On 29 June 2015, PHAP hosted a live online briefing and consultation event on the topic of “Migrants in Crisis." Supporting the World Humanitarian Summit consultations, the event is organized in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the NGO Committee on Migration. In crisis situations around the world, we need to more effectively prepare for and respond to the particular circumstances of migrants affected by or trapped in crises – leveraging their resourcefulness and networks while preserving their rights. The World Humanitarian Summit consultation process and associated initiatives provide a timely and inclusive platform to understand and address this phenomenon in a holistic manner. This event aims to stimulate discussion, raise awareness, and provide an impetus for action in this area. This event featured presentations by IOM’s Director of Operations and Emergencies, Mr. Mohammed Abdiker, and the International Catholic Migration Commission’s (ICMC) Head of Policy, Mr. John Bingham, addressing how the World Humanitarian Summit must give due consideration to the plight of migrants caught in crisis situations, and commit to the meaningful inclusion of migrants into the humanitarian architecture. The event was moderated by Ms. Angharad Laing, Executive Director of the International Association of Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection.

The women and girls leave the main United Nations camp for displaced people during the day. The men do not. To exit is to risk death, they say. Whether true or not, such claims show the level of fear that pulses through the main UN camp for internally displaced people here two weeks after violence broke out in the capital and a spiralling series of ethnically-based attacks coursed through the nation, killing at least 1,000 people. Some 25,000 people live in two hastily arranged camps in Juba, South Sudan's capital, and nearly 40,000 are in camps elsewhere in the country. The government says those in the camps - who are mostly from the Nuer tribe - can leave and will be perfectly safe. The men here do not believe it. "They (the United Nations) have to transfer us to a different place," said Jackson Liem, businessman from Juba. "Within this compound we will be killed by these people." These people, in this case, are members of the Dinka, the majority tribe from which President Salva Kiir hails. In this camp the Nuer, South Sudan's second largest tribe, feel part of a targeted minority after former Vice President Riek Machar, a Nuer, was accused of a coup attempt on December 15th and fighting - often ethnically motivated - broke out. Although the violence here in Juba has largely quieted down, rebels control the oil city of Bentiu, and Bor remains under threat of attack from Nuer youth, though the government on Sunday said most of a column of 25,000 men marching on Bor have disbanded and returned home. The Juba camp numbers swell at night, the facility's leaders say. Women and children may go out during the day to buy food. They return when the sun sets. The camp is a UN military and logistics hub where man of the Nuer in Juba rushed for safety. Makeshift tents are constructed out of towels, sheets and sticks. Wet clothes are draped on barbed wire fence. People sitting in plastic chairs sell pastries, water and a charge for a mobile phone. Dishes are rinsed in tubs of mud-brown sludge. Camouflaged military planes land at the airport runway only a football field distance away. At the medical aid tent run by Doctors Without Borders, medics treat diarrhoea and severe dehydration. It's a sign people don't have access to safe water. The camp's population density is much too high, a doctor at the camp said. The aid group is not providing psychological service but the camp needs them, she said. Alongside the refugees are the UN military. White tanks manned by blue-helmeted Japanese drive through the camp's main thoroughfare. Rwandan, Indian and Bangladeshi troops are also here. Just down the road from the camp is the office for Dar Petroleum, one of the companies pumping oil out of the ground near the South Sudan-Sudan border.

The UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen says the conflict has left hospitals, schools, and other essential services almost completely broken. McGoldrick said it is difficult to carry out evacuations and assessments of the humanitarian situation because of the crisis. The Food and Agriculture Organization has already voiced alarm over the dire food security situation in Yemen amid relentless Saudi attacks. It said around 14.4 million Yemenis, urgently need food security and livelihood assistance. Yemen is under a de facto blockade of Saudi Arabia, which is hampering shipment of food, medicine, and other basic needs.
