|Comment on Eritrean-Ethiopian Border Crossing at Um-Hajar Closed by Mez Cache Translate Page Web Page Cache||Dear Amanuel H,
Sorry for being late on the follow up of my part.
I have to admit, you got me on my weak side; When I say pia and co. are evolved and mature, I have really nothing to show something yet--as far as internal politics is concerned.
My logic of thought is as follows:
1) after the independance the relationship with a) tplf specially, b) Ethiopia in general were very important factors in shaping various Eritrean policies,
2) Ethiopia was all the time heavily dependant on Asab, and also Massawa for commerce and logistics. And now too is.
3) the 1998/2000 war heavily reshaped the power configuration in Eritrea by creating an internal crisis. It badly damaged pfdj, created the foundation for one man government on Eritrea.
4) if you see the current peace engagement closely, it can't coexist with the policies and practices inside eritrea like underpaid labour, bidding system, court arbitration, labour mobility, fiscal /business practices to mention few.
5) my pivotal point is: most existing internal policies of the government in Asmara are in direct conflict with the intent and spirit of the peace process with Ethiopia. Now a) if the Eritrean government really mean peace, then every one knows he most likely has to follow approximately a similar path to pmaaa; b) if it mean a facade decoration, then we have to be ready for a violent political earthquake down the road--within a year or two.
6) in addition to the above, one may want to account the regional and global factors and trends too. At least China's fdi and the military bases in Djibouti.

|Yemen: Regular Press Briefing by the Information Service, 7 August 2018 - Yemen Cache Translate Page Web Page Cache|
Source: UN Department of Public Information
Country: Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, World, Yemen
Tarik Jasarevic of the World Health Organization, updating on what Dr. Salama said on oral cholera vaccination in three districts in Yemen last Friday, said very preliminarily, as they still expected full figures to come, in the first two days, more than 3,000 local health workers had reached more than 200,000 people wither oral cholera vaccine in the three districts. These three districts had been chosen because they were assessed to be the most vulnerable to an escalation of cholera. The figures for the third day of the campaign, yesterday, were now being collected. Oral cholera vaccination normally involved two doses, with the second dose being administered in about six weeks. Some 32 tonnes of vaccines came from the Global Oral Cholera Vaccine stockpile, funded by GAVI, had reached Sanaa in mid-July in response to Yemen facing the worse cholera outbreak with more than 1.1 million cases and more than 2,000 deaths. They wanted to pre-empt a possible new wave to cholera. In response to a question, Mr. Jasarevic said he did not have information on the military situation but the fact was that vaccination teams went into these three districts and administered the vaccinations.
Joel Millman of the International Organization for Migration said that yesterday, IOM and partners launched a regional migrant response plan for the Horn of Africa and Yemen, through which they are appealing to the international community for $ 45 million to support migrants on the move in the Horn of Africa and Yemen from 2018 to 2020. The response plan, developed in coordination with regional and country level non-governmental and intergovernmental partners, was a migrant-focused humanitarian and development strategy for vulnerable migrants from the Horn of Africa, specifically those from Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia, moving to and from Yemen. The plan targeted some 81,000 persons.
Irregular migration from the Horn of Africa to the Gulf countries had been steadily increasing over the past few years, with approximately 100,000 people entering Yemen, a major transit point on this route, in 2017. The plan estimated that, like in 2017, up to 100,000 new arrivals from the Horn of Africa would reach Yemen in 2018, while 200,000 migrants and refugees would return from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Yemen to the Horn of Africa countries in the same period. Of these, 150,000 and 50,000 would return to Ethiopia and Somalia, respectively. This issue involved displacement and the conflict in Yemen itself, but also parallel and somewhat related programmes of encouraging citizens of those two nations to come home from Saudi Arabia. Over the weekend, Mr. Millman said IOM assisted both Ethiopian and Somali refugees leaving Yemen to go home, 132 Ethiopian migrants left from Hodeidah and 116 Somalis left from Aden. There were more statistics in the notes.
William Spindler of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said there had been another movement of 160 Somali refugees who travelled by boat from Aden on Sunday and arrived yesterday in Somalia. This was the latest assisted spontaneous return facilitated by UNHCR, in cooperation with IOM and the authorities of both Yemen and Somalia. With this group, the number of refugees to have returned to Somalia since the programme started in 2017 had surpassed 2,000. So far this year, 1,321 Somalis, including the 116 who left on Sunday, had returned to their places of origin in Somalia. For the past two months, weather conditions had prevented the boats from sailing. Among the refugees were female heads of household looking forward to joining their extended families. Several students were hoping to resume their education. The assisted spontaneous return programme was initiated in 2017 in response to the demand from refugees for UNHCR help in returning home. Yemen currently hosted 270,000 refugees, the vast majority of whom were Somalis. The ongoing conflict in Yemen has affected not just Yemenis but also refugees living among them. There were more details in the briefing notes.

