Natural Disasters and Complex Humanitarian Emergencies Discussion

The small country of Conflictusland recently broke out into a civil war and is experiencing mass genocide. Leading up to this state of emergency, the two main ethnic groups (the Pugnas and the Bellums) had years of post-colonial conflict and tensions. The Pugnas were historically farmers, and the Bellums were historically herders, each playing a role in food provision for the country. The Pugnas significantly outnumber the Bellums. However during the colonial-era, cattle were seen as more valuable than crops and the Bellums were the ruling party. Post-independence, the Bellums’ leader was killed in a plane explosion, shot down by an unknown source. Pugnas, outnumbering the Bellums, immediately took power and began planning for not only political change, but the elimination of the Bellums. Civil war broke out and one of the largest mass genocides took place. To avoid being killed, hundreds of thousands of Bellums have fled to the adjoining country, Salutemland.
