This is what we're talking about. How many people are you helping. And how many people are in need at this moment in the ground south of madagascar grants would gas in december. We supported five. Hundred thousand people almost half a million. We need to scale up to at least nine hundred thousand adults. They one point three million that are in dire need at this moment. Who are the most in need. The most need basically the poorest of the poor those people that in fact they have sometimes they produce small harvests but having been able to produce due to the lack of water. An incredible sunday's storms. That have hit this year. The harvest has been buried under sand. Basically if you want a picture and those ones also who migrate to cities to look for labor due to covid nineteen having been able to find any labor anywhere even in the fields or even in the city's so basically the situation is much worse than what we have seen in decades. Would we are talking now in the past. We've reported on the situation amount and recently we were hearing that people were forced to scavenge for cactus leaves cactus pears and eating leaves with some salt and some sugar. I mean this is just nowhere to live. Why can we not get in there immediately and do more to behind as we have been doing more we. The government will bank agencies.

It has been bedtime this year. Let me yes report. But we are not doing enough. We have to also do much more. We have to help the people to get much more resilient in these very difficult climate change times where we know will never rain enough in south of madagascar so with much more. It's great to hear about the resilience building and certainly there seems to be more awareness that southern africa madagascar is at more risk of climate shocks. So is that how the humanitarian approach is changing is to promote resilience by getting the communities. Involved is what we call.

Nobel Peace Prize recognition is an amazing day, saysUN food agency

"The announcement that the UN. World. Food program or W P as one the twenty twenty Nobel Peace Prize is being described as an amazing day for its workers in the field. Put their lives on the line to help at risk communities. That's the message from Matthew Lyndale head of the agency's South Sudan operation in these interview with your. News Johnson. He's been explaining how the one thousand in two hundred strong humanitarian team there has been helping communities hit by the worst flooding in decades ongoing violence. So we're thrilled today to have received the Nobel Peace Prize for Twenty Twenty there are a thousand, two, hundred, and fifty will food program start working in south Sudan. Relieve your hunger for and feed more than five million people a year and clearly south Sudan for the World Food Program is one of the most complex operations. A country that's face decades of violence. But it's also having to Manage Economic Downturn Cove nineteen locust infestation more violence which continues persistently and now more recently floods have affected more than eight hundred, thousand people. So for all of WFP in south Sudan a country where we were very hard to to demonstrate the link between violence and hunger and try and stop that link rake that that relationship so that we can actually change people's lives for the better future for us. This is just an amazing day. It is certainly excellent use agency for the more than twelve hundred workers on the ground. You say, maybe you could give me some insight into what they're doing not just in terms of the emergency following the devastating flooding that had which has been the worst in decades. I remember you briefing is just a couple of weeks ago on this, but also in terms of the development projects on the ground to help. Resilience for these communities can go home. So in South Sudan Kaley, there is a massive emergency failure of work given the enormity of the food insecurity problem that the country faces and only in the last five years we faced thirty one pockets of famine. It gives you an idea about how significant the problem is here, but it's not the only problem that we need to face and it's not an emergency response is not the only tool. In all too. But obviously what we're also trying to tune in south Sudan is really the poster child for bringing Emergency Response Development activities and this building activities together as warm and part of that obviously is to change the fundamental problems that are faced by so many south Sydney citizen's issues of isolation, the issues of inequality and yet criti- and marginalization all of which creates the breeding ground or conflict and violence. So through our programs where we`re Supporting rural farmers to be more productive to have enough food for their own communities. But more importantly to create a surplus that they can trade with other communities to link those communities together to link farmer's markets and other markets and thereby creating a positive relationship across ethnic divides US Mutiti divides. Can Act they bring people together these. These that we want to invest more. Easily. Recognized I think in this these fries today and it's not just south Saddam redoing these things but also fundamentally desperately trying to show but those that would manipulate burst the time and have manipulated in the past I held accountable so that this change in south Sudan, it's a country that frankly we've been in for fifty years too long and we aim to make sure that we are not needed in this country. We've talked to make those linkages between development aid and is go and obviously we wish you very best to that and your teams in very difficult circumstances millions have been experiencing displacement and conflicts just last week the Human Rights Council highlighted a report that talked about the use of starvation. As a weapon of war, we've heard even worse than that soldiers being offered the chance to rape women in communities in you of payment I mean, you just can't imagine the kind of conditions. But when you go into a community with the WFP Bana, what is it that the agency brings? What is the agency's added value? So in South Sudan because we've built relationships with communities of the decades of presence here because we are, you know twelve hundred plus strong organization with presence across ten states and a deep relationship with the communities we serve where known entity and we have the logistics tools in our toolbox to be able to access areas. We the helicopters, planes, all-terrain vehicles, canoes, bogs, boats you. We have an enduring sir. We're able to meet people's needs when they're the worst, but we're also able to support organizations other organizations as well as community leaders themselves to make a difference in their communities. So what we are. From perspective able to do is anyone really Priam? Times as a facilitator to bring you a organizations to bring communities together that typically have had problems coming together in this country since twenty eleven since its independence country who vicious periods of civil war and has persistent national conflict local conflict walk WFP has is now trying to do is trying to ensure that our food security presence. Can Be used by other partners because we in this on our own to really facilitate a change in this environment, a fundamental change in what is causing an enabling violence to contain one

