South Sudan Crisis Situation report as of 3 March 2014 Report number 24

Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 03 Mar 2014

Highlights

  • Violence continued in Upper Nile State, causing further fear and displacement, including into Ethiopia. As clashes moved north from Malakal, aid agencies prepared for further displacement and raised concern about civilians caught up in the violence.

  • So far, aid agencies have reached 758,400 of the 3.2 million people across South Sudan to be assisted by June. Reaching the 3.2 million will depend on adequate funding. The Crisis Response Plan is currently only 21 per cent funded, which poses challenges for pre-positioning and frontline services to people in need.

  • Since 15 December, over 908,000 people have been displaced by violence, including 705,800 people within South Sudan and 202,500 into neighbouring countries.
