Highlights:

  • Humanitarian organizations remain concerned about deteriorating health conditions in refugee sites in Upper Nile and Unity states.
  • Heavy rains are hampering access to communities displaced by conflict in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State.
  • The Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster is concerned that the lean season will move more South Sudanese towards food insecurity.

Situation overview

Humanitarian organizations responded to multiple ongoing emergency operations in South Sudan over the week. Some 170,000 Sudanese refugees in Upper Nile and Unity states were provided with food, water, health support and other assistance, as new arrivals continued to be received from across the border. Aid agencies also focused on responding to people returning to Abyei, and those displaced from the contested area in the Agok area, Warrap State and other parts of South Sudan. In Northern Bahr el Ghazal, the delivery of humanitarian assistance was restricted to conflict-displaced communities due to the onset of heavy rains. On the food security front, the lean season is expected to be more severely felt by South Sudanese households this year, due to a number of factors pushing people towards food insecurity.

Presidents Kiir and Bashir meet in Addis Ababa

The Presidents of South Sudan and Sudan met in Addis Ababa on 14 July on the sidelines of an African Union summit. Although no readout from the meeting has been received, it has raised hopes for a possible negotiated settlement of unresolved Comprehensive Peace Agreement issues, before the UN Security Council deadline of 2 August.
