Contexte Renewed fighting in July 2016 has further worsened the already dire Humanitarian situation, marked by continuous population displacement and a strongly deteriorating economic and food security situation. Over 3.87 million are displaced and over 6 million face severe food insecurity. Humanitarian efforts to effectively respond to the situation are heavily constrained by insecurity, access constraints, information gaps and the existence of arbitrary and restrective government policies and negative perceptions that obstruct NGO work. 
Objectifs To contribute to an effective and principled delivery of humanitarian and development assistance by national and international NGOs in South Sudan. 
Groupes cibles
  • Both National and Internal NGOs
  • Indirectly, South Sudanese communities 
Effets à moyen terme Improved NGO engagement in South Sudan in the delivery of humanitarian and development assistance.
