Humanitarian Spotlight:
Increased Violence in the Central African Republic
Prompts Warnings of Genocide

The Central African Republic, with a population of 5.16 million (2013 est.), is a landlocked nation burdened by a long history of conflict and political instability, particularly since March when a coalition of rebel groups overthrew President Francois Bozize.

Since the rebels assumed power, violence has intensified between the Muslim rebels and the majority Christian population, leading the country into a state of near-anarchy. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius warned in an interview that the nation is “on the verge of genocide.”

The U.S. State Department estimates that nearly 400,000 people have been internally displaced and 68,000 have fled to neighboring countries since the uprising in March. The U.N. Deputy Secretary-General, Jan Eliasson, says a third of the population are "in dire need of food, protection, health care, water, sanitation and shelter." Instability has forced 70 percent of the nation's children out of education and UNICEF estimates that there are now 6,000 child soldiers in CAR, more than twice the previous number before the conflict intensified.

Today, Jan Eliasson urged decisive action from the Security Council and the international community to support the African Union-led peace operation until a U.N. peacekeeping operation could take over. Heightened security concerns, revealed by the recently imposed countrywide curfew, threaten the efforts of aid agencies to reach the most vulnerable.

Health care in danger: From consultation to implementation

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), together with the Conflict and Catastrophes Forum of the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) and the British Red Cross will host an expert conference in London on 3 December, 2013.

In response to this critical problem, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) project 'Health Care in Danger', has undertaken expert consultations around the world to highlight steps that can be taken to address the issue.

At this expert conference hosted by the ICRC, Royal Society of Medicine and the British Red Cross, experts and practitioners from the health and humanitarian sectors will reflect on practical steps that can be taken to implement recommendations on the ground. In addition best practices will be highlighted and shared, that contribute to the protection of healthcare when violence erupts. Presentations at this event will be on the record, however discussion will take place under the Chatham House rule.

Combating Poverty: Foreign Aid, Good Governance and Economic Growth

Daniel Runde, Director of the Project on Prosperity and Development at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will argue that, as developing countries continue to democratize and improve their governance, foreign aid donors should shift their focus from meeting basic needs to broader institutional development.

Drawing on his new CSIS report Combating Global Poverty: Investing in the Governance and Growth Nexus, he will contend that the best way to continue to reduce global poverty is to focus on improving the rule of law and economic performance at the country level.

The panel will discuss what this means for the post-2015 development agenda and how foreign aid donors should programme resources and assistance in the future.
