Indonesia

Since 2018, there has been an increasing number of security incidents and related fatalities, peaking in 2023, in West Papua territory. The region comprises the six Papua provinces of Indonesia. Violence and armed conflict, mostly related to fighting between the Indonesian military and the armed group West Papua National Liberation Army, have caused displacement. As at October 2023, there were an estimated 76,000 IDPs in the region. Many IDPs are reluctant to return to their homes given the presence of Indonesian security forces. These IDPs need food, adequate shelter, healthcare support, protection, education, and WASH services. Many IDPs have sought refuge in forests, where access to basic services is very limited. Many public facilities, such as schools, health facilities, and churches, have been turned into military infrastructure, limiting Papuans' access to basic services. Humanitarian access to the region is very restricted. (HRM 06/10/2023, HRM 18/01/2024, The Diplomat 06/04/2024)

Ecuador

Heavy rainfall, floods, and landslides, worsened by El Niño seasonal events, have been causing widespread destruction in Ecuador since the beginning of 2024. As at 3 April, the impact has killed eight people, injured 13, and affected 170,000, primarily in the western provinces of Manabí and Guayas. It had also affected or destroyed more than 38,000 homes, 400 educational institutions, and 29 healthcare facilities nationwide. As a result, people require access to shelter, education, and healthcare services. (ERCC accessed 09/04/2024, SGR 03/04/2024, Ecuador Government accessed 09/04/2024)

Myanmar

As at 25 March 2024, the resumption of armed conflict in Rakhine state since the breakdown of a ceasefire between the Arakan Army and the military junta in November 2023 had displaced nearly 157,000 people, bringing the number of IDPs in the state to around 350,000. The majority of the newly displaced are in rural areas and need shelter and essential relief items. The renewed conflict has resulted in heightened protection concerns in Rakhine, with 170 civilian deaths as at 3 March 2024 and the risk of forced conscription into military service. Armed conflict, administrative restrictions, road and waterway closures, telecommunication network interruptions, and power cuts are disrupting the supply chain and hindering the humanitarian response. As a result, Rakhine is facing food scarcity, shortages of essential items such as fuel, and increased prices of essential goods. Water scarcity is also a concern, especially for displaced people.
