09/03/2016 - The inadequate water supply and sanitation infrastructure in Cuamba and Lichinga in northern Mozambique accounts for the majority of incidences of water-borne diseases and environmental degradation in Niassa Province.

The African Development Bank’s response was to provide an African Development Fund loan of US $27.7 million to rehabilitate and expand the water and sanitation infrastructure in both cities for the benefit of more than 250,000 people.

25/07/2013 - Côte d’Ivoire’s political crisis in 2001 worsened the humanitarian situation in the country and gender-based violence (GBV) grew to affect 67% of women. Sexual violence was used as a weapon of war and GBV survivors had to grapple with various almost insurmountable challenges, including a) the physical and psychological traumas and other medical conditions; b) a lack of judicial systems leaving crimes unpunished; c) the lack the financial resources to cover the high cost of medical certificates, psychologists’ fees and prescription drugs; d) security system’s failure to protect survivors, discouraging many victims to come forward and seek assistance.

20/05/2013 - Marrakech, samedi 16 mars 2013, 9h20 du matin. C’est le calme plat à la gare de Marrakech. Même les panneaux indicateurs, où s’affichent les nombreuses destinations au départ et à l’arrivée du terminus, semblent au repos. Mais, moins d’une heure plus tard, les lieux sont arrachés à leur douce léthargie, avec l’entrée en gare d’un train et son flot de passagers qui se déverse sur les quais.
