South Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan 2015 South Sudan Consolidated Appeal 2014-2016 CHF (Common Humanitarian Fund) Guide to Giving: Key ways of contributing to the crisis response in South Sudan
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.
IOM’s updated Humanitarian Compendium is now available in a new online platform: http://humanitariancompendium.iom.int/. The Humanitarian Compendium charts the humanitarian needs and strategic priorities of IOM in more than 30 countries for 2014, as coordinated at the inter-agency level, and reflected in Inter-Agency Response Plans and IOM Appeals. The Humanitarian Compendium will be updated on a rolling basis to reflect changes in requirements and funding received.

Geneva, 13 October 2014 Dear Colleagues,
This revised Emergency Appeal seeks a total of CHF 2,364,704 (increased from CHF 1,722,559) to enable the IFRC to support Uganda Red Cross Society to scale-up the response to the South Sudan population movement crisis in Uganda and to deliver assistance and support to 25,000 beneficiaries (5,000 households).This budget adjustment complements the existing plan of action with additional or increased outcomes planned in food-security, livelihoods, disaster preparedness, health, water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, and shelter.
This Revised Emergency Appeal reflects a plan for the Federation-wide consolidated response from the International Federation and its member Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies to support the efforts of the South Sudan Red Cross (SSRC) in areas of South Sudan that have not been directly affected by the conflict
Substantial humanitarian action is urgently required in Sudan in 2014.Overall, a total of 6.9 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance including life-saving interventions, protection from conflict and violence, strengthening household and community coping mechanisms and, where conditions permit, supporting longer-term solutions to the plight of internally displaced people (IDPs) and refugees.
The UN and partners have agreed on the following strategic objectives for 2014:
The situation of the IDPs in South Sudan and the refugees in the neighbouring countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda has changed, in some cases dramatically, since the first Regional Refugee Response Plan (Inter-Agency Appeal for the South Sudanese Refugee Emergency, Jan-Dec 2014).
Regional Response Appeal to assist displaced populations
Following the South Sudan crisis which has left many people killed and displaced, NRC has launched a regional emergency appeal to make it possible for a meaningful humanitarian action to take place.
During a recent visit to Awerial, NRC Secretary General Jan Egeland witnessed the poor conditions that internally displaced persons were living in, with multiple families clustered around every tree or bush seeking shelter from harsh climate.
Before the crisis, South Sudan was already the scene of one of the world’s largest humanitarian operations – responding to structural food insecurity, large refugee populations, intra-tribal violence, floods, drought and austerity caused by the halt in oil production in 2013.
A new strategic direction will focus on responding to emergencies and strengthening community resilience
Humanitarian partners expect that the current crisis will affect more than one in two South Sudanese by December 2014.
This revised Emergency Appeal supports the Sudanese Red Crescent Society to deliver assistance to some 213,000 people (an increase from 150,000 people), and increases the budget to CHF 5.3m (from CHF 3.7m), with a total appeal timeframe of 24 months.
With the current contributions (cash and in-kind) totalling some CHF 1,028,462 (28% of the current budget), the total revised amount being sought is just over CHF 4.3 million.
Appeal Target: US$ 2,123,291
Less pledges/contributions: US$ 208,873
Balance Requested: US$ 1,914,508