"This is Matt Wells at US News. Well if you're an avid follower of curve in nineteen developments you may have wondered what the phrase PCR equipment means. Well it stands for polymerase chain reaction which is the process that labs use to check with someone with cub in nineteen symptoms has the new current a virus after taking a medical swap usually from both nostrils in line with World Health Organization voice to countries to test as many cases of suspected. Infection is possible the race is on to find enough. Pc MACHINES FOR EVERYBODY. And that's where poll molinaro comes in. He's the cool calm collected head of the -gistically the WHO which with other EU partners is part of a major new initiative to help kit out one hundred and thirty five countries trying to see off the pandemic. He's been talking to you and uses Daniel Johnson. So right now. It's trying to get US access to products that are in extremely short supply because of very high demand and be able to get access to those markets collectively on behalf of lowering committing come countries a quiet financed by and move those things to a platform from which we can deliver via aircraft managed by. W and others to the countries where those things are needed. How many countries are we talking about so it depends on the type of on what product I think unless count where anywhere between one hundred twenty one hundred thirty five. We all know that. There's massive demand and not enough supply for face masks gloves. But what's the other equipment that you really trying to get hold of in? Massive numbers diagnostic tests different types of high throughput automated or manual. Pr Systems is critical then in biomedical. It's mainly around provisions of oxygen so oxygen concentrator 's oxygen manufacturing machines ventilators CPAP machines oxygen giving set any sort of mass. That go with it. So it's the PCP around the protection for the health workers lab workers. It's the diagnostics to be able to identify intest who is infected and then for those unfortunate enough to hit the clinical frontline. Is the equipment needed to treat them? And where exactly is it going to go first? How do you prioritize need well? It's difficult so we have developed a model based on epidemiology based on a number of inputs that we make for each country on the attack rate that they're currently facing how many cases they have and then from that we get an estimation of how many bed spaces they would need if they were moving to a clinical environment and that also putting in terms of what other percentages of mild severe severe critical cases that we're experiencing averaged out so it is a little bit of a and had to be done with modeling at the same time. We have a matrix. Who is issued an updates regularly on the various risks and vulnerabilities of countries? Of course we also compare that to current case count and the rate of spread in each country to try and get a sense of where we should be going. I and with numbers. And let's just talk about demand for second you were saying in an earlier press conference that demand is one hundred to two times above normal totally unprecedented stuff. So is this a significant enough measure bringing together enough you and agencies and Non Union partners to make a real difference. Well it's what we can do. So certainly we start off with bringing our partners into the shop and coordinating and working with them in terms of trying to bring together the volumes and the financing that we can collectively get hold off and then approach markets which we have. I mean different. Entities have different experience in different markets. So we try and use what we're strong collectively at. And that I think just gives us a more coordinated approach again beginning off on those elements we work closely with so assist the UN agencies and then some of our larger NGO partners which have long term standing relationship and organizations like the Global Fund and financing institutions like the World Bank like Bill Melinda Gates Foundation to be able to frontload or bridge financing for us to acquire some of these quantities. But with the best will in the world when border start closing and country start hanging onto the food end-equipment that they need to withstand this cove in nineteen new corona virus pandemic. How do you overcome those barriers? And the concern I have is that the World Food Program said that does delays at the borders yourself mentioned that to UNICEF macy's some difficulties in distributing vital vaccines so. What's the prognosis. Wants the outlet? It's difficult and it is a big challenge. Now what we do is we do have a long track. Record of being able to circumvent some of these bottlenecks where humanitarian and disaster. The districts professionals. It's not new to us. It's something we do as bread and butter and we'll continue to do so now with the infrastructure and assets we put in place managed by WFP. That's another partner that we've worked with a lot in the past to to reach areas that are difficult to reach and then around the difficulties with I mean. Who has country representation across the globe so does UNICEF so does the U N D peace within entire UNC system? There are ways that we can advocate within certain governments. And if you see some of these export restrictions doing clued generally provision for exemption for humanitarian and medical movement. It's not always easy to navigate the exemption and it takes persistence and you do have to jump through hoops but again. Persistence is something where we do. Where you sit and so we push forward that way now where we get availability we will. We'll address any issues we we don't face it in all the old country. We do get specific exemptions that negotiated and we do see movements it could be more and certainly will continue pushing for that again with access to a schedule sort of cargo facility provided by WIP and with the know how that collectively we have as you and agencies and NGOs. We can circumvent this. And I guess very last question to you. There's reports that air travel is going to cost fifty percent more now presumably. That will have the same sort of knock on impact on your work. So how will you manage to keep the show going if you like? Well I think when it comes to putting back the passenger networks online. Obviously they're not gonNA be able to fill their planes with people so certain even when we're planning for the WFP passenger service you know. They're not going to be able to have a complete fool plane. I mean especially not at the beginning that going to need to be distant so any airline company is going to have to factor that in now will that same price go onto the freight animal of that that goes underneath the plane. Maybe it will be cheaper. You're not actually loading many twenty or thirty kilos sets of luggage into the hold. Maybe frees up some capacity full cargo on some of these things. One never knows certainly when we were trying to find. F. Rate from China when Chinese manufacturing was down it was very cheap when Chinese manufacturing came back online. It becomes more expensive. It's just the nature of supply and demand over capacity and under-capacity so as these airlines come online maybe a freight we'll get cheaper on certain routes certain segments. Maybe it's going to get more expensive. So sometimes these things can be a bit hard to predict certainly living in a topsy turvy world at the beginning. When a lot of countries were sending support to China every into China was expensive. Now it's the other way round coming back gone up.

