Between May 2016 and September 2017, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster, with technical support from the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC), developed and delivered a 2 stage project in 5 different countries targeted at supporting opportunities for women’s equal and meaningful participation in camp governance structures.
As part of a global-level project aiming at reducing gender-based violence (GBV) risks in camps and camp-like settings, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Global Cluster sought to understand how women’s participation in governance structures could contribute to reducing risks of GBV. Increasing women’s participation is an important path to improving gender equality and women’s empowerment.
As of 30 June 2018, the total number of South Sudanese refugees in Kenya is 114,492. At the end of June 2018, 94 percent of the South Sudanese refugees in Kenya resided in Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei Settlement, with a smaller precentage in Dadaab as well as urban areas such as Nairobi, Nakuru, Kitale and other areas. Refugees crossed to Kenya through the Nadapal Border in Turkana County, where Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei Settlement are situated. Out of the 58.2 percent of South Sudanese refugees in Kakuma, 88,309 are women and children with heightened protection risks.
The ongoing conflict and violence in South Sudan in the first half of 2018 further contributed to the continued internal displacement and outflow of refugees, further exacerbating the humanitarian situation.
There has been a notably slower rate of new arrivals in 2018. As of 30 June, a total of 24,447 South Sudanese refugees have newly arrived, with East Darfur and South Darfur States continuing to receive the largest flows. At the same time, roll-out of biometric registration across the response has allowed for increasingly precise population figures. The total number of South Sudanese refugees as of mid-year stands at 768,125 individuals.
The South Sudanese remain the largest refugee population in Ethiopia, totaling 445,481 persons at the end of June 2018. Continued violence in Upper Nile, Jonglei and Unity states resulted in 19,195 South Sudanese arrivals in the first half of 2018. The Ethiopian Government has maintained an open door asylum policy and granted prima facie refugee status to South Sudanese refugees.
The beginning of the year was marked by an escalation of violence in villages of Haut-Mbomou and Mbomou prefectures. However, Obo was calm and the refugee population remained stable. As of 30 June 2018, the South Sudanese refugee population is 2,477 persons.
Since the end of 2017, around 17,000 new internally displaced persons arrived in Obo in need of protection and assistance.
1.0 Executive Summary
This report highlights the findings of the final independent evaluation of the “Surveillance and Evaluation Team (SET) and Multi-Sectoral Emergency Team (MET): An Integrated Emergency Response in South Sudan” project which was conducted in the months of August and September 2018.
This study, conducted as part of the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) in Conflict and Humanitarian Crises programme funded by the UK government, explores how programmes and policies to prevent and respond to VAWG have been integrated and addressed within post-conflict state-building policy and programming; and how, in conflict-affected countries, VAWG is related to efforts to achieve peace and stability.

DRA: working for increased impact
The new DRA Impact Report provides a summary of our activities during 2017 – including details of joint humanitarian responses in 11 countries.
The Dutch Relief Alliance (DRA) was established in 2015 to improve the effectiveness of the national humanitarian effort. Increased collaboration and a strong commitment to both innovation and the priorities of the UN-endorsed Grand Bargain are at the core of all DRA activities – allowing for humanitarian responses with increased impact.
Securing long-term peace in South Sudan requires much more than deals between political leaders, according to a new study of the deeply troubled young country whose seventh anniversary of independence falls today.
As the world waits to see whether the latest peace agreement will help halt South Sudan's decline, the new report argues that work towards such national-level political agreements must be complemented by local and regional peacebuilding and owned by the people of South Sudan.

This report shares Oxfam’s experience with a water treatment plant community-led operator in Juba, South Sudan. It contributes to the debate on the role that communities can play in the process of managing water supply systems amid protracted crises. The report gives guidance on how to support professionalization of community services by providing business, governance and institutonal support, and calls on donors and implementing agencies to develop WASH programmes which consider medium-term institutional support that ensures sustainability and pro-poor accessibility.

In 2013, the world’s newest nation—the Republic of South Sudan—descended into civil war. External actors moved quickly to convene peace talks under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), leading to a comprehensive peace deal in August 2015. But the agreement unraveled just a year later, before it could be implemented, and the war metastasized.
