2015 was a year of transformation for the Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC). The adoption of the ETC2020 Strategy in the first half of the year, radically expanding the vision, scope and approach of the cluster, set the network on a much more impactful, but challenging, trajectory. 2015 was characterised by the adoption and commenced implementation of ETC2020 as well as the most concurrent emergencies ever responded to; and the invaluable contributions of its members and partners without which, the ETC would not exist.
The figures for forced migration are staggering and unprecedented. And yet the movement of people is a symptom of a crisis, not the cause. Until there is a global reduction in violence and conflict, the problem will continue to get worse.

You can read all the details in our recently released annual report. Dorcas is thankful for all the donations and funds that made all of this possible.
A Message From Assistant Secretary Puneet Talwar
An Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluation (IAHE) was conducted in South Sudan in April 2015 under the auspices of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Transformative Agenda for the global reform of humanitarian action in large-scale emergencies. This was the first such evaluation of a response to a conflict situation and complex political emergency.
Maban County is located in Upper Nile State in the North East of the Republic of South Sudan (RSS). The refugee caseload is composed of Sudanese fleeing from the conflict in Blue Nile State, residing in four camps: Doro, Yusuf Batil, Gendrassa and Kaya (previously Jamam). The region is a semi-arid desert with sparse vegetation and no surface water. The climate is harsh with extreme temperatures during the dry season and flooding at the rainy season.
The outbreak of violence between armed groups in South Kordofan in June 2011, which later spread to Blue Nile State in September 2011, caused thousands of people to flee their homes – the vast majority of which crossed the border to neighbouring South Sudan. While those from South Kordofan primarily fled to Pariang County, in Northern Unity State, refugees from Blue Nile crossed into Maban County, Upper Nile State.
We never have someone talking to us about these things!
