Description: A forgotten war: South Sudan
Experts views on humanitarian, security and development challenges
Wednesday 8 March 2017
South Sudan is experiencing the second deadliest conflict on the planet after Syria, and yet it is invisible to many. Since the eruption of the civil war in 2013, thousands of people have been killed, and over 4 million people have been displaced within South Sudan and the neighboring countries. The humanitarian and security situation is dire and deteriorating day by day. The UN peacekeeping mission is struggling to protect civilians in the war-torn country and the international community in general lacks a robust response to the crisis. The collapsing economy is worsening food shortages and South Sudan’s inflation rate peaked at 835 percent last year. Oil, which accounted for 98 percent of government revenue, fetches about half the price it did in 2011 when South Sudan gained independence. Some argue that the international community has failed South Sudan.
This seminar explores the current peacekeeping, humanitarian and economic challenges in South Sudan. It will also analyze the regional and domestic political drivers of South Sudan’s civil war. It will shed light upon what options are available to the international community to help solve the conflict and what should be done in the near future to protect the millions of civilians affected by the civil war.

Description: “My child has not eaten since the morning. Now she is weak and I can feel it. I am nervous. It is better for me to be hungry than my child,” a mother explains. We are giving life-saving support to her daughter in Aweil State, where women and children are facing a severe hunger crisis.
“The situation is extremely bad and if we don’t do enough to mitigate the situation, we will go to the catastrophe phase,” UNICEF’s Nutrition Officer Judy tells us. Together with partners we’re working very hard to mitigate the situation and to be there for every child. We’re aiming to reach over 200,000 severely malnourished children with life-saving treatment in 2017.

Description: The President has proposed a budget to slash lifesaving U.S. foreign assistance. This funding has long been a key pillar in our nation's leadership role in saving lives and bringing about a safer, more prosperous and more equitable world. Slashing these programs – which make up just one percent of the U.S. federal budget, or one penny on the dollar – wouldn’t balance the budget or pay for significant new domestic spending. But it would have a disastrous impact on the lives of millions of women, girls and families worldwide. It's not too late to reverse course. This proposal does not have to become law. Only Congress has the power to protect these lifesaving programs. But they won't act unless they hear from you. Tell Congress today: Foreign assistance is #WorthThePenny. Don't put this lifesaving aid on the chopping block. Go to http://www.care.org to sign the petition.
