The topics: Chun Jie Kuai Le! Happy Lunar New Year. I am pleased to send you my warmest greetings as we begin the Year of the Tiger. The tiger denotes strength, vitality, courage, tenacity, and boldness. These are qualities we need as we face the unprecedented challenges of the day. I thank China and the Chinese people for your commitment to multilateralism and to the United Nations. I count on your continuous support and cooperation to advance Our Common Agenda and to realize our shared hopes for a peaceful and sustainable future. To do that, we must take concrete action to address real issues in front of us such as climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we must recover and build forward better. Soon, I will attend the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics. The Olympic spirit shines as a beacon to human solidarity and I look forward to safe and successful Games. As the Lunar New Year begins, I wish you and your families prosperity, health and happiness in the Year of the Tiger. Xie Xie! Thank You!

Holocaust Remembrance, Central Sahel & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (27 January 2022)


The United Nations of Earth reporting on this issue: "Holocaust Remembrance, Central Sahel & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (27 January 2022)"
The topics: Noon briefing by Stephen Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Holocaust Remembrance - Central Sahel - Ethiopia - Tonga - Mozambique - Syria - Finance for Nature - Hunger Hotspots Report - Honour Roll HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE The Secretary-General just spoke virtually at the UN Memorial Ceremony marking the International Day for Holocaust remembrance. He said that if we were to observe a minute of silence for each victim, that silence would last more than eleven years. Our first task, Mr. Guterres said, is to remember those who perished – the six million Jews, the Roma, the Sinti, the LGBTQ communities plus, people with disabilities, and countless others. He said that we remember the desperate pleas of Jews and others to the international community and the shameful silence that met those pleas. The Secretary-General added that what we see today must worry us – and jolt us into action: A resurgence of Holocaust denial. Attempts to rewrite history. Efforts to whitewash and rehabilitate people who committed crimes against humanity. He said that we should not exaggerate the echoes of the 1930s, but neither should we be deaf to their eerie resonance today. Michelle Bachelet, who also issued a message, saying that our actions in remembrance of the victims of humanity's worst crimes carry with them the seeds of healing and unity – the realization that we are one humanity, equal in dignity and rights. CENTRAL SAHEL At a virtual meeting on the Sahel region, Martin Griffiths, the Emergency Relief Coordinator for the United Nations, said that nearly 15 million people in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso will need humanitarian assistance this year. This is four million more than one year ago. Driving this growing humanitarian crisis, Mr. Griffiths said, is a confluence of factors, including conflict and political instability, the pandemic, climate change, and the lack of sustainable development opportunities. To make real progress, he called for a greater focus on resilience, sustainable solutions, and cooperation across the humanitarian and development sectors, as well as peace sector. The humanitarian community will need close to US$2 billion for the humanitarian response in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso this year. Last year, humanitarian organizations reached more than 7 million people in the region and raised US$700 million in funding, but the needs are growing faster than available resources. ETHIOPIA In northern Ethiopia, more people are fleeing their homes due to continued fighting around the town of Abala in Afar province, near the boundary with Tigray province. The clashes are also preventing the delivery of assistance by the only available route into Tigray, with no supplies having arrived there since mid-December. In Tigray, the UN, along with its humanitarian partners, have been forced to scale back even more operations due to the severe shortages of supplies, the shortage of fuel and cash. Aid organizations have warned that operations could cease completely by the end of February. Nutrition supplies for supplementary feeding and treatment of severe acute malnutrition have already run out. As mentioned yesterday, 3.5 metric tonnes of medicine were flown into Mekelle by the UN Humanitarian Air Service, on behalf of an NGO partner. The fighting in Afar has reportedly led to tens of thousands of men, women and children being displaced in the last few weeks. These people urgently need food, emergency shelter, water and sanitation, and access to medical services. Aid continues to be scaled up in areas of Amhara and Afar which are accessible. More than 523,000 people received food in Amhara in the past week, with some 3.2 million men, women and children, having been reached with food assistance since last October. In Afar province, nearly 380,000 people have been reached in this current round of food distributions.

Sudan, Myanmar, Covid-19/WHO, & other topics - Daily Briefing (26 January 2022) | United Nations


The United Nations of Earth reporting on this issue: "Sudan, Myanmar, Covid-19/WHO, & other topics - Daily Briefing (26 January 2022) | United Nations"
The topics: Noon briefing by Stephen Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Ethiopia - Yemen - Libya - Sudan - Solomon Islands - Myanmar - Venezuelan Refugees - Shipwreck/English Channel - Covid-19/World Health Organization SUDAN The UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) said yesterday that it is gravely concerned by the significant rise in tribal and intercommunal violence, which has resulted in the loss of civilian lives and livelihoods, most recently in North Darfur and West Darfur. The UN Mission welcomes initial efforts reportedly taken by local authorities to respond to the situation and calls on regional and national authorities to immediately step-up efforts to de-escalate tensions, investigate the recent incidents, and prevent further violence. It stresses that the persistent insecurity in Darfur underscores the need for the Government and armed groups that have signed up to the Juba Peace Agreement to prioritize the protection of civilians in Darfur. UNITAMS reminds the Sudanese authorities’ that their responsibility to protect civilians is not diminished despite the current political situation. MYANMAR In a joint statement marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women yesterday and the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and UN Women in Myanmar called for greater action to ensure the protection of women and girls and to increase the availability and accessibility of quality, multi-sectoral services, including health care, justice, safety, protection and social services for survivors, regardless of the political and security situation. In Myanmar, this requires support for the many civil society organizations – women civil society organizations and health civil society organizations in particular – who are running prevention programming and delivering services day in and day out in often incredibly complex circumstances. Myanmar’s continuing state of emergency following the military takeover of 1 February or COVID-19 restriction measures are not an excuse for violence against women and girls, UNFPA and UN Women said. In times of crises such as humanitarian crisis, conflicts, climate disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic, the prevalence of gender-based violence increases. A new report from UN Women, based on data from 13 countries, shows that 2 in 3 women reported that they or a woman they know experienced some form of violence during the pandemic. COVID-19/WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION The World Health Organization (WHO) is convening a virtual meeting with experts around the world on the recently reported COVID-19 variant, B 1.1.529. WHO anticipates it will take a few weeks to understand what the variant means and how it might impact diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines. Later today, the WHO will announce whether the variant will be classified as one of interest or of concern. WHO stresses the need for more people, everywhere, to be vaccinated.
