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.
Owing to its geographical location and to geopolitical developments, Ethiopia is likely to receive more people seeking refuge from neighbouring countries in 2015 and beyond. The Government maintains an open-door-policy and continues to allow humanitarian access and protection to those seeking refuge on its territory.
Les violences qui ont éclaté au Soudan du Sud en décembre 2013 ont fait peser un fardeau supplémentaire sur une sous-région déjà très instable, en proie à d’incessants confl¬its et déplacements de population.
The eruption of violence in South Sudan in December 2013 placed an additional burden on an already volatile subregion, which continues to suffer from conflict and displacement.
Nine months into the South Sudan crisis, there were approximately 1.3 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and more than 450,000 new South Sudanese refugees, who fled to Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
Overview | Working environment
Regional political and security developments, climate change, and the resulting impact on human lives and livelihoods, are projected to affect humanitarian programmes and refugee operations in Kenya.
| Overview |
The Arab Republic of Egypt is a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol, as well as the 1969 OAU Convention. As the country has, however, not yet developed national asylum procedures and institutions, the functional responsibilities for all aspects of registration, documentation and refugee status determination (RSD) are carried out by UNHCR under the 1954 Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Egypt.
