QUE FAISONS NOUS …
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. Currently, 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. The overall budget of the South Sudan mission is circa 2 million USD.
SI is currently implementing :
-Emergency WaSH response in Upper Nile,
-WaSH and FSL interventions in Western Bahr El Ghazal, targetting the urgent need of the most vulnerables (thought a synergy with a Health and Nutrition partner) while improving the resilience capacity of the community.
-Ebola preparedness in Health facilities and at community level in Nimule.
The main axis of SI’s country strategy are as follows:
-Address the most urgent needs of conflict, epidemic (including cholera and ebola) and natural disaster affected population
-Contribute to strengthening the resilience capacities of agro and agro pastoral communities affected by conflict and climate events.
-Contribute to reducing the prevalence of water borne diseases and malnutrition through integrated WaSH in health and WaSH in nutrition approaches in rural and urban settings.
