  • 77.Bangladesh (New York)

    CPPF convened an expert brainstorming session on Bangladesh at the request of the UN DPA. The meeting sought to examine the current political context and human rights climate, particularly in light of an increasingly narrow political space, rise of extremism and targeted attacks on minority communities, secular media and civil society representatives. Participants also analyzed the economic situation and politicization of the business community, and the role of the UN and international community in addressing the current crisis. Taking these developments into account, the meeting sought to enhance the UN’s understanding of the dynamics in Bangladesh to prevent conflict and avoid a further deteriorating political situation.

  • 82.The Humanitarian Implications of Non-Conventional Violence in the Northern Triangle of Central America and Mexico (Report)

    CPPF’s Sabrina Stein and consultant Colin Walch (Uppsala University) drafted the report titled “The Humanitarian Implications of Non-Conventional Violence in the Northern Triangle of Central America and Mexico” (in Spanish). The report, produced at the request of OCHA’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (ROLAC), examines how the endemic levels of violence in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico impact vulnerable populations differently, what have been the challenges for the humanitarian community in providing assistance to these groups, and provides a series of recommendations to better address the humanitarian needs in the region. While the body of the report focuses on the humanitarian aspects of this violence, the annexes present an in-depth examination of the context and dynamics where this violence is taking place.
