Boko Haram arrests worsen Cameroon prison conditions
6 January 2016 (IRIN ), Detention conditions in Cameroon's prisons are worsening as thousands of people suspected of having links with Boko Haram are thrown into jail. An ill-equipped court system fails to process the cases, while suspects languish indefinitely, and more and more arrive from the Far North Region each week.

Briefing: Will a political dispute become a humanitarian disaster in Nepal?
21 December 2015 (IRIN ), Eight months after a huge earthquake devastated Nepal and killed almost 9,000 people, an import-crippling border blockade provoked by a political dispute has sent prices skyrocketing and is stalling efforts to rebuild. If left unresolved, hundreds of thousands of quake survivors, many of them still living without proper shelter, could suffer shortages this winter.

COP21: Climate change and conflict meet in Cameroon

Bangladesh’s climate change migrants
13 November 2015 (IRIN ), Farmland is being lost to climate change in Bangladesh, driving mass migration to slums. But the slums are at risk too, as rising sea levels and melting glaciers feed flooding, which in turn spreads water-borne diseases. Bangladesh is hoping next month's climate change conference in Paris will provide some solutions.

Iraq's killer weather
12 November 2015 (IRIN ), Iraq is a dangerous country — the UN counts 559 civilians killed there by terrorism and armed conflict in October alone. What is less well known is that its harsh climate, heavy rain as well as extremes in temperature, can also prove fatal.

Will Yemen’s storm yet prove disastrous?
5 November 2015 (IRIN ), Powerful Cyclone Chapala unloaded the worst of its wind and rain on Yemen earlier this week, flooding large portions of its southeastern coast.

Turn on the taps to defeat the next Ebola
15 June 2015 (IRIN ), It is a cruel irony that many of the top doctors and nurses in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone will not be around to help rebuild their health systems in the wake of Ebola, having succumbed themselves to the virus. For those that are, the biggest challenges are likely to be electricity, sanitation, and, most of all, water.

Photo Feature: Libya's forgotten displaced
18 May 2015 (IRIN ), During Libya’s 2011 revolution, the town of Tawergha was used as a military base by pro-Gaddafi forces. In a revenge attack, Misratan militias entered the town and burned it to the ground, causing some 30,000 Tawerghans to flee. Four years later, many Tawerghans remain displaced. IRIN brings you this photo feature from a Tawergha displacement camp 90km from the capital Tripoli, in a remote location in the mountainous region of Tarhuna, where aid rarely reaches and hope is wearing thin.
