    I am working on a new report for the Refugee Nutrition Information System (RNIS). The reports cover a variety of emergency contexts (mostly complex emergencies) in sub Saharan Africa but with a component on the current crisis in Afghanistan (see below). The report should be finished by the 12th of July and I leave my current position as coordinator of the RNIS at the end of July for a month's holiday before going back to the field once again with Oxfam.

    With time so short I am getting a little anxious and have a suspicion that there could be some long nights ahead before this next report is off my desk and away to the printers. For futher information on the RNIS
