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.
The Global Humanitarian Overview
Is the world’s most comprehensive, authoritative and evidence-based assessment of humanitarian needs;
Is based on detailed analysis of wide-ranging data from many different sources, and face-to-face interviews with hundreds of thousands of people directly affected by humanitarian crises across the globe;
APERÇU DE LA CRISE
Depuis l’élaboration du PRH en novembre 2016, la situation sécuritaire et humanitaire en RCA s'est considérablement détériorée. Plus de 500 000 personnes sont déplacées, un niveau qui n’avait été atteint qu’en août 2014 avant le déploiement de la mission onusienne de maintien de la paix (MINUSCA). Le nombre de personnes déplacées est passé de 402 000 en janvier 2017 à plus de 500 000 en mai 2017. Soit une augmentation de 25% en cinq mois et de plus de 30% depuis le lancement du PRH.
Launched in 2005, ProCap aims to enhance the humanitarian system’s protection response through the deployment of Senior Protection Advisers and the delivery of inter-agency protection capacity trainings. The strategic direction of the project is reviewed regularly to ensure that it responds to changing needs and gaps within the international humanitarian response. An external evaluation in 2007, a Strategic Review in 2009, and an external evaluation in 2011 all confirmed the continued relevance of the project.

Summary of Requirements for a Comprehensive Refugee Response in Uganda
Uganda hosts over 1.2 million refugees in 28 settlements in 12 districts (including Kampala) where refugees coexist peacefully with their host communities. The Ugandan model provides refugees with exemplary prospects for dignity, normality and self-reliance, and creates a conducive environment for pursuing development-oriented approaches.
Foreword by the Humanitarian Coordinator
Summary of needs, targets & requirements
In 2017, an estimated 4.8 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Sudan. This represents a reduction of one million compared to 2016, attributed largely to a reduction in the number of people in need of food and livelihoods assistance compared to 2015, when the El Niño event impacted agricultural performance.
This Emergency Appeal is launched on a preliminary basis and seeks a total of 4,184,769 Swiss francs to enable the IFRC to support the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) deliver assistance and support 63,540 people (South Sudanese refugees) for 12 months. The response will focus on the following areas of interventions: health; water sanitation and hygiene (WASH); shelter (including Household non-food items); and National Society capacity building.

REGIONAL STRATEGIC OVERVIEW
Latest Developments in South Sudan
This revised Emergency Appeal seeks 2,670,638 Swiss francs (increased from 690,325 Swiss francs) to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Uganda Red Cross Society (URCS) in assisting 136,666 people (an increase from 30,000 people) for 12 months. The expanded operation will focus on the following sectors: water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), health and National Society capacity building. It also reflects a substantial increase in the target population and number of activities to be implemented.
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.
Despite widespread emergency response in Ethiopia’s agriculture sector last year to the El Niño-induced drought, humanitarian needs remain high in 2017. New threats to food security are emerging – including severe drought in southern and southeastern pastoral areas and a growing refugee crisis in Gambella Region. Livelihood recovery will remain slow for El Niño-affected farmers, especially those in areas where harvests were below average.

THE CRISIS: Famine Crisis in South Sudan
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.
The 2017 South Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) appeals for USD 1.6 billion to target 5.8 million people for assistance. Developed in line with the HRP and the framework of the IASC Clusters, IOM’s 2017 CAP requests USD 76,852,706. The appeal highlights emergency humanitarian assistance based on IOM’s existing capacity, focusing on the most urgent needs of the affected population.
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.
