The Special Rapporteur thanks the Government of Mexico for the invitation and
organization of his visit, and for the open and constructive dialogues that took place. (...) The Special Rapporteur considers that the organization of the water and sanitation

VISIT TO ZIMBABWE :REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF UNILATERAL COERCIVE MEASURES ON THE ENJOYMENT OF HUMAN RIGHTS, ALENA DOUHAN
As noted by the Food and Agriculture Organization
of the United Nations and the World Food Programme, fertilizers are at risk of becoming
unavailable to farmers in Zimbabwe due to complicated logistics and costs related to travel,
production and refining.
(...) Another example
concerns an animal conservation effort involving the organization Canada’s Accredited Zoos
and Aquariums, which allocated funds to participating African countries except for
Zimbabwe, as the German bank KFW blocked funding due to overcompliance. (...) Challenges in procuring
passports certified by the International Civil Aviation Organization were also reported, owing
to overcompliance, as 90 per cent are exported from third countries.

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON ADEQUATE HOUSING AS A COMPONENT OF THE RIGHT TO AN ADEQUATE STANDARD OF LIVING, AND ON THE RIGHT TO NON-DISCRIMINATION IN THIS CONTEXT, MILOON KOTHARI : ADDENDUM
Almost half the South African population (21.9 million people) live below the national
poverty line as reported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2004 and
two thirds of total income is concentrated in the richest quintile of the population.10 The high
level of unemployment is also a key contributor to inequality; according to the International
Labour Organization (ILO), in 2006 the total unemployment rate was 25.5 per cent of the
economically active population.11 Life expectancy at birth remains very low (47 years in 2004)
due to the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS.

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS, CHALOKA BEYANI : ADDENDUM
At the end of 2013, 90 per cent of the population displaced by the earthquake had
left camps, mostly as a result of return and relocation programmes implemented by the
Government, the United Nations and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners. As of
30 June 2014, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the total
number of IDPs in camps amounted to 103,565 (28,143 households) in 172 camps/sites.
11. (...) Upon
return, IDPs would either reconstruct or repair their damaged houses or rent a house with
the support of the rental subsidies mechanism. (...) Replacement of lost documentation for
displaced families was facilitated by efforts such as a UNHCR-funded programme in 2011
through which the Haitian organization Action Citoyenne pour l’Abolition de la Torture
(ACAT) assisted 10,000 IDPs with their civil documentation needs.21
