REGIONAL STRATEGIC OVERVIEW
Latest Developments in South Sudan
The situation of the IDPs in South Sudan and the refugees in the neighbouring countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda has changed, in some cases dramatically, since the first Regional Refugee Response Plan (Inter-Agency Appeal for the South Sudanese Refugee Emergency, Jan-Dec 2014).
With a new Secretary General now officially confirmed as well as other senior officers, the Uganda Red Cross Society (URCS) is in a position to face the challenges that lie ahead. The rationalisation of the refugee operation in Mbarara and the restructuring recently implemented by the URCS, with Federation support will advance the development process while ensuring that the refugees continue to receive quality assistance.
