Overview

14/05/2019

The South Thailand Insurgency has been ongoing, mainly in the southern provinces of Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat, since 1948. The conflict resulted in decades of low-level violence before reaching a peak between 2004 and 2015, with several insurgent groups launching attacks against security forces and civilians, followed by a decrease in attacks over the past few years.  ?

In addition, along the border of Thailand, over 97,000 refugees from Myanmar are staying in nine camps. Most camps were established in 1997, following the arrival of thousands of Myanmar refugees fleeing armed conflict and persecution. ?

There is no crisis severity score for the country level crisis due to the lack of available data.

Since 29 August, flooding caused by two consecutive tropical storms, Podul and Kajiki, has severely impacted Thailand’s northern and northeastern regions. In total, 32 provinces have flooded, nearly 4,000 homes and 450 schools have been damaged or destroyed, and 50 rural roads have been rendered impassable. The Department of Disaster Mitigation and Prevention is leading the response in coordination with the Thai Red Cross. As of 10 September, 16,200 people have been displaced and are being housed in temporary shelters. Distribution of drinking water is ongoing and mobile kitchens have been deployed to provide food to those in need. Heavy rainfall is expected to continue until 15 September, which could further aggravate the situation. ?
