South Sudan, REACH: Area of Origin

Projet terminé

Constant population movements in Southern Unity due to insecurity have hampered humanitarian access to information about IDPs in many locations. REACH’s response seeks to bridge the information gap and provide a better understanding of the IDP situation in Southern Unity for humanitarians on the ground, to ensure effective and informed humanitarian response to the affected population.

Violent conflict broke out in December 2013, displacing over 2 million people. Southern and Central Unity are some of the most affected areas, having experienced heavy fighting. As a result insecurity and hunger have caused constant population movements. These, coupled with the poor roads have made humanitarian access and response to critical needs of affected populations challenging.


To promote a better evidence-based IDP crisis response and contingency planning in Southern and Central Unity State through coordinated information management.
