• Peace celebrations commemorating the Revitalized Agreement on Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) took place on 31 October in Juba. Participants included Presidents of Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia and the Prime Minister of Egypt, as well as representatives of the African Union, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the United Nations.
In South Sudan, ICRC has been reconnecting families for over 30 years through satellite phone calls and Red Cross Messages – letters that share news between family members.
Phone calls are offered in various displacement sites where the Red Cross is present as well as whenever teams carry out an activity—like a distribution of food or household items—where communication channels are inexistent. The phone calls are free to anywhere in the world and last three minutes long for each person.
Eastern Lakes continued to be affected by intercommunal violence and cattle raids, particularly in areas near county borders. Throughout the third quarter of 2018, most indicators remained relatively low but stable, which suggests that critical barriers to access to food and basic services persisted in the region. Furthermore, food insecurity remained high, particularly in Yirol East and Yirol West Counties, as the lack of rain further added to the challenges in crop production between July and September 2018.

In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a report describing the global landscape in 2040. The authors predicted severe food shortages, devastating wildfires and the dying off of coral reefs en masse. The report warns that, by 2040, global temperatures are expected to rise 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, meaning that most people alive today will see the dramatic effects of climate change within their lifetime.
Agojo opened in 2016 in response to the influx of South Sudanese refugees fleeing insecurity in their country of origin. It is located 16km west of Adjumani town and was established in order to ease the congestion at Nyumanzi Transit Centre, which was severely overstretched at the time.
South Sudanese refugees were thus relocated to Agojo where over 3,000 of them have now settled. The settlement is no longer receiving new arrivals.
Gaps & Challenges
Although insecurity prevails in many parts of South Sudan, there are clear pockets of stability where a resilience building and livelihoods approach is essential to strengthening local communities’ and farmers’ capacities. In these areas, WFP is implementing Food Assistance for Assets (FFA) to meet short term hunger gaps while helping households build resilience against future shocks and stresses.

Message from our Regional Director
Despite numerous humanitarian challenges in 2017 in Africa, there were also a number of heart-warming accomplishments. A case in point, was when a local response of Red Crescent teams—and other partners—curbed Somalia's cholera outbreak through the power of local volunteers and shared international expertise. In terms of support to our members, 36 National Societies were able to kick start initiatives that built their capacity through seed grants.

SANTA BARBARA, California, Nov 8 2018 (IPS) - While its conflict ended in 2007, Northern Uganda struggles with its legacy as one of the most aid-dependent regions in the world.
Linda Cole, founder of African Women Rising (AWR), who has vast experience working in conflict and post-conflict regions, realized that programs don’t always reach the people who need it the most: those living in extreme poverty.

BESOINS HUMANITAIRES ET CHIFFRES CLÉS
The continuation of conflict since December 2013 has created a complex humanitarian crisis in the country, restricting humanitarian access and hindering the flow of information required by aid partners to deliver humanitarian assistance to populations in need. To address information gaps facing the humanitarian response in South Sudan,
REACH employs its Area of Knowledge (AoK) methodology to collect relevant information in hardto-reach areas to inform humanitarian planning and interventions outside formal settlement sites.
