Humanitarian Road Convoys Operational Guidelines
The Logistics Cluster supports humanitarian actors in South Sudan with road convoy coordination throughout the dry season. This document outlines operational procedures that convoy participants must follow.
Deadlines – Organisations must strictly adhere to deadlines provided by the Logistics Cluster. All humanitarian road convoy plans and the respective deadlines will be communicated via the Logistics Cluster mailing list.
Rationale and methods to share information, speak out, and challenge impunity in cases of violence against humanitarian action
ATHA is pleased to share a new professional _Toolkit for Responding to Attacks against Humanitarian Action on the Policy Level._ The purpose of the Toolkit is to offer guidance to humanitarian actors for responding to violence against humanitarian action, in order to promote a more protective environment for the provision of humanitarian aid to civilians.
The Republic of South Sudan is the newest country of the world, with a total estimated population of 11,296,000 and 406,000 annual births. Despite facing many challenges, it is a growing country committed to improving the living conditions of their population.
Maternal and child malnutrition is a significant public health problem in South Sudan. Among children aged 6-59 months, 31% are stunted, 28% are underweight, and nearly 23% are acutely malnourished of which 13% are estimated to suffer from moderate acute malnutrition and 10% from severe acute malnutrition.
Background & Rationale
The dynamic and multi-faceted nature of the South Sudanese displacement crisis has created significant challenges for humanitarian information management. As a result of the continued insecurity and overall unpredictability of a sudden onset of humanitarian needs, it is becoming increasingly important to quickly identify and fill information gaps relating to potential areas of severe humanitarian distress in a systematic and timely manner to promote more effective humanitarian response and planning for immediate life-saving activities.
Preserving the civilian and humanitarian character of sites and settlements is fundamental to the protection of civilians fleeing armed conflict. It is, however, increasingly put at risk today by the presence of, or proximity to, fighters and armed activities. Infringements to the civilian and humanitarian character result in major protection concerns for internally displaced people and refugees hosted in the sites and adversely impact humanitarian actors.
Background & Rationale
In countries affected by fragility and conflict, state institutions (i.e. public administration) co-exist among formal and informal arrangements that mirror ineffective power arrangements. These arrangements are products from protracted power struggles between elites struggling to remain in power and control the distribution of rents and resources. The challenges facing situations of fragility and violent conflict are daunting and multidimensional.

This strategy paper outlines the objectives of and criteria for the second standard allocation of the Sudan Humanitarian Fund for 2018, for an amount totaling US$20.3 million.
The creation of ‘friendly spaces’ for women and girls has been a key strategy in the protection and empowerment of women and girls in South-Sudan since conflict re-erupted in the country in December 2013. This document provides guidance on the aims of these spaces, and how they can best be established and managed in the South Sudan context.
The needs of the cluster are solidly linked to displacement as a result of conflict, food insecurity, economic deterioration and to lesser extent, but also, disease outbreak. Populations that are subject to these eventualities will require Shelter/NFI emergency support. The cluster differentiates two contexts: inside of camps, including PoCs and other collective sites, and outside of camps.
The materials contained in this supplementary document complement those found in the existing IRP Guidance Note on Recovery – Health. The discussions and case studies contained herein portray an expanded and oftentimes fresh perspective on many of the issues found in the original guidance note on several new and emerging issues for which there exist best practices and lessons learned.
The Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Protection Mainstreaming Toolkit (hereafter referred to as “Toolkit”) is designed as a companion to the GPC Protection Mainstreaming Training Package (hereafter referred to as “Training Package”). The Training Package is the starting point to understand the concept and principles of “protection mainstreaming”.
The purpose of the Programme Manual for the Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) is to provide partners with information for good programming based on IASC guidance as well as to define minimum programmatic requirements for SHF projects. Guidance specific to the context in Sudan is included when available. All partners are expected to work within the HCT Minimum Operating Standards.
Specific strategic orientations or additional programmatic requirements may be specified in any allocation paper.

2. Background & Rationale
In the rapidly changing context of South Sudan, accurate and timely information can save lives as people can be warned to flee, hide or regroup. Information also plays a crucial role in directing people toward appropriate humanitarian assistance.
Since the onset of the current phase of the South Sudan conflict in December 2013, nearly 3 million people have been displaced. Two million people have fled to neighbouring countries, and another 1.9 million others remain internally displaced. The ongoing conflict in South Sudan, combined with increasing food insecurity, as well as economic crisis, are contributing to heightened protection risks for children.
