Lutheran World Relief News
Lutheran World Relief recently released a 2015 “Early Warning Forecast” of regions to watch and why. The regions highlighted in the report are
ones LWR is actively monitoring.
Many of these regions are also places where, with
your support, LWR is already in-country, working to help communities mitigate
the worst effects of potential crises by developing disaster response plans and strengthening resilience, especially in the most vulnerable rural areas.
Here’s where we’re
·Indonesia, where more than a third of the population (76+ million people) depends
on agriculture for income, which could be destroyed by coastal flooding due to
rising sea-waters, land-damaging earthquakes or another tsunami.
·Nepal, where are melting glacial ice in the Himalayas, causing increased
downstream flooding and deforestation is also raising the risk and potential
effects of flash floods and landslides.
·Philippines, whose people are coping with the effects of three major storms in as
·Iraq*, where armed conflict has escalated significantly with the rise of
ISIS, displacing more than 2 million people and putting more than 5 million in
need of humanitarian assistance to access such basic services as water and
·Central America (Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua), where there have been two
consecutive years of poor harvests due to rain irregularity, drought and leaf
·Colombia where the issue of land rights for displaced farmers remains a key
trigger point for human rights and economic justice.
·Sahel region (Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger) where the cumulative effect of repeated
food and humanitarian crises, coupled with changing weather patterns has left
more than 18 million people at risk of hunger.
·South Sudan where tens of thousands of people have died and 1.9 million have been
displaced since conflict broke out in December 2013
