OVERVIEW OF THE CRISIS
As the conflict in South Sudan enters its fifth year in 2018, the humanitarian crisis has continued to intensify and expand due to the compounding effects of widespread violence and the deteriorating economic situation.
Drought in the Horn of Africa
Drought situation and impact
The ongoing drought is widespread, and the situation is deteriorating faster than even expected. Conditions are extremely worrying across southern and southeastern Ethiopia, northern and coastal Kenya, almost all of Somalia, southeastern South Sudan and northeastern Uganda.
World Vision (WV) is seeking US$92 million to provide life-saving assistance to 2.2 million drought affected people in Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan and Somalia between February 2017 – July 2017
• Tens of thousands of children could starve to death as famine, starvation, food and water shortages affect 22 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan and Somalia.
Under the 2017 South Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan, humanitarian partners aim to respond to the most life-threatening needs of 5.8 million people out of an estimated 7.5 million in need of humanitarian protection and assistance across South Sudan.

They joined some 120,000 South Sudanese refugees who remained in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda after the 20-year civil war with "north" Sudan, as well as an estimated 350,000 South Sudanese who remained in Sudan after the secession of South Sudan in 2011.
The 2016 South Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan requests $1.3 billion for 114 humanitarian partners to respond to the most life-threatening needs of 5.1 million people out of an estimated 6.1 million in need of protection and assistance across South Sudan.
Changes in context and Needs
Economic downturn is compounding the consequences of conflict
• Intensified violent conflict is destroying the viability of communities and generating new and recurrent displacements of vulnerable populations.
• Economic stress is generating inflation and shortages of critical goods and services.
• Deepening austerity is further threatening publicly managed social services, including the public health system.

REGIONAL STRATEGIC OVERVIEW
Les violences qui ont éclaté au Soudan du Sud en décembre 2013 ont fait peser un fardeau supplémentaire sur une sous-région déjà très instable, en proie à d’incessants confl¬its et déplacements de population.
The eruption of violence in South Sudan in December 2013 placed an additional burden on an already volatile subregion, which continues to suffer from conflict and displacement.
Nine months into the South Sudan crisis, there were approximately 1.3 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and more than 450,000 new South Sudanese refugees, who fled to Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
Regional Response Appeal to assist displaced populations
Following the South Sudan crisis which has left many people killed and displaced, NRC has launched a regional emergency appeal to make it possible for a meaningful humanitarian action to take place.
During a recent visit to Awerial, NRC Secretary General Jan Egeland witnessed the poor conditions that internally displaced persons were living in, with multiple families clustered around every tree or bush seeking shelter from harsh climate.