Country: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Colombia, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Myanmar, Niger, Nigeria, occupied Palestinian territory, Pakistan, Philippines, Senegal, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, Turkey, Ukraine, World, Yemen
Funding Required: $25.41B
People in need: 134.0M
As of the end of July 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$25.41 billion to assist 95.8 billion people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The 21 HRPs and the Syria 3RP were funded at $9.52 billion: 37 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. Humanitarian organisations still require $16.02 billion to meet the needs covered by these plans.
Requirements are $2 billion higher than last year at the same time. Overall coverage is also slightly higher (three per cent), with $1.4 billion more received this year than last.
Between 1 January and 31 July 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $333 million through the Central Emergency Response Fund, including $233 million through the rapid response window and $100 million through the underfunded emergencies window. In July, $24 million was approved in rapid response grants to respond to displacement in Ethiopia, population movement from Venezuela into Colombia, worsening food insecurity in Niger, and a volcanic eruption in Guatemala. The largest allocation was $15 million to provide relief items, safe water, sanitation facilities, and health and nutrition treatment to 800,000 people displaced by inter-communal violence in Gedeo and West Guji in Ethiopia.
Between 1 January and 6 August 2018, 17 country-based pooled funds (CBPF) received $536 million in contributions from 30 donors (including $80 million in pledges). During this period, $369 million were allocated to a total of 663 humanitarian projects, implemented by 443 partners, with the funds in Yemen ($92 million), DRC ($36 million) and Iraq ($34 million) allocating the largest amounts. During July, the funds in Afghanistan, Jordan, Nigeria, South Sudan and Turkey were processing allocations. As for overall CBPF allocations, 58 per cent were disbursed to NGOs, including 19 per cent ($71 million) directly to national and local NGOs. Another 41 per cent ($150 million) was allocated to UN agencies and 1 per cent of funding was allocated to Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations.
Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Some 22.2 million people – about 75 per cent of the population – require humanitarian assistance or protection. This includes 8.4 million people who do not know where their next meal is coming from. An unprecedented outbreak of cholera and acute watery diarrhoea has resulted in more than 1.1 million cases since April 2017. Escalating conflict in Hudaydah has displaced more than 350,000 people since 1 June. More than 90 per cent of these people have received emergency relief packages distributed by humanitarian partners. Sustained hostilities in Hudaydah city, interruptions to port operations or a siege would be catastrophic and must be avoided. Humanitarian programmes have expanded significantly across Yemen. In June, partners provided emergency food assistance to 7.5 million people – an increase of 200,000 people since January. Similar increases have occurred in other sectors. As of mid-year, about 60 per cent of people targeted with assistance had been reached. Generous and flexible funding has been key. Donors have provided more than 60 per cent of the HRP’s $3 billion requirements – including an early, unearmarked $930 million contribution from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Partners recently sequenced the HRP to show first-line, second-line and full response activities, and require full funding to deliver all programmes based on this plan.
Needs remain high in Ethiopia with 7.88 million people food insecure, as per the Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP) released in March. There has been a major surge in displacement since the beginning of June around Gedeo (SNNPR) and West Guji (Oromia) zones resulting in the release of a response plan which seeks $117.7m to assist the 818,250 recently displaced people. Some funding has already been mobilized by Government and partners, primarily through reallocating resources that were originally intended for important response elsewhere in the country under the HDRP.
Fighting in south-west Syria continued to impact hundreds of thousands of civilians, with 180,000 people remaining newly displaced as of the end of July. Aerial bombardment and artillery shelling resulted in civilian deaths and destruction of civilian infrastructure in many areas. Humanitarian workers and service providers were caught up in the violence, with many displaced alongside other civilians. Humanitarian response continued in Dar’a governorate, building on cross-border prepositioning and subsequently drawing on programming from inside Syria. However more than 100,000 newly displaced people remained largely cut off from sustained assistance in Quneitra governorate. Partners identified priority requirements of $85 million to cover the most urgent protection and assistance needs of 300,000 people across the south-west up until mid-October. Concerns also persist around the threat of further military escalation in the north-west of the country, where the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance in Aleppo and Idleb governorates had increased by close to 600,000 by mid-year, to a total of 4.2 million, of whom half were in acute need. Response across the north-west continues to depend on cross-border assistance delivered from Turkey.
