Cattle-related violence and other conflict continued in multiple locations throughout the country, leading to further displacement and delays in delivering services in those areas. Flooding also continued to pose problems for communities in different parts of the country, particularly in Jonglei and Warrap, demonstrating the importance of building resilience to climate-related shocks.

Despite some delays, the peace process continued to advance between the government and opposition groups with signatories to the peace agreement meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to discuss progress towards the implementation of R-ARCSS.
