In South Sudan’s Lol State, Nidier Atak sought to flee from the violence that swept through her village of Wanalel, where people already suffered from serial crop failures due to a persistent drought. Her husband had left the parched village in 2016 to look for work, but he didn’t return. “He used to be a farmer, but for several years there has been no rain when we needed it.

It is a forum meant to evaluate the peace agreement and to see areas which have not been implemented in the agreement could be fast tracked”, said the country’s cabinet affairs minister, Martin Elia Lomuro.
