OCHA South Sudan Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin for the period 20-26 August 2012



  • The health situation at the Yida refugee site in Unity State continued to be critical, with 14 people reported to have died over the week, according to UNHCR.
  • Inter-agency humanitarian assessments continued in multiple flood-affected states across the country.
  • The food security situation showed a slight worsening compared to June last year, according to the 7th round of the Food Security Monitoring System covering June to July.

Situation overview

The humanitarian community continued to be gripped by the refugee crisis, with some 170,000 Sudanese having fled into Unity and Upper Nile states to seek humanitarian assistance because of fighting in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile, which broke out in June and September 2011. Aid agencies on the ground are working tirelessly to meet growing health and nutrition needs, and to reduce mortality numbers. Relief organizations were also focused on responding to communities affected by seasonal flooding. Multiple assessments and response operations are underway in many states across the country. Partners also continued to provide humanitarian assistance to people displaced from the contested Abyei area, of whom over 75,000 people so far are estimated to have received a full food basket for August.

The resumption of high level negotiations between the Governments of South Sudan and Sudan on unresolved Comprehensive Peace Agreement issues is reportedly being postponed until after the funeral of the late Prime Minister of Ethiopia Meles Zenawi, according to media reports.
