The east of Ukraine is experiencing its fourth year of armed conflict between the Government of Ukraine’s (GoU) forces and armed opposition groups in the contested territory of Donbas. Ongoing fighting is concentrated around the contact line separating the government controlled areas (GCA) and non-government controlled areas (NGCA) of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.
The outbreak of conflict between armed groups in South Sudan’s Deim Zubier town on the first week of April displaced thousands of civilians to multiple locations in the western parts of the country. Due to the rapid onset of conflict, little is known about the displacement routes or needs of the affected populations.
The continuation of conflict since December 2013 has created a complex humanitarian crisis in the country, restricting humanitarian access and hindering the flow of information required by aid partners to deliver humanitarian assistance to populations in need. To address information gaps facing the humanitarian response in South Sudan, REACH employs its Area of Knowledge (AoK) methodology to collect relevant information in hardto-reach areas to inform humanitarian planning and interventions outside formal settlement sites.
