Operational update on Cyclone Idai: Destruction and anguish as thousands remain homeless

ICRC - News Release No. 19/11
29 March 2019

As flood-waters from Cyclone Idai recede, the scale of the devastation left behind is becoming clearer. But, worryingly, some of the hardest hit communities remain cut off from outside assistance. Tens of thousands of people are homeless, and hundreds of families have been separated. In order to support communities reeling from the storm in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is working with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and national Red Cross societies to provide assistance.

“As we reached remote communities cut-off by flooding and landslides, we are struck by the resilience that people have despite the tremendous hardship. We are rapidly deploying our teams of water, livelihoods, and health specialists to assess and address their immediate needs,” said Hicham Mandoudi, who is leading ICRC’s relief efforts from Chimoio, Mozambique.

Ten million Afghans face severe hardship after extreme weather

Kabul/Kuala Lumpur/Geneva 28 March 2019 -Ten million people in Afghanistan – more than a quarter of its population – face severe acute food insecurity and need urgent help after floods and drought, say the Afghan Red Crescent Society and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Three years of drought have contributed to massive crop failure, economic hardship, hunger and loss of life, and forced 266,000 people from their homes. In March 2019, extreme weather deepened extreme hardship, when above normal rain and snow fell on soil with limited vegetation or ability to soak up the water, bringing flash floods to nine provinces, killing 63 people and displacing at least 281,000 to makeshift camps with inadequate services.

Climate change is increasing the hardship for people in Afghanistan. Temperatures are rising, leading to changes in snowmelt, and rainfall is getting more erratic, with an increased risk of floods and droughts. Repeated disasters have eroded people’s capacity to cope.

Yemen: A renewal of fighting is endangering a tired, hungry and war-weary population

ICRC - News Release No. 19/10
27 March 2019

Yemen/Geneva (ICRC) – Four years after the beginning of the conflict in Yemen and only a few months after agreements that gave hope to a war-weary nation, a renewal in hostilities is again forcing people on the move and taking the country from bad to worse.

Hopes that violence, displacement, disease and hunger would begin to subside after years of misery in Yemen are being crushed by a renewal of conflict.

“Despite a glimmer of hope a few months ago, for millions of Yemenis life has become unbearable. The renewed fighting only serves to exacerbate an already catastrophic situation,” said Franz Rauchenstein, the head of the ICRC delegation in Yemen.

Pravna podlaga

Podlaga za obvestilo je spremenjeni Zakon o elektronskih komunikacijah (Uradni list št. 109/2012; v nadaljevanju ZEKom-1), ki je začel veljati v začetku leta 2013. Prinesel je nova pravila glede uporabe piškotkov in podobnih tehnologij za shranjevanje informacij ali dostop do informacij, shranjenih na računalniku ali mobilni napravi uporabnika.

Kaj so piškotki?

Piškotki so majhne datoteke, pomembne za delovanje spletnih strani, največkrat z namenom, da je uporabnikova izkušnja boljša.

Piškotek običajno vsebuje zaporedje črk in številk, ki se naloži na uporabnikov računalnik, ko ta obišče določeno spletno stran. Ob vsakem ponovnem obisku bo spletna stran pridobila podatek o naloženem piškotku in uporabnika prepoznala.

Poleg funkcije izboljšanja uporabniške izkušnje je njihov namen različen. Piškotki se lahko uporabljajo tudi za analizo vedenja ali prepoznavanje uporabnikov. Zato ločimo različne vrste piškotkov.

Piškotki, ki jih uporabljamo na tej strani sledijo smernicam:

1. Nujno potrebni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki omogočajo uporabo nujno potrebnih komponent za pravilno delovanje spletne strani. Brez teh piškotov servisi, ki jih želite uporabljati na tej spletni strani, ne bi delovali pravilno (npr. prijava, nakupni proces, ...).

2. Izkustveni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki zbirajo podatke, kako se uporabniki vedejo na spletni strani z namenom izboljšanja izkustvene komponente spletne strani (npr. katere dele spletne strani obiskujejo najpogosteje). Ti piškotki ne zbirajo informacij, preko katerih bi lahko identificirali uporabnika.

3. Funkcionalni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki omogočajo spletni strani, da si zapomni nekatere vaše nastavitve in izbire (npr. uporabniško ime, jezik, regijo) in zagotavlja napredne, personalizirane funkcije. Tovrstni piškotki lahko omogočajo sledenje vašim akcijam na spletni strani.

4. Oglasni ali ciljani piškotki

Tovrstne piškotke najpogosteje uporabljajo oglaševalska in družabna omrežja (tretje strani) z namenom, da vam prikažejo bolj ciljane oglase, omejujejo ponavljanje oglasov ali merijo učinkovitost oglaševalskih akcij. Tovrstni piškotki lahko omogočajo sledenje vašim akcijam na spletu.

Nadzor piškotkov

Za uporabo piškotkov se odločate sami. Piškotke lahko vedno odstranite in s tem odstranite vašo prepoznavnost na spletu. Prav tako večino brskalnikov lahko nastavite tako, da piškotkov ne shranjujejo.

Za informacije o možnostih posameznih brskalnikov predlagamo, da si ogledate nastavitve.
