A fairly modest crop after a busy week:
- Oxfam’s turn to ring the alarm on the numerous risks entailed by Southern Sudan’s upcoming referendum …
- … and to promote reconstruction of the agricultural sector in Haiti in a new briefing paper.
- UNHCR comments on how protracted conflict situations are creating a ‘new global refugee’ population.
- FAO and WFP comment on how protracted crises involving chronic hunger and food insecurity affect twenty-two countries worldwide “due to a combination of natural disasters, conflict and weak institutions”.
