This revised Emergency Appeal decreases the budget to a total of CHF 3,096,686 (from CHF 5.3m) for a total of 277,887 beneficiaries, and extends the operation for an additional six months. This revision enables the IFRC to support the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) to address remaining unmet needs under the previous plan and to meet new or increasing needs arising from recent population movement’s (some 64,033 new refugees) arriving to camps and communities in the 4 states of Blue Nile, Khartoum, White Nile and South Kordofan.
Humanitarian needs in Sudan are considerable and remain important in scope. Despite years of assistance humanitarian needs are acute and in some cases are expanding. These are predominantly caused by conflict which, in turn, drives displacement and food insecurity.

Geneva 15 April 2015
South Sudan is facing violence since almost 16 months, steaming from a power struggle between the incumbent President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Dr. Riek Machar, which erupted on 15th December 2013 in Juba when Mr. Kiir accused Mr. Machar of staging a coup. Violence has since prevailed and is often breaking out along ethnical lines between Dinka and Nuer tribes.
1. Executive Summary
The Kenya refugee operation is often cited as an example of a protracted refugee situation with traditional refugee camps in place for the past 20 or so years. In the last four years, however, the operation has been anything but static in responding to two major influxes from neighbouring countries while undergoing a transition in terms of partnerships and innovations in assistance delivery.

Geneva, 25 February 2015
Since more than 12 months hostilities have affected the South Sudanese population, steaming from a power struggle between the incumbent President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Dr. Riek Machar. On the evening of the 15th December 2013 violence erupted in Juba when Mr. Kiir accused Mr. Machar of staging a coup. This violence has since prevailed.
Since late December 2013, Uganda has stretched its capacity to assist both host communities and approximately 130,000 new South Sudanese refugees in the remote West Nile sub-region, including women, child survivors of sexual violence, and separated and unaccompanied children in urgent need of protection. Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) rates of 19.6 per cent and Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) levels of 4.1 per cent1 can be found among the South Sudanese refugees in Arua, Adjumani and Kiryandongo districts.
UNICEF is requesting US$116.9 million to meet the humanitarian needs of children in Sudan.
Since the conflict, at least 1.7 million children and adolescents are in need of emergency education, including some 400,000 who have dropped out of school. Many of them are unable to access learning due to displacement, while others are out of school due to the impact of conflict on their communities or are living in host communities where education resources are nonexistent or overstretched.
This Emergency Appeal seeks a total of some CHF 1.05m to enable the IFRC to support the Ethiopia Red Cross to deliver assistance and support to a total of some 34,365 people with a focus on reducing the health risks of the South Sudan refugee population and host communities in Gambella through the provision of first aid and community-based health in Leitchour camp, Ningnang and Pagak entry point. The planned response reflects the current situation and information available at this point of the evolving operation.
L’écart entre les besoins humanitaires et les ressources disponibles pour y répondre continue de croître. Ce document énonce les appels inter-agences qui demandent 16,4 milliards de dollars en 2015 pour aider 57,5 millions de personnes à travers 22 pays.
Regional Strategic Overview
On 15 December 2013, violence broke out in Juba, South Sudan’s capital, and quickly spread throughout the country. Though political negotiations are ongoing there have been few improvements on the ground and armed conflict has continued throughout 2014. The humanitarian consequences of the ongoing crisis include massive population displacement, a high rate of death, disease and injuries, food insecurity, disrupted livelihoods and wide scale malnutrition.
The gap between humanitarian needs and the resources available to meet them continues to grow.
This document sets out inter-agency appeals requesting $16.4 billion to assist 57.5 million people in 22 countries in 2015.
AN OVERVIEW OF THE CRISIS
• Life-threatening needs driven by the conflict are made worse by extreme poverty and some of the world’s lowest levels of development indicators.
• Needs are most acute in areas with active hostilities or large numbers of people displaced.
• Chronic needs such as severe food insecurity, high rates of malnutrition, vulnerability to disease outbreaks and exposure to gender-based violence are also present in other parts of the country.
The humanitarian environment in Sudan has deteriorated over the past two years, with new, con ict-induced internal displacement in Darfur. About 400,000 new internally displaced people (IDPs) were registered between January and August 2014 in the country. According to UN figures, 6.9 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Sudan. Latest estimates suggest that by the end of 2015, there could be up to 460,000 refugees and asylum-seekers in the country.
