- South Sudan: 7 years after independence, humanitarian needs are unprecedented
A two-person MapAction team flew to Kampala, Uganda last week to provide mapping and information management support to humanitarian teams responding to a major refugee crisis in the region. This follows a recent upsurge in conflict in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), causing significant displacement of people into Uganda, a country that is already contending with a large influx of refugees from South Sudan. Around 1.9 million people have fled DRC since the start of 2017, with 242,000 being hosted in Uganda.
MapAction has been working on a long-term project with humanitarian partners to establish settlement datasets for South Sudan to facilitate relief efforts since March, and is now entering the final stage of monitoring the impact of the work.
Juba, 17 Mar – Two MapAction volunteers are travelling to South Sudan to provide mapping support for the United Nations and humanitarian partners.
This is MapAction’s second deployment to South Sudan, following an earlier mission in 2014. The situation in-country continues to be of acute concern. Many communities are living in precarious conditions, under threat of conflict and without health services or clean water. The United Nations estimates that 1.5 million people have been displaced and 4.1 million will need life-saving support in 2015.
Estimates of people in need, internally displaced and food security outlook
Juba, 24 Jan – MapAction has deployed two mapping experts to South Sudan at the request of the United Nations.
Wide-spreading fighting has extended across the country, affecting hundreds of thousands of civilians. The crisis is exacerbating what was already a challenging humanitarian situation, with 4.4 million people requiring humanitarian assistance prior to recent violence.
