- Test cross-line road operations successfully ongoing in Jonglei state.
- Cross-line road movements in Jonglei have been constrained for nearly three years now. In the second quarter of 2013, rains cut off land accessibility between Bor and other parts of the state. Since December 2013, limitations on cross-line road transportation have restricted WFP’s ability to deliver food assistance in the area. Last week, on 05 February, WFP secured necessary clearances and sent out a test convoy carrying 100 mt of food from Bor, destined for Pieri and crossing several battle lines. The trucks reached Yuai on 11 February. The ability to deliver via trucks in these locations could translate to savings of over US$50 million.
