OCHA South Sudan Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin 25 February - 3 March 2013


Humanitarian Bulletin

South Sudan

25 February - 3 March 2013


  • Aid agencies continued to respond to over 23,000 people affected by recent violence in Jonglei State, as tensions persist ahead of a planned military offensive against non-state armed actors in Pibor County
  • The UN Humanitarian Air Service has only secured funding until May, potentially paralyzing the entire aid operation for the second half of the year if further funding is not identified
  • Over 4 million people are anticipated to be food insecure in 2013, of which 1 million will be severely food insecure according to the latest report from food security partners.

Situation overview
The security situation in parts of Jonglei State remained precarious. Despite this, aid
agencies continued to deliver assistance to people affected by recent violence. Humanitarian actors are concerned that a build-up of troops in Pibor town and preparations for a military offensive against non-state armed actors may impact the humanitarian situation.

New refugees continued to arrive in Unity and Upper Nile states, in particular in Yida settlement, where partners are concerned that the site could see upwards of 120,000 people from its current 70,000 refugees by June.

A newly published report found that while less people than anticipated are likely to be food insecure in 2013, more than a million people will remain severely food insecure.
