319,244 metric tonnes will be required to cover the cereal deficit that the country is facing. The figures documented by the ZIMVAC assessment are primarily rural households and do not include the urban households. As has become a trend in food insecurity, the severely affected provinces in terms of percentage of food insecure population are; Matebeleland North (40%), Matebeleland South (32%), Masvingo (32%) and Midlands (30%). Post-harvest losses account to 20-30% of grain losses. Below is a table highlighting the most affected provinces and districts. Late onset of rainfall, pro-longed dry spells and erratic rainfall coupled with limited access to inputs account for the poor performance of the 2012/13 agricultural season. The ZIMVAC report also notes that levels of child severe acute malnutrition exceed the globally accepted rates (4.7% compared to the global rate of 2%). Zimbabwe Red Cross has decided to target Gwanda district which has a population of 112,267. The district was targeted because there is no other organisation responding to acute food insecurity in the district. There are 24 operational wards with a total of 26,773 households.

Compared to last year, particularly affected is the production of key food and cash crops such as rice (-74%), millet (-54%) and groundnut (-64%). This reduces the availability and access of food at household level, thereby increasing the lean period from the normal two month period up to 8 months according to the post harvest assessment report. Of the 39 rural districts affected, 19 are considered the hardest hit by crop failure with a total population of 428,000, including 73,802 children under the age of 5. 177,000 of the hardest hit are at the borderline meaning they have already started using some coping mechanisms such as reducing number of meals from 3 to 1 meal per day and/or sending some members of family to relatives to reduce the burden

TC-2012-000044-FJI Tropical Cyclone Fiji Ferocious rains brought on by tropical depression TD17F caused flooding in most parts of Fiji, worsening states that were still revcoering from the Jan/Feb 2012 floods. The tropical storm, which has already killed four people in Fiji, with three young boys missing at sea, has been upgraded to a cyclone Daphene as of today. The western division is the worst affected, particularly the main cities of Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Tabua, Ba and Rakiraki, all of which have been flooded up to two meters of water in places. Water and electricity supplies are disrupted in the western division, affecting approximately 150,000 people.

AC-2011-000158-NZL Tech. Disaster New Zealand On Wednesday, a stranded cargo ship, the Rena, had run aground after an oil spill on the Astrolable Reef off port Tarunga, New Zealand. The Maritime New Zealand estimates 350 tonnes of oil leaked from the Rena, and it is believed the ship had 1,900 tonnes of oil and diesel on-board. Despite an International salvage response to refloat the vessel the situation has worsened over the past few days due to the adverse weather conditions.

OT-2010-000255-CIV Other Cote d'Ivoire The political stalemate in the West Africa?s nation of C?te d?Ivoire since the re-run of the presidential election was conducted on 28 November 2010 has been posing humanitarian concerns not only in C?te d?Ivoire but in the region as well. The country?s Independent Electoral Commission had declared the opposition candidate Alassane Ouatarra the winner of the run off on 2 December 2010 but was overturned by the country?s Constitutional Council which announced the incumbent President Gbagbo the winner though the international community including the UN recognized the victory of the opposition candidate. Since the two opposing candidates have taken oaths of office in different locations on 4 December 2010 and forming parallel governments in C?te d?Ivoire, there have been protests in the country even before and after the presidential election run-off. The situation has affected movement of people and goods within the country thereby leading to increase in cost of living as prices of food ingredients have soared. The fear of violence has also led to the movement of some people into neighbouring Liberia and Guinea Conakry. An estimated 4,000 people had entered Liberia with new arrivals reported in villages along the border at a rate now of around 150 people per day. Meanwhile in Guinea, the number of newly registered Ivorian refugees in the southeast of the country is stable at some 186 people. As the political solution is being sought to the stalemate, there is the fear of increased population movement from C?te d?Ivoire into Guinea, Liberia as well as Burkina Faso, Ghana and Mali to some extent in the coming days and this may lead to humanitarian needs in these countries.
