Monthly risk briefing: June
15 July 2019
The monthly risk briefing provides information on global weather, human and health events where members may consider using the Start Fund Anticipation process.
The monthly risk briefing reports on new, emerging or deteriorating situations; therefore, ongoing events that are considered to be unchanged are not featured and risks that are beyond the scope and scale of the Start Fund are also not featured. It is collated by the Start Network Anticipation team using information from academia and research institutes, government departments, ACAPS, global risk indexes, risk information provided by Start Members and their partners, and the media. Key risks are shared and collated each month with FOREWARN input.
What is high priority this month?
Escalating violence in Niger: Increased violence in north-western and central Nigeria is driving protection risks, internal and cross-border displacement into Niger. In addition, according to IOM, as the rainy season starts, a total of 41 camps hosting more than 300,000 IDPs are considered prone to flooding
Escalating violence and food insecurity in Sudan: On June 3, demonstrations were violently dispersed by security forces, reportedly killing 128 people and injuring 700 across 13 cities. FEWSNET notes that during the June to September lean season in Sudan, food security outcomes are expected to further deteriorate.
