CCCM National Cluster Update:

When the local authorities in Bentiu requested the humanitarian community relocate the flood affected IDPs currently resident in Bentiu town IDP site A&B to site C. The CCCM Cluster developed due diligence checklist to ensure that when the relocation finally takes place, the affected population is not pressured into accepting a relocation plan that might not address their individual needs and protection concerns. The due diligence ensure that due consultation process was undertaken to ensure IDPs understood the consequence of such proposed solutions. The due diligence also recognized that the state is the primary actor in provision of protection and assistance to the displaced persons and that, the humanitarian community role is not only to support the state in implementing such relocation plans but to ensure that their actions are driven by protection and humanitarian principles, including embedding principles of do no harm and conflict sensitivity is central to relocation process.

Response Overview:

  • Of the over two million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in South Sudan, 1.6 million people are in need of Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) support in 2022. Approximately 900,000 displaced persons live in spontaneous sites or informal settlements or with host communities, around 190,000 are in Protection of Civilian sites (PoC/former PoCs) and more than 250,000 live in collective sites.

  • Unusually extreme flooding, in addition to the upsurge in subnational violence, especially in Jonglei, Unity, Upper Nile, Warrap and Lakes, means that displaced people are expected to remain in the areas where they have taken refuge until conditions improve in their areas of origin. Ensuring that these people continue to receive adequate services, and mitigate against protection concerns and other risks and vulnerabilities, CCCM cluster will continue to maintain an overview of agencies providing services, monitor the quality of their services and identify site level needs and gaps.

  • As of March 2022 more than 500,000 IDPs were reached by 7 CCCM cluster partners who responded in various IDP sites and other displacement locations where they provided IDPs with CCCM services including coordination of service provision, capacity building of site management committees, and monitoring service provisions at site level.
