The United Nations of Earth reporting on this issue: "Myanmar, Syria, Hunger & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (30 July 2021)"
The topics: Noon briefing by Eri Kaneko, Associate Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Highlights: - Ethiopia - Afghanistan - Afghanistan/Humanitarian Assistance - Libya - Yemen - Syria - Myanmar - The Philippines - Brazil/COVID-19 - Hunger - World Day Against Trafficking In Persons - Trafficking \ Sahel And East Africa - International Day Of Friendship Myanmar From Myanmar, the UN country team there continues to call for the protection of civilians, as reports of breaches of human rights continue, including extrajudicial killings, arbitrary detention, torture, ill treatment, and enforced disappearances. Since the military takeover nearly six months ago, the violence carried out by security forces has left at least 930 civilians dead, including women and children, and thousands more people injured. The UN in Myanmar calls for accountability to bring the perpetrators to justice. Syria In Syria, the UN is very concerned about reports of civilian casualties and displacement due to hostilities in Dara’a Al Balad and the risk of further escalation.  The UN is monitoring the situation with concern, including reports of a period of relative calm today as discussions to reach a local agreement were underway. But the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has documented the death of eight civilians, including a woman and four children, with another six civilians, including two children, wounded between the 27th and the 29th of July. The UN has also confirmed the displacement of 2,500 people due to violence and insecurity over the last 72 hours, and we have received reports of the displacement of over 10,000 people. UN and humanitarian partners are working to scale up the humanitarian response to people in need in Dara’a Al Balad and in the areas of temporary displacement. We reiterate the Secretary-General’s call for a nationwide ceasefire and urge all parties to de-escalate the situation and ensure the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure, in line with their obligations under international humanitarian law. The UN further calls upon parties to ensure safe, sustained, and unimpeded access to all in need.

World Day against Trafficking in Persons - Ghada Waly (UNODC) | 30 July | United Nations


The United Nations of Earth reporting on this issue: "World Day against Trafficking in Persons - Ghada Waly (UNODC) | 30 July | United Nations"
The topics: On World Day against Trafficking in Persons, UNODC Executive Director Ghada Waly highlights that each and every victim of trafficking in persons has a story we should listen to: “Victims’ voices are key to preventing trafficking, supporting survivors, and bringing perpetrators to justice”. "Each and every victim of trafficking in persons has a story we should listen to. Victims’ voices are key to preventing trafficking, supporting survivors, and bringing perpetrators to justice. Traffickers choose their victims from among the vulnerable, exploiting desperation and lack of awareness. The majority of those targeted are people in economic need who are misled. Almost two-thirds of detected victims are women and girls, and the share of children has tripled in the last 15 years. But despite their real and perceived vulnerabilities, survivors of trafficking are examples of strength, courage, and resilience.    On this year’s World Day against Trafficking in Persons, I salute victims as they rebuild their own lives and help protect those of others. The UN Office on Drugs and Crime has launched a campaign titled ‘Victims’ Voices Lead the Way’ to put a spotlight on victims’ untold stories, and on their roles in the fight against trafficking. Member States must engage, listen, and learn from survivors, and support victim-led organizations. The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened vulnerabilities to trafficking, making victims’ contributions more critical than ever.  At UNODC, we continue to assist countries and all stakeholders in implementing the Trafficking in Persons Protocol, and in developing victim-centred approaches. Through the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons, we also provide essential support to victims, and help empower them as part of the response. I thank our partners who have contributed to the Fund and call on all Member States to support it.  I also call on you to join our campaign, and to share and amplify victims’ stories. Inspired and guided by the resilience of those who survived, we can build the resilience of our societies to trafficking in persons, help prevent and alleviate suffering, end impunity, and achieve justice".

Ethiopia, Mali, Benin/COVID-19 & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (29 July 2021)


The United Nations of Earth reporting on this issue: "Ethiopia, Mali, Benin/COVID-19 & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (29 July 2021)"
The topics: Noon briefing by Eri Kaneko, Associate Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Highlights: - Ethiopia - Under-Secretary-General’s Travels - Security Council - Mali - Benin/Covid-19 - Education - Apostolis Ethiopia The Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Martin Griffiths, started a six-day mission to Ethiopia today. Mr. Griffiths said that it was important to him that his first official mission in his new role be to Ethiopia, where humanitarian needs have increased this year due to armed conflicts in Tigray and Benishangul-Gumuz, as well as intercommunal violence in parts of Afar, Somali and SNNP regions, and drought in Somali, Oromia and Afar regions. He said that these shocks come on top of existing challenges associated with floods, the desert locust infestation, chronic food insecurity and the COVID-19 pandemic. During his visit, Mr. Griffiths is expected to meet with high-level Government officials and representatives of the humanitarian and donor communities. He said he looks forward to constructive discussions on scaling up the humanitarian response across the country. He plans to travel to Tigray to hear from civilians affected by the conflict and to witness first-hand the challenges that aid workers face. An estimated 5.2 million people – which is about 90 per cent of the population – need humanitarian assistance in the Tigray region. Mr. Griffiths also plans to meet with Amhara regional authorities in Bahir Dar city. We will keep you updated on Mr. Griffiths’ mission. Mali The UN Mission in Mali reports that yesterday, peacekeepers repelled two attacks targeting its patrols. The first took place in Kidal. An armoured vehicle was damaged but there were no casualties. The second attack happened north of Douentza, in the Mopti Region, in an area where peacekeepers had defused an improvised explosive device earlier in the day. In the past three weeks, there have been 15 attacks against peacekeepers in Mali, including 11 that involved improvised explosive devices. Fifteen Mission staff were injured in these attacks, which also caused extensive material damage. Despite these challenges, the Mission remains committed to carrying out its mandate and reiterated its support for the full implementation of the Peace agreement. Benin/COVID-19 On Monday, Benin received more than 300,000 doses of vaccines through COVAX. These vaccines will be used at 115 vaccination sites across the country. The UN team, led by Resident Coordinator Salvator Niyonzima, is ramping up its support for the ongoing vaccination campaign. The World Health Organization has been supporting health authorities with surveillance of the virus, epidemiological investigation, case management, and risk communication and community engagement. For its part, UNICEF is working with partners to transport and distribute the vaccines. The UN has been working to raise awareness of the vaccination campaign and is disseminating messages through text messaging. We are also working with authorities to manage rumours and misinformation.
