HIGHLIGHTS

  • The South Sudanese Government delegation began consultative talks in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) prior to the African Union (AU) Heads of State Summit in South Africa (16-17 June 2015). The Summit is expected to discuss the proposed new format of the talks including the Troika countries (United States of America, United Kingdom and Norway), the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), China and five other members of the AU.

  • As heavy rains and flooding threaten the Protection of Civilians (POC) site in Bentiu (Unity State), displaced people are being relocated to a larger site with better drainage. The exercise began on 29 May and some 3,841 internally displaced persons (IDPs) from 602 household received new plots. UNHCR, the International Organization of Migration (IOM), DRC, Concern Worldwide and German Agro Action are assisting with the relocation. The United Nations Mission In South Sudan (UNMISS) and the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) are coordinating the activity.
