Les Fonds de Financement Communs Pays (CBPF) permettent aux organisations humanitaires d’apporter une assistance rapide et efficace à ceux qui en ont le plus besoin. Ils permettent aux Gouvernements et aux donateurs privés de mettre en commun leurs ressources pour répondre à des crises spécifiques, qu’il s’agisse d’une catastrophe naturelle ou d’un conflit armé.
FONCTIONNEMENT DES CBPF

More than 50 women from greater Western Equatoria have attended an open peace day workshop in Yambio. Two women were selected to represent the region at a national conference aimed at coming up with recommendations on how to increase women’s participation in conflict resolution and peace negotiations.
The declaration of famine in two counties of South Sudan last month led to immediate pledges of aid. Grave editorials called on Western governments to prioritise relief efforts to the needy, despite the shortcomings of the government and the ongoing civil war.

Highlights of the week:
How does MSF work? It’s a deceptively simple question with at least as many different answers as we have patients all over the world. However, there are some common threads. From the most basic nutritional assistance for malnourished children to the most complex medical research, all of our work is guided by the principles set out in our charter: upholding medical ethics, maintaining impartiality, bearing witness on behalf of our patients, ensuring we remain accountable to both our donors and beneficiaries, and preserving our independence.
During the reporting period, 2,749 households in North and south Darfur were provided with ES/ NFI items from the NFI Common Pipeline through implementing partners. A breakdown of distributions can be seen in the table below.
The United Nations Mission in South Sudan, UNMISS, and its implementing partners, the South Sudan Development Agency SSUDA and the Humanitarian and Development Consortium HDC, have launched a Quick Impact Project (QIP) to renovate Malakal’s police station and the Malakal city council court.
The project, financed by UNMISS at the cost of 47,000 USD, will equip and prioritize the Government’s organs of rule of law and will provide more than 100,000 citizens with improved access to legal services. The work is expected to be completed in five weeks.

On 16 March, UNMISS Civil Affairs Division (CAD) and Communications and Public Information Section facilitated a mini conference in the UNMISS base in Malakal. Representatives for internally displaced persons staying at the UNMISS protection of civilians (PoC) site met with local leaders from outside the camp in a first and promising attempt to increase trust between the two groups.
Foreign aid groups are facing pressure in several African countries to hire more local workers. But South Sudan's recent move to increase work permit fees to up to $10,000 could spell disaster for the war-torn country.
