The Case of IDPs in South Sudan’s Protection of Civilians Sites
The principle of non-refoulement is often regarded as being exclusively applicable in contexts of international cross-border displacement. But while the term refoulement did indeed gain recognition through its inclusion in the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, similar concepts can be found in a far more diverse set of legal frameworks whose protection extends well beyond the refugee sphere.
The Global Early Warning – Early Action (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
The report is part of FAO’s EWEA system, which aims to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action.

A cultural festival has been held in an effort to celebrate diversity and promote peace between groups of people living at the United Nations Protection of Civilians (POC) site in Bentiu after tensions developed between different communities over recent months.
The event, promoting the theme ‘One Culture, One Heritage, One Community, Together for Peace’, was organized by the United Nations Mission in South Sudan’s civil affairs team in the Unity region.

Juba – Jez Goeldi knew something was wrong when he realised that the chaotic hum of the nearby market had suddenly disappeared, leaving him and his colleagues engulfed in an eerie silence. They were inside the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) 12-bed medical facility in Aburoch, in the White Nile, northeastern South Sudan. “The donkeys and chickens were gone, and that told me that the population had yet again been forced to flee,” says Goeldi, the 36-year-old deputy logistics coordinator for MSF. Moments later, the silence was shattered by the pounding of artillery fire.
October 5, 2017 (KHARTOUM) - Ethiopian and Sudanese foreign ministers, Workneh Gebeyehu and Ibrahim Ghandour met with the leader of SPLM-IO in South Africa and discussed ways to achieve peace in South Sudan, said a statement released in Khartoum on Thursday.
The meeting with Riek Machar comes within the framework t preparation of the High- Level Revitalization Forum of all parties to the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (ARCSS).
New York, 5 October 2017 – Boys and girls living in countries affected by armed conflict have been victims of widespread violations in 2016, as documented in the Secretary-General’s Annual Report on Children and Armed Conflict released today and covering the period from January to December 2016.
Below-average rain recorded in West Africa, while above-average rain persists over Eastern Africa
Inconsistent and below-normal rainfall since mid-August has increased moisture deficits and led to abnormal dryness for parts of southern Burkina Faso and northern Ghana.
Recent heavy rains have caused the Niger and Benue Rivers in Nigeria to flood. Reports indicate that 100,000 people were displaced by flooding and many crops have been destroyed. Continued rain will keep rivers high.
The metastasizing crisis in South Sudan requires a new strategy for achieving a sustainable peace. Conditions on the ground are unbearable for large swathes of South Sudan’s population, and regional peacemaking efforts are not delivering results.
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been sheltering at the Bentiu protection of civilian (PoC) site since December 2013. There are currently 115,020 IDPs seeking protection in the site. Humanitarian partners and UNMISS are working with the communities to improve the living conditions in the site.
