Following reported bombings and claims of displacement in Raja Town. The Inter-Cluster Working Group (ICWG) in WBeG State requested OCHA to facilitate and lead and IRNA mission in the county to verify claims of displacement and assess the general Humanitarian and protection situation of both old and new caseloads of IDPs in the County.
The IRNA team had two major objectives:
• Humanitarians deliver assistance to hardest-hit areas in Unity before fighting resumes.
• After three months of negotiations, humanitarian partners and supplies were able to travel by river to Wau Shiluk.
• Clashes and insecurity in Central and Western Equatoria forced thousands of civilians to flee their homes.
• If additional funding is not urgently received, aid workers will be un- able to reach millions of people at risk of hunger, disease or death.
Information communication technologies (ICTs) are increasingly becoming a defining component of twenty-first century humanitarian response operations during both natural disasters and armed conflict. ICTs are employed in a variety of ways by nongovernmental, governmental, and local communities and actors – a trend which is likely to continue with ever more complex implications for organisations and affected communities.
