FOREWORD BY THE HUMANITARIAN COORDINATOR
(Juba, 13 December 2018): The humanitarian community in South Sudan has today launched an appeal for US$1.5 billion to provide urgent and life-saving assistance to 5.7 million people affected by conflict, hunger and displacement.
Alain Noudéhou, the Humanitarian Coordinator for South Sudan, said: “As we prepare to enter 2019, South Sudan remains in the grip of a serious humanitarian crisis. The cumulative effects of years of conflict and violence against civilians has destroyed people’s homes and livelihoods.
World Humanitarian Data and Trends presents global- and country-level data-and-trend analysis about humanitarian crises and assistance. Its purpose is to consolidate this information and present it in an accessible way, providing policymakers, researchers and humanitarian practitioners with an evidence base to support humanitarian policy decisions and provide context for operational decisions.
JUBA, South Sudan, December 13, 2018 – Fifteen thousand children remain separated from their families or missing, five years after conflict first broke out in South Sudan. More than four million people have been uprooted by the fighting, the majority of them children. Since the conflict began UNICEF and partners have reunited close to 6,000 children with their parents or caregivers.
The Ministry of Health (MoH), WHO and partners continue to respond to the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. By using proven public health measures as well as new tools at hand (immunization and therapeutics), WHO remains confident the outbreak can be contained and brought to an end, despite multifaceted challenges.

A series of special projects funded by the United Nations Mission in South Sudan are improving the lives of communities across the country by providing access to clean water, education and healthcare, safe houses for vulnerable women, and strengthening the justice system to hold perpetrators of sexual violence to account.
Nineteen districts in Sindh and 11 districts in Balochistan province are facing moderate to severe drought with below average rainfall from June to November. The lack of water puts agriculture and livestock at risk.
There is no data on the amount of people affected by drought. Over 600 children have died this year in drought-hit Thar, Sindh province due to contaminated water and malnutrition. Health and livelihood concerns are high.
In 2018, the crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) drastically worsened, spreading to previously unaffected areas and impacting the Great Lakes region. The ongoing conflicts across much of eastern and central DRC continue to cause significant displacement, damage to property and tragic loss of human life.

KEY DEVELOPMENTS ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
From July to September 2018, the Education Cluster provided access to education in emergency (EiE) services to 640,729 children and young people (375,880 boys and young men, 264,849 girls and young women) from internally displaced populations (IDPs) and host communities. This equates to 95 per cent of the annual target for the cluster.
Following the outbreak of violence in Juba in early 2016, the conflict in South Sudan and especially the Greater Equatoria region (Western, Central and Eastern Equatoria states) escalated. Many areas of Western Equatoria State are largely inaccessible to humanitarian actors due to insecurity. As a result, only limited information is available on the humanitarian situation outside of a few large towns and displacement sites.
