According PRIMO one of the main public risks is – caused by the way we manage the migrants in a very slow and non-systemic way – the harm we do to the resilience and self respect of individual humans and their integration in public society. This update by Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) is an impressive and in depth story of ourselves. It proofs once again that risk management is still lacking momentum and is considered mainly from a higher ground perspective. Still public risk management seems to be in its primary stage of development.
“Between 1 January and 31 December 2015, an estimated 1,008,616 fled to Europe by sea. 84% of them came from refugee-producing countries, with 49% from Syria, 21% from Afghanistan and 9% from Iraq. 17% were women and 25% were children under the age of 18.
MSF (Medecins Sans Frontiers) teams provided more than 100,000 medical consultations to refugees and migrants on its search and rescue vessels in the Mediterranean Sea, in Italy, Greece, in the Balkans and in Western Europe. Despite winter conditions and attempts to close the sea route, people have not stopped fleeing and between January and April 2016, more than 180,000 people have arrived in Europe. More than 1,200 people have died or gone missing in this same period.” >>
