Dear Colleagues,

More than 100,000 households are displaced in Pibor, Uror and Duk counties in Jonglei state of South Sudan and in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. This humanitarian crisis is a result of retaliatory attacks in the inter-communal conflict in the state, which continued until late January 2012. The tribal conflict was a result of many factors including: socio-economic, political, historical enmity and presence of small arms.

Hope resists despair in Sahel

Report
ACT Alliance

by Mara Caputo

Successful initiatives in the Sahel that span the aid-development continuum have been cultivated in the midst of mounting drought and despair, providing a blueprint for a way beyond chronic food insecurity.

The despair is born of a deepening food crisis as an estimated 12 million people concentrated primarily in the West African region of the Sahel teeter on the brink of famine. The governments of Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Chad and Niger have already declared states of emergency and called for international assistance.
