The American people’s compassion and generosity have saved more than 16 million lives and brought us closer than ever to controlling the HIV/AIDS pandemic – community by community, country by country.
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.
