OCHA South Sudan Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin for the period 16-22 July 2012

Highlights:

  • Acute diarrhea causes deaths of Sudanese refugees in camps.
  • US$20 million has been allocated from the Central Emergency Response Fund to support Sudanese refugees in Upper Nile and Unity.
  • Revised total of US$1.2 billion needed to maintain humanitarian operations in South Sudan until the end of the year.

Situation overview

The security situation in Northern Bahr el Ghazal was tense and unpredictable after South Sudan accused Sudan of bombing inside its territory on 20 July. Heavy rains continued to restrict access to 7,000 conflict-displaced people in the state’s Jaac, Rumaker and Warlang areas. Humanitarian organizations continued to focus on assisting some 162,000 Sudanese refugees in Upper Nile and Unity states. In response to escalating needs, US$20 million has been allocated to the refugee response effort from the Central Emergency Response Fund. In other humanitarian funding developments, a midyear review of the Consolidated Appeal for South Sudan revealed that $1.2 billion is required to meet emergency needs. The appeal is currently 45 per cent funded.

Talks resume between South Sudan and Sudan High-level negotiations between South Sudan and Sudan re-commenced on 22 July in the Ethiopia capital, Addis Ababa. A second face-to-face meeting between the Presidents of the two countries is scheduled to take place, according to the African Union (AU).

However, the exact date of the proposed meeting is yet to be confirmed.
South Sudan signs up to Geneva Conventions South Sudan ratified the 1949 Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols on 16 July, following the passing of a bill by the National Legislative Assembly. The Geneva Conventions set out rules which seek for humanitarian reasons to limit the effects of armed conflict. The rules protect persons not, or no longer, participating in hostilities, such as civilians, health workers and aid workers, wounded or sick soldiers, prisoners of war and other persons deprived of their liberty. They also impose restrictions on the means and methods of warfare to which parties to conflict can resort.
