Five years of civil war have led to widespread human rights violations large-scale internal displacement and refugee outflow to Sudan and Uganda, as well as largely deteriorated food security. Clashes continue despite a peace agreement in 2018, causing further displacements. Intercommunal violence is widespread, with cattle raids a common source of tension, particularly between agro-pastoralist communities. Nearly 4 million people are estimated to be displaced, including 1.5 million IDPs and 2.2 million South Sudanese refugees. In addition, South Sudan host nearly 300,000 refugees from Sudan, DRC, Ethiopia and CAR.?
An estimated 6 million people around 51% of the total population are expected to experience Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or Emergency (IPC Phase 4). The conflict and displacement have led to disruptions of food production, livelihoods, and humanitarian assistance, as well as deterioration of the economy.?Attacks and ambushes on humanitarian convoys severely hamper the delivery of assistance and access to populations in need. As of January 2020, 7.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.?
INFORM measures South Sudan's risk of humanitarian crisis and disaster for 2019 to be very high, at 8.9/10, down from 9/10 in 2018. South Sudan's vulnerability is measured at 9.2/10.?
04 August 2020: On 28 July heavy floods displaced thousands of people in Bor town, Jonglei state, after a levee broke. Information on locations of the newly displaced is scarce. Several people are sheltering in schools, where physical distancing to avoid spread of COVID-19 is difficult or impossible. Shelter/NFIs, latrines, food, and mosquito nets are needed.?
03/07/2020: MSF suspended their medical activities in Pibor on 19 June after intercommunal clashes erupted in the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA), causing residents and MSF staff to flee into the bush. Currently, GPAA is without any functioning health facility. There are no referral options for the MSF patients as the only two hospitals in Juba are limited in resources and capacity, and are unable to receive new patients.?
