This issue of ACLED Conflict Trends marks a year since ACLED began publishing monthly updates summarising and analysing real-time data on conflict in the African continent. Past issues of Conflict Trends are available online at acleddata.com where analysis has included regional conflict trends, the highest violence states at present and in historical perspective, and states displaying unique or paradigmatic violence profiles.

Increased activity by Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) elements in Tambura County, Western Equatoria State, after the attack on Source Yubu, led the UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) to declare security level 4 in Tambura, resulting in the relocation of all UN and INGO staff. Meanwhile, Ugandan peace negotiators led by Uganda's Minister of Interior, Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, met the LRA leader, Joseph Kony, and his high command on 11 March.
In Southern Sudan, the decades-long internal conflict, which came to an end with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army in January 2005, had a devastating effect on people and resources as well as on governance and the economy. The impact was felt particularly severely in the South, where most of the fighting took place.
- Hopes in a diplomatic solution, after non-renewal of COHA between Government of Uganda and LRA.
- Food security likely to improve in 2007, with a 19 % drop in food aid requirements from last year.
- WFP working to pre-position 42,000 MT of food aid in preparation for the rainy season.
- Nearly 600,000 doses of meningitis vaccines on the way.
The peace talks between the Government and Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) are faltering following demands by the LRA to move the venue of the negotiations from Juba and appoint a new mediator.
Around 8 February, the LRA was spotted crossing the main road Yambio - Nzara - Ezo - Tambura some 20 kilometres west of Nzara. This is a clear shift from their previous westward route, now quite deep into Sudanese territory, about 50 kilometres north of the border.
The general security situation in South Sudan remained stable. The situation in the Malakal area (Upper Nile) continued to stabilize with the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) discussing the option of appointing Gabriel Tang as the Joint Integrated Unit (JIU) - SAF component - Commander. The security level in Malakal and other previously affected parts was reviewed downwards.
