2011 has been a momentous year for South Sudan. It has been a privilege to stand with the South Sudanese people as they witnessed the birth of their new nation – from the decisive independence referendum in January, the end of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement period, to the country’s longawaited entry into the community of nations on 9 July. The Republic of South Sudan has now started the long and challenging task of building a new state. The humanitarian community is committed to supporting the government and its people as they embark on this endeavour.
The 2012 Consolidated Appeal Process is the product of this collective commitment. It reflects the combined efforts of South Sudan’s humanitarian partners – the government’s humanitarian institutions, UN agencies, national and international non-governmental organizations, and the donor community. It provides a blueprint for ensuring that, over the coming year, we can save lives and support vulnerable communities as effectively and efficiently as possible.
