Parties to the September 2018 peace deal have delayed on further sub-national appointments and the implementation of other key aspects of the agreement while the transitional government grapples with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, conflict has persisted at the national, sub-national, and local levels, driven – at least in part – by continued contestation over land and authority. Flooding and the accompanying displacement, along with rapid economic decline, could further drive conflict in certain areas, particularly the Equatoria Region
