Con el fin de hacer el seguimiento a las acciones encaminadas a la respuesta y a la recuperación del municipio de El Castillo, Meta, y Fundación, Magdalena, la UNGRD realizó la inspección a estas zonas del país.

El Castillo, Meta​ ​

En cabeza del Director de la UNGRD, Carlos Iván Márquez Pérez, en el municipio de El Castillo, Meta se llevó a cabo reunión del Consejo Municipal de Gestión del Riesgo, en donde se concluyó:

  • Se continúa con las evaluaciones de los acueductos veredales y del acueducto del municipio para adelantar obras de recuperación para el retorno a la normalidad en la línea de agua y saneamiento básico.

  • Se adelanta la consolidación del censo de afectación de las familias. A la fecha se han entregado 1.000 Ayudas Humanitarias de Emergencias –AHE- relativas a kits alimentarios, kits noche, kits aseo y kits cocina.

  • Por otra parte como una de las acciones a nivel intersectorial, se debe consolidar el censo agropecuario para que de la mano con el Ministerio de Agricultura se determinen los apoyos que se le darán a este sector, que se afectó tras la inundación del pasado fin de semana.

  • Es de resaltar la solidaridad de los ciudadanos de los diferentes municipios del departamento del Meta con donaciones para la comunidad de El Castillo. Sin embargo, el gobierno nacional hace un llamado para que se abstengan de realizar donaciones de cualquier tipo por razones de salubridad y manejo en el caso de los alimentos. La UNGRD garantiza las asistencia humanitaria al 100% para las comunidades afectadas.

  • Con el Banco de Maquinaria para la Gestión del Riesgo y con maquinaria adicional suministrada por la UNGRD se adelantan las obras de recuperación del puente sobre el rio La Cal y de vías interveredales en este sector del municipio del Meta. Fundación, Magdalena

Cerca de 4.380 mil Ayudas Humanitarias de Emergencia entrega la administración municipal de Fundación, con el apoyo del Sistema Nacional de Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, bajo la coordinación de la Unidad Nacional para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, tras el desbordamiento del río Fundación.

Las acciones que se vienen desarrollando con apoyo de La Cruz Roja, Defensa Civil, Cuerpo de Bomberos, Ejército Nacional, Policía Nacional, Alcaldía Municipal, y el Consejo Departamental de Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, han arrojado la entrega de 3.491 kits reflejadas en hamacas, elementos de aseo, alimentos y sábanas a igual número de familias que resultaron afectadas por la inundación.

Adicional a esto como compromiso de la Unidad Nacional para la Gestión del Riesgo se viene trabajando en:

  • Dragado del río Fundación, adicionalmente hay unos cuerpos de agua caño Riíto y arroyo Pequeño (6 de enero) que llevan aguas lluvias y que cruzan el casco urbano y que con las fuertes lluvias generan afectación a las viviendas.

  • Mientras bajan los niveles y entra la época de menos lluvias, la maquinaria amarilla efectuará trabajos de mantenimiento y limpieza sobre estos cauces tributarios con el fin de mejorar su capacidad hidráulica y que puedan soportar los aguaceros.

  • Se espera que en diciembre se puedan ejecutar los trabajos de dragado iniciales con el fin de mitigar el riesgo en el municipio.

  • La maquinaria disponible corresponde a dos excavadoras (peso de 21 toneladas) que trabaja sobre el caño el Riíto; otra de la misma referencia sobre el arroyo Pequeño (6 de enero) y adicionalmente un retrocargador o pajarita apoyando las labores en las zonas rurales donde se presentaron afectaciones sobre las vías que permiten la productividad de la región.

Colombia: FARC to free Colombian general, others next week

20:54 GMT

FARC guerrillas warned Sunday that increased military activity was jeopardizing the release of a Colombian general and other captives they have taken.

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia said they may no longer release the general due to military actions in the Choco region where General Ruben Alzate was taken.

Troop deployments, aircraft overflights and movement-restricting security measures have brought life in the jungle region to a standstill.

"These communities have been practically besieged by the army," the FARC said in statement from its delegation in Havana.

As long as the military maintains a heavy presence in the jungle, Alzate and other soldiers are unlikely to be freed, the guerrilla group said.

The FARC also holds two soldiers captured near the Venezuela border.

Alzate was kidnapped November 16 in the remote Choco region, sending into disarray peace talks aimed at ending Latin America's longest-running insurgency.

The 50-year struggle has claimed more than 220,000 lives.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos suspended the two-year peace negotiations after the kidnapping.

The government has arranged for the general's release, along with the freedom of a corporal and an adviser with whom he was kidnapped.

The FARC called for a reduction in military operations before freeing the general, and the Red Cross has been asked to assist in the handover.

Slow start to seasonal rainfall continues in Angola and Zambia, dryness remains in Somalia, Kenya, and Tanzania

  1. Low and poorly distributed seasonal Deyr rains have led to growing moisture deficits and deteriorating ground conditions throughout several local areas of southern Somalia, eastern Kenya, and coastal Tanzania. The persistence of below-average rainfall in November is likely to reduce crop growth and limit the regeneration of pasture.

  2. Since late September, erratic and poorly distributed rainfall has led to large moisture deficits in northern Angola. The early season dryness follows drought conditions during last year’s rainy season, which may further worsen ground conditions.

  3. Several weeks of infrequent and below-average rainfall has led to unusual early season dryness in parts of southern DRC and northern Zambia.

  4. Below-average and erratic rainfall across parts of southern Côte d’Ivoire and southern Ghana during October have led to increasing dryness.