At least 3.4 million people in Cameroon need humanitarian assistance and protection. Six out of ten regions are affected by humanitarian crises related to Boko Haram in the Far North, the conflict in the Central African Republic and the worsening situation in the Anglophone regions. Further, growing levels of food insecurity and malnutrition are affecting over 2.6 million people, including 1.5 million children, and there is an ongoing cholera outbreak in the Center and North regions. The 2018 HRP calls for $319.7 million but is only 23 per cent funded. Additional donor support is critical to ensure life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable populations, especially the newly displaced persons in the Far North and the South-West.
Although the number of IDPs in the Central African Republic (CAR) fell to 608,000 during June, a seven per cent decrease compared to May, this does not indicate an improvement of the situation. The tensions and armed violence that erupted in April continue, and are causing new displacements in areas with very limited access. More than half (354,017) of the IDPs are staying with host families, while some 249,522 are in IDP sites and settlements, and another 4,489 are scattered in the bush, in desperate need of assistance. Increasing insecurity is affecting the delivery of aid, as five humanitarian workers have been killed since the beginning of 2018, making CAR one of the most dangerous countries in the world for the delivery of humanitarian aid. Moreover, underfunding remains one of the biggest impediments to stepping up the humanitarian response. At mid-year, the 2018 HRP had only received 26 per cent of its $515.6 million requirement. Without additional funding, humanitarian actors will be unable to address the needs of 1.9 million people targeted in the Plan.
The Marawi Conflict Response and Resources Overview (Mindanao, Philippines) seeks $61 million to provide essential services, food security, protection, livelihood and early recovery support for 199,000 conflict-affected people in Mindanao, of whom 69,412 are still displaced, from July 2017 to December 2018. While an organized return is underway, the majority of those who were forced to flee during the conflict will continue to require humanitarian assistance until sustainable recovery activities are underway, especially for those from the most affected areas of the city. Some $11 million (18%) has been received to-date.
Afghanistan is in the midst of a drought, the scale of which has not been seen since 2011. It has already resulted in some 84,000 people being displaced to Hirat City in western Afghanistan, with up to 150,000 at risk of being displaced. In 2017, wheat production was at an all-time low (57 per cent under the five-year average) and the expected shortfall in production in 2018 is decreasing further -- from 4.2 million metric tonnes to 3.5 million metric tonnes. This decrease is impacting some two million already food insecure people across two thirds of Afghanistan. The ongoing drought led the Humanitarian Country Team to increase the Afghanistan 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan requirements by $117 million, for a total of $547 million. The HRP is currently only 29 per cent funded. Additional funding is required to provide food security, agriculture, water, sanitation, hygiene and nutritional support. The humanitarian community is currently conducting a multi-sectoral humanitarian-development assessment, led by OCHA and UNDP, to examine both humanitarian needs and the wider, long-term complexities underpinning the drought crisis, that would need structural support through development programming.
Four years of conflict have put a tremendous strain on the civilian population in eastern Ukraine. Disrupted access to critical facilities and diminished livelihoods mean that some 3.4 million people are without basic supplies and services and need assistance for protection and survival. Some 200,000 people live under constant fear of shelling every day. One and a half million Ukrainians have been displaced across the country and cannot return home due to hostilities or lost livelihoods. Over 1 million civilians cross the “contact line” every month through operational checkpoints, which lack required shade, cooling spaces and healthcare facilities. Under these conditions, coupled with prolonged waiting hours and summer heat, civilians—many of them elderly—suffer health-related complications. Funding for the Humanitarian Response Plan is urgently needed, as only 27 per cent of the required $187 million has been received so far to respond to the urgent needs of 2.3 million vulnerable Ukrainians with assistance and protection throughout 2018.
Haiti is well into the hurricane season and increased international support for emergency preparedness efforts is required. Haitians are still recovering from consecutive natural disasters, including a major earthquake, hurricanes, floods and drought, and need sustained support. This support is not only to obtain life’s basic necessities, but also to move beyond recurring disasters and build sustainable livelihoods and live in resilient communities that are prepared for future shocks. Humanitarian actors aim to provide humanitarian assistance and protection services to the 2.2 million most vulnerable Haitians, but they have received only 9 per cent of the required $252 million this year.
