The Core Pipeline (CP) managed by UNICEF and IOM, serves as one of key lifesaving response modalities in South Sudan through the provision of critical WASH items across the country, supporting partners in implementing timely and effective WASH interventions. This factsheet highlights the anticipated spikes moving into 2021, brought on by interventions planned to mitigate the needs highlighted in the release of the latest South Sudan Integrated Food Security Classification (IPC), through the WASH Cluster Response Scale Up 6 counties and beyond, the Floods Preparedness and Response Plan, during which the WASH Cluster Phase 1 response is anticipating a caseload of 132,000 HH (858,000 Individuals), and the Covid-19 Preparedness and Response Strategy.
As of 28th June, the IOM CP received $1.3 M USD, remaining with an 86% funding gap, and as of 30th June, the UNICEF CP received $2.6 M USD, remaining with a 71% funding gap. The WASH Cluster estimates that US$ 9.4M is required in order to ensure the replenishment of the Core Pipeline with key items to scale up the response to food insecurity and prepare for the flood season.
