In its fourth year, the protracted crisis in the country continues to affect vulnerable populations across South Sudan. In early 2017, the crisis was exacerbated by the onset of famine in large parts of the country. Furthermore, the cholera outbreak that started in July 2016 continued to affect a population already weakened by conflict and malnutrition.

An estimated 4.9 million people faced severe food insecurity in the first quarter of 2017. This number increased to an estimated 5.5 million people at the height of the lean season from May to July 2017. The Greater Nile region was particularly affected. However, protracted insecurity, leading to large numbers of the population fleeing the area, have also stalled farming activities for several years and considerably reduced animal productivity in the Greater Equatoria region, which had prior to December 2013 been the breadbasket of the country. 

In 2017, the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) stood at 1.86 million, while 2.1 million South Sudanese had fled to neighbouring countries. Of the IDPs, a total of 269,723 reside in Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites, which are found in eight of the ten states of South Sudan. In 2017, renewed and expanded conflict has resulted in new displacement in the Equatoria region with protracted and multiple displacement in already conflict affected areas in the Greater Upper Nile region (where more than 375,000 people are displaced) and Western Bahr el Ghazel (where almost 50,000 are displaced within Wau town).  The total population of the Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites, now nearly 221,301, is higher than that at the same time in 2016. With some PoCs entering their fifth year of existence, achieving a healthy, safe, and dignified living environment in the sites remains a challenge.

Insecurity, resulting from the conflict, and inaccessibility, due to lack of infrastructure and access restrictions imposed by authorities, posed major challenges to IOM South Sudan’s activities. Despite of this, IOM South Sudan continued to provide the crisis-affected populations with critical life-saving services in the areas of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), Health, Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM), Mental Health and Psychosocial Support, and the provision of shelter/non-food items (S/NFI). The IOM South Sudan managed Logistics and Common Transport System (CTS) provided critical transportation and storage services to over 89 humanitarian partners.

The ongoing crisis in South Sudan is expected to continue unabated in 2018. Large parts of the population are expected to face continued displacement. IOM South Sudan will therefore continue to exert efforts to address this complex and protracted displacement situation in collaboration with the humanitarian partners. Where security allows, IOM will continue to encourage the return and recovery of IDPs.

South Sudan faces deep migration challenges due to vast and porous borders, lack of appropriate legal frameworks, poor infrastructure and weak law enforcement capacity. The country is a mixed migration transit route, used by people travelling to Europe through the Central Mediterranean route and to South Africa through the southern migratory route.

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 3,233,448 IDPS and host community members receive humanitarian assistance, 250,000 individuals including host communities are supported with activities to support community stabilization and recovery, and 500 immigration officers
