On 26 December, all evacuated people could return to their homes. In addition, pupils, students and workers were instructed to stay at home on 25 and 26 December, and provincial authorities near the shoreline banned all fishing vessels to go out to sea.

Viet Nam: Flooding Response Plan (Dec 2017-Nov 2018)

 

Typhoon Damrey made landfall on 4 November, causing flooding that affected 15 provinces in Central Viet Nam creating acute water,
sanitation, shelter, and food emergency needs. More than 4.33 million people were affected at the peak of the floods, with almost 400,000 people in need of immediate humanitarian assistance from national and international partners.

As a result of the typhoon, 107 people were killed. Serious infrastructure damage was reported in all 15 affected provinces; more than 305,000 houses were damaged, including 3,500 homes that were completely destroyed. Following the typhoon, 50,000 households are in urgent need of food assistance, and 100,000 households have lost their livelihoods. More than 125,000 hectares of rice and vegetables were destroyed and aquaculture in Viet Nam was severely affected, with 133,000 hectares of shrimp farms flooded and over 70,000 aquaculture cages swept away. The provinces affected by Typhoon Damrey have been affected by a series of storms since 2016, weakening household coping capacities as their productive assets have been lost. The Government of Viet Nam estimates the economic loss to be US$630.5 million.

At the end of November, the UN in Viet Nam estimated that approx. US$54 million humanitarian funding is required for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security and livelihoods, and shelter activities. While relief operations have begun, additional financial support will be vital to address short, medium and long-term needs to help communities recover from the storm and floods, and strengthen the resilience of affected communities.

Trừng phạt khắc nghiệt đối với trẻ em vi phạm pháp luật không ngăn chặn được tình hình tội phạm người chưa thành niên tiếp tục gia tăng

Độ tuổi chịu trách nhiệm hình sự của trẻ em là một chủ đề gây nhiều tranh cãi trên thế giới. Ở Việt Nam, vấn đề này đang được tranh luận trong quá trình sửa đổi bổ sung Bộ Luật Hình sự. Một số người tranh luận rằng phương thức tiếp cận "cứng rắn với tội phạm" là cần thiết để trừng phạt trẻ em nhằm phòng ngừa tình trạng phạm tội tiếp diễn.

Tuy nhiên, nghiên cứu quốc tế chỉ ra rằng do trẻ em còn đang trong giai đoạn phát triển, việc gán cho trẻ em và đối xử với trẻ em như những tội phạm ở độ tuổi nhỏ có thể tác động tiêu cực nghiêm trọng đến sự phát triển và khả năng cải tạo, phục hồi thành công của trẻ.

Thông điệp của Tổng Thư Ký LHQ Ban Ki-moon nhân Ngày thế giới phòng chống AIDS, 1 tháng 12

 

Ngày hôm nay, 35 năm sau khi AIDS xuất hiện, toàn thế giới đã có thể tự hào khi nhìn lại các nỗ lực phòng chống dịch. Nhưng chúng ta cũng phải hướng về phía trước với quyết tâm và cam kết chấm dứt dịch AIDS vào năm 2030.

Thế giới đã đạt được những bước tiến thực sự to lớn. Số người được điều trị HIV đã tăng cao hơn bao giờ hết. Kể từ năm 2010, số trẻ em bị nhiễm HIV do lây truyền từ mẹ đã giảm một nửa. Cứ mỗi năm số người tử vong do AIDS lại giảm thêm. Và những người nhiễm HIV đang ngày càng có tuổi thọ dài hơn.
