OVERVIEW: APRIL REVISION
The South Sudan Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP) 2017 articulates the regional protection and humanitarian needs of an anticipated 2.13 million South Sudanese refugees by 31 December 2017. The RRRP outlines the inter-agency response strategy and financial requirements of 58 agencies responding across six countries of asylum: Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo,
Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
The April revision of the RRRP was prompted by larger than anticipated refugee movements into Sudan and Uganda in 2017. The end of year planning figure for Sudan was surpassed in March and if current trends continue, Uganda will exceed its planning figure during the second quarter of 2017. The revised RRRP contains updated response plans for Sudan and Uganda to address the increased needs in these two host countries.
