The Rwandan Declassification Collection not only concerns Rwanda, but many of the other states in Central Africa and the African Great Lake region. The Rwandan Genocide (as well as civil war in Burundi) created a huge population of refugees and displaced persons that contributed to the destabilization of the entire region. The role of the international community and its response to events in Rwanda is described throughout the collection, including the actions of Belgium and France; the United Nations (UN), the Organization of African Unity (OAU), and the European Union (EU); non-government organizations; and the United States.

General Points: USG Humanitarian Actions to Date
a
ince April 1994, the U.S. Government has financed $95 million worth of emergencyactivities, e.g., food and non-food commodities, services and their transport to theregion. Additional assistance is likely.
q
Some activities can only pre-position their funds and commodities until access to those
in need improve.
.
Similarly, other funds reserved for the Rwanda crisis can only beobligated when NGOs can develop and submit quality proposals that can be
implemented.
q
The USG continues to encourage the UN and NGO humanitarian activities in northernRwanda as well as in other areas where there are people in need.
General Points: Initial RPF actions on humanitarian
issues
q
The establishment and continuation of monthly meetings and sector working groupshas been positive.
q
The objective of holding NGOs accountable is good.
Recent Developments: Key RPF Actions on humanitarian issues
a
he lack of full cooperation from the RPF resulted in the cancellation of the
UN/NGO assessment scheduled for June 21-22.
q
The assignment of "territories" to NGOs, while not providing the necessary escorts orgranting access to work in assigned locations is hampering NGO operations.
q
he lack of "RPF escorts" for the NGOs hampers their ability to execute programs.More specifically, problems arise from :
o
the lack of guides or escorts on week-ends, and
o
the assignment of less guides than territories assigned (e.g., three
different territories, but only one guide).
