|GENEVA Cheap Asics Gel Lyte Shoes , Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- UN refugee agency UNHCR on Friday predicted that people will continue to arrive in Europe via the Mediterranean from Turkey at the rate of 5,000 per day in the coming four month, meaning that new arrivals will reach 600,000 by the end of February 2016.
With thousands of refugees and migrants continuing to arrive in Europe as winter approaches, UNHCR is currently appealing to donors for 96.15 million U.S. dollars in additional support for Greece and affected countries in the Balkans.
According to UNHCR Cheap Asics White Shoes , the most pressing needs were winter clothes, blankets and other winter supplies, to upgrade and improve the existing reception centres, provide emergency winterized shelter, provide transport to those unable to walk Cheap Asics Black Shoes , and support the volunteers providing welcome, support and shelter to refugees arriving at the Greek islands.
"Harsh weather conditions are likely to exacerbate the suffering of the thousands of refugees and migrants landing in Greece and travelling through the Balkans, and may result in further loss of life if adequate measures are not taken urgently," UNHCR spokesperson William Spindler said.
WINDHOEK， Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- A draft framework that aims to better coordinate Africa's drought relief efforts has been finalized in Namibia's capital Windhoek and awaits adoption by African Union heads of state on Friday.
Delegates to Africa's first ever drought conference agreed that a core team will be set up to implement the Strategic Framework for Drought Management and Enhancing Resilience to Drought in Africa for a year， while a continental Trust Fund for Africa that will run for three years will be formed.
The draft framework will be tabled before a meeting of relevant portfolio ministers Thursday before it is handed over to the AU heads of state.
During the proceedings Wednesday， the delegates declared that synergies among regional economic groupings， private sector partners and civil society organizations should be increased to address drought， land degradation and desertification by implementing the framework.
Southern African countries are experiencing prolonged drought and United Nations agency OCHA estimated that 32 million people will be food insecure between June 2016 and March 2017.
COPENHAGEN， Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Denmark's Maersk Line， the world's biggest container shipping company by volume， reported on Friday its first loss since the financial crisis.
The container company under Danish shipping and oil group A.P. Moller-Maersk suffered a net loss of 151 million U.S. dollars for the second quarter 2016， against 507 million dollars profit for the same period last year， the group said in its interim financial report.
The second quarter revenue totaled 5.1 billion kroner(764 million U.S. dollars)， down 19 percent from the same period a year earlier.
Maersk said the development was driven by a 24 percent decline in average freight rates， mainly attributable to lower bunker prices and weak market conditions.
According to Maersk， global container demand grew around 2 percent in the second quarter year-on-year， while the global container fleet grew around 6 percent.
"We have had many years in which the capacity of the market is growing faster than demand. Therefore we have ended up in the situation，" said Maersk Group CEO Soeren Skou in a webcast conference call on Friday.
The container shipping industry has continued to see steps towards consolidation through mergers and acquisitions as well as formation of large scale alliances. In the second quarter， Maersk Line together with the global 2M shipping alliance MSC redesigned the Asia to North Europe network to offer customers better flexibility and reliability.
Maersk Line said it welcomes consolidation as the industry is fragmented and consolidation will enable carriers to create economies of scale and optimise networks， which in the long-run will benefit customers.
Overall， Maersk Group delivered an underlying profit of 134 million dollars in the second quarter， down from 1.1 billion dollars for the same period last year.
Skou said "the result is unsatisfactory，" noting that nearly all the group's markets were negatively impacted by low growth and falling prices in the second quarter.
Maersk kept its earnings guidance for the full year 2016， forecasting an underlying result "significantly below last year."
Meanwhile， gross cash flow used for capital expenditure is now expected to be around 6 billion dollars in 2016， down from around 7 billion dollars in 2015.
According to Skou， the Board of Directors have initiated a process to develop and consider the strategic and structural options for the Maersk Group and will report on progress of the review before the end of the third quarter， 2016.
