Hintergrundinformation


The political and security situation in South Sudan remains tense despite the establishment, in April 2016, of a national unity government as part of the 2015 peace agreement between the parties to the non-international armed conflict that broke out in 2013. Clashes continue to take place between the government and the opposition, as they did in Juba in July 2016. Armed groups also continue to fight among themselves. These confrontations and other violence are sometimes fueled by communal or ethnic tensions. Attacks against civilians, obstruction of medical care, and other unlawful conduct by weapon bearers from different sides continue to be reported.

Some 1.6 million people have reportedly been displaced as a result of conflict and other violence; over 800,000 are taking refuge in neighboring countries. Thousands are staying at camps and at the “protection-of-civilians sites” of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS); tensions and clashes sometimes force people to flee these areas.

Many people are at risk or suffering from malnutrition and disease because of the unavailability or inaccessibility of basic commodities and essential services.

The security situation has adversely affected the economy and people’s livelihoods. Security and logistical constraints limit humanitarian agencies’ ability to assist vulnerable communities.

Tensions persist between South Sudan and Sudan, particularly over an unresolved border dispute.
