The Current Situation

Currently, the crisis directly affects three States namely: Jonglei, Upper Nile and Unity. Four other States namely Central Equatoria, Lakes, Warrap and Eastern Equatoria are indirectly affected by virtue of population displacement into them. According to the latest situation report issued by UNOCHA on 10 April 2014, an estimated 817,711 have been displaced internally and an estimated 270,000 refugees into neighbouring countries of Uganda, DRC, Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia. Although most of the conflict affected areas remained calm during the last few weeks, the security situation remains precarious and this has resulted in the restriction of humanitarian response mainly to the United Nations Mission to South Sudan (UNMISS) camps in Juba, Bor, Malakal and Bentiu) and Mingkaman, Awerial County of Lakes States. An estimated 6% of the overall IDP caseload are currently being hosted in Protection of Civilian (PoC) areas in these camps (OCHA, 10 April 2014).