Coronavirus crisis could double number of people suffering acute hunger - UN

"More than a quarter of a billion people could suffer from acute by the end of twenty twenty because of the impact of the new corona virus. Pandemic that's according to the World Food Programme. Wfp and other UN agencies. Which on Tuesday warned that caveat nineteen could almost double the number of people who are already critically hungry now in fifty five countries according to the global report on food crises produced by WFP and fifteen other humanitarian and development partners. Seventy five million children were stunted and seventy million suffered from wasting in two thousand. Nineteen the forecast. It's spike in the number of people at particular risk of curve in nineteen relates to one hundred and eighty three million people who were found to be on the cusp of acute hunger last year faced with the new corona virus. They're unlikely to withstand the shock to their food insecurity. The report suggests regionally more than half of the one hundred thirty five million people covered by the report are in Africa. Forty three million live in the Middle East and Asia eighteen and a half million from Latin America and the Caribbean. The key reasons for food insecurity are conflict where the extremes and economic turbulence in order of severity the ten worst food crises last year Yemen the Democratic Republic of the Congo Afghanistan Venezuela Ethiopia South Sudan Syria Sudan northern and Haiti together they constituted eighty eight million acutely food insecure people and accounted for sixty five percent of all people in acute need

Behind the scenes at the humanitarian air hub dispatching COVID-19 aid to African nations

