Next Tuesday, on the 20 October, the Secretary-General will send a video message to a ministerial conference on the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Central Sahel, a region that includes Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger.
The conference will be hosted by our humanitarian colleagues - along with Denmark, Germany and the European Union - and aims to raise money for humanitarian action and to encourage both donor countries and countries of the region to come up with policy commitments to build resilience and stave off future humanitarian needs.
Our colleagues warn that people living in the border region between Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger are now at the epicentre of conflict, poverty, and climate change. More than 13 million people need humanitarian assistance and 1.5 million people are internally displaced, a twenty-fold increase over two years. Lockdowns and other COVID-19 prevention measures have pushed an additional 6 million people into extreme poverty.
The UN will be represented at the virtual meeting by the Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock.

Today is World Food Day and this year's theme is "Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. Our actions are our future".
In a message to mark the Day, the Secretary-General says that the awarding of this year's Nobel Prize for Peace to the World Food Programme (WFP) recognizes the right of all people to food and our common quest to achieve zero hunger. He stresses that, in a world of plenty, it is a grave affront that hundreds of millions go to bed hungry each night.

The Secretary-General was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Saeb Erekat, Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) Secretary-General and Chief Negotiator for the Palestinians in the Middle East Peace Process.  
The Secretary-General was grateful to have known Dr. Erekat and to have called him a friend.  He was dedicated to the peaceful pursuit of justice, dignity and the legitimate rights of Palestinians to self-determination, sovereignty and statehood.  
Now is the time to continue his crucial work and end the conflict that has tragically affected the lives of so many.  The Secretary-General reiterates his own and the United Nations' commitment to support all efforts to bring the parties together to achieve a long-awaited, just and sustainable two-State solution, with Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security.  
On behalf of the United Nations, the Secretary-General extends our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Erekat's family, President Abbas, the people of Palestine and his many friends and supporters around the world. 
The Secretary-General also sent a pre-recorded video message to today's meeting of the Council of Heads of State of Member States of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. 
He said that the pandemic has intensified vulnerabilities, inequalities and fragilities across the world, and that the recovery will require global cooperation to protect lives and livelihoods, and to keep economies and businesses afloat.  
The Secretary-General said that he counts on the strong engagement of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization's Member States and welcomes their support for his appeal for a global ceasefire. 
The International Organization for Migration and the World Food Programme  warn that COVID-19 could push more people to move out of necessity, as hunger surges among migrant and displaced communities.  
It shows that the world's 164 million migrant workers, especially those working in the informal sector, are some of the worst hit by the pandemic.  
The report notes that the World Bank expects a 14 per cent drop in remittances to low- and middle-income countries by 2021 and that will have consequences for food security, and those consequences could be devastating.
