Malawi 2005 Flash Appeal

30 August 2005

This is not a typical United Nations (UN) Flash Appeal. It is a ‘smart Appeal’, requesting international support for the Government of Malawi’s (GoM) leadership in addressing both immediate humanitarian needs, and to allow the Government to take action now to minimise the likelihood of another food-shortage driven humanitarian crisis next year.

Consolidated Appeal for Nepal 2005-2006

Kathmandu
3 October 2005

Since the Communist Party of Nepal/Maoist [CPN (Maoist)] started its ‘people’s war’ in 1996, more than 12,000 people have been killed and many tens of thousands forced to leave their homes.  Although Nepal is not currently facing a humanitarian crisis in the classic understanding of the term, the worsening situation is giving rise to serious humanitarian and human rights concerns.