"Face mosques a million of them just some of the precious cargo being dispatched to all corners of Africa by the UN as the continent braces for the spread of cove in nineteen managing. This huge task is Amanda Dowdy Senior Director of Operations for the World Food Program will WFP in online interview with you. An uses Daniel Johnson Jordanian national. Mr Dodie takes us behind the scenes at the agency's humanitarian hub in the European capital. Addis Ababa where a U N Wide Supply Chain. Operation is now in full swing. The flights game some came from China on some came from Dubai. It was a combined shipment of Jack Ma Foundation and who own supplies? They arrived in Addis on Tuesday and from there we are moving only consignments to almost fifty countries across Africa so far we have moved up to thirty countries and every day we are completing that consignment right so on the ground then from Addis Ababa. You've reached around thirty countries as you say what's the the final figure Africa now if we African country which ones have called for help. And how is the decision taken about which ones are helped look going to all the African countries in accordance with ovulation in accordance with needs? But the most in need are where the number of cases are flaring up. We have cases in west Africa in Senegal as well as in southern Africa and flights. Today just give me a picture of actually what's happening on the ground in Addis at the humanitarian hub. Everything is working. We allocate the basically parcel or or kit the cargo in accordance to fly throughout that we have so the lanes will depart at this angle to multiple countries. Come back and pick up again. Another would go to multiple vendors. Of course we're using several airplanes in order to reach a maximum. I think today the plan is for thirty countries to receive the locations today and what particular protocols are in place to prevent caveat nineteen transmission. We follow all the procedures in terms of the guidelines of w the national health guidelines. That are in place the social distancing but we also are in a way in even when we transfer Scott Every manager in place including spraying the planes in short that there is no cross contamination even from parcells coming so we follow according to a yet according to Keio we are abiding by these owes to the letter in terms of what happened today when it reaches the country in question. How is the aid distributed? And how you show that. It's getting to where it needs to go. It's the handed over to the Ministry of of the Spectrum Authority of the member states. It's not exactly going to UN agencies or NGOs this is going to member states and the government authorities W in coordination with the local government authorities ensures that all the aid or assistance in terms of medical supplies goes to work. It is neat. Could you say this is an historic sort of arrangement to show solidarity in terms of keeping supply chains going because the secretary general has expressed a lot of concern about global supply chains when code actually hits because yes African countries that have been affected already? But it's really nothing compared with what is going to happen. This was the first flight from Addis. Ababa it was the first test for the international hub as transshipment on to the rest of Africa but also in terms of passenger because as part of our response to call with is a neighboring humanitarian and the health responding to reach the countries. And we are going to be using episode for establishing passenger service again to East Africa would be establishing multiple bessinger services. Because as you know commercial air traffic is moralists suspended so we will be establishing these passenger services to ensure that responders humanitarian workers and all the personnel needed to mitigate a fight. This virus can arrive in countries where they need to and they can also leave where they need to go so we are enabling the humanitarian and responds. To be able to mitigate against this virus. This is Africa. Were talking about. So how is the World Food Program helping places like Yemen? Syria Wall Art of the hub. Will also be providing. It's not only for Africa. It we will be using part of the others as well or Yemen for example but this is not the only in Africa we would have one enact ca one in this above and one in South Africa we have a hop ensue bank in Malaysia for Asia and we have a hump in Dubai for the Middle East. And we have a hub in Panama for Latin American for Central America. So these are all going to be coming online as we speak and they would serve as the respective regions both in terms of cargo as well as in terms of personnel the eventual aim is to help ninety five countries in total all. Actually probably it's GONNA reach almost Henry Than Twenty affected countries so we have the capacity to scale up as needed of course if the funding is provided of course and. How much funding do you need? You're asking what three hundred fifty million dollars. How much do you have so far? We entered sixty was initial request. Now we are revising these figures depending on the data that we are getting supplies. As the sourcing and manufacturing increases we will be increasing our air assets in order to make sure that the supplies getting time to the affected countries enter the countries that needs.

Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs

"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.

Recurring Human Rights Violations in South Sudan

"The people of South Sudan have been deliberately starved in different parts of the country for ethnic and political reasons and sexual violence against women and men as a weapon of war has been ongoing. That's according to investigators appointed by the Human Rights Council who said on Thursday that South Sudan's leaders have been oblivious to the suffering of civilians. They've warned of conflict and terrible rights violations in large swathes of territory as a new deadline approaches for the formation of a unity government. After years of conflict has professor Andrew Clapham member of the Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan the fact of destruction of crops or taking away possibility of access to water through the halls. And so on that can constitute the war crime of starvation because your intention is to starve the civilian population the fact that nobody has yet starved to death all that it hasn't reached a critical level in the WFP or follow criteria is confusing. But it's not essential for our work of prosecuting starvation. The point is that there's an intentional use of this method of warfare against the civilian population. In this case by both sides we've documented in the commission's report which will be presented to the Human Rights Council on the night the March both the government and armed groups are said to have pursued starvation policies. In whoa and Unity State's massive corruption which is siphoned off. Millions of dollars from the National Revenue Authority may also amount to economic crimes by senior government officials.
