ABOUT THE MISSION IN SOUTH SUDAN …
The civil armed conflict that broke out in South Sudan in mid‐December 2013 has burdened the country with a multi‐layered array of challenges. According to OCHA and UNHCR, in December 2018, over 4 million people were still forced to flee their homes due to insecurity, including 1.87 million IDPs and 2.27 million refugees still hosted in neighboring countries. The protracted nature of the conflict has considerably destroyed key basic infrastructures, and weakened livelihood opportunities, while eroding the coping capacities of the local communities. The most vulnerable are also facing the impact of climate change, with alteration of usual rainfall patterns, leading to seasonal droughts and flooding, causing further displacements and contributing to resource‐based conflicts.
According to the 2019 HRP, 1.8 M people will be in need of nutritional care across the country, and IPC data suggests that the burden of malnutrition will continue to increase due to food insecurity. Indeed, the deadly conflict brought a deep economic crisis which has directly affected the population access to basic resources.
SI’s mission in South Sudan has been fully operational since 2006, with WaSH interventions in Upper Nile and Jonglei State. In 2018 SI managed to reach about 90,000 people with its emergency WASH, FSL and S-NFI interventions in 8 out of 10 former states of South Sudan. Presently SI has permanent bases in Juba, Aburoc and Malakal (Upper Nile) state and in Raja (former Western Bahr el Ghazal). Over the years SI has played a key role in the Emergency Preparedness and Response strategy in South Sudan, and has been able to implement emergency responses all over the country.
