Description
Communities across South Sudan, especially women and children, were hit hard in 2020 by the multiple shocks of intensified conflict and sub-national violence, a second consecutive year of major flooding, and the impacts of COVID-19 related restrictions on livelihoods.
Humanitarian organizations worked tirelessly to meet people’s priority needs, guided by three strategic objectives set in the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP). Among the more than 200 HRP partners operating across the country, nearly 60 per cent were South Sudanese non-governmental organizations.
By the end of the year, some 7.3 million women, men and children were reached with some form of assistance or protection through the plan.
The humanitarian response was hampered by sub-national violence, violence against humanitarian personnel and assets, bureaucratic impediments, operational interference, and COVID-19 related restrictions on movement.
The response achievements were enabled by generous donor contributions. The response plan was 65 per cent funded, with US$1.2 billion received toward the $1.9 billion appeal.

Description
South Sudan’s refugee population stands at 2.2 million, the highest on the continent despite the signing of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) in September 2018. The Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity of South Sudan was established on 22 February 2020. While this event marks an important development to improve prospects for viable comprehensive solutions for the millions of South Sudan’s forcibly displaced, several critical issues are still to be resolved during the pre-and transitional phases prescribed by the R-ARCSS.

While some spontaneous returns have been recorded, these are in large part pendular movements prompted by a different set of factors which include dwindling livelihood opportunities in countries of asylum and changing perceptions about security in South Sudan. Over 70 per cent of these returnees have not been able to return to their prior places of habitual residence. UNHCR and its partners in South Sudan do not have access to many return areas due to insecurity. Sample intention surveys conducted in 2019 in all asylum countries have shown that a majority of South Sudanese refugees do not intend to return in the near future. In fact in 2019, over 74,000 South Sudanese new arrivals were recorded in Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic.

Description
More than one million dollars’ worth of humanitarian supplies and assets were looted and destroyed during armed attacks in May, impacting the delivery of assistance to an estimated 131,000 people in the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA).
In May, FSL Cluster partners reached 224,000 people in GPAA with food assistance. This represents 49 per cent of the people targeted. It is part of a double distribution for May and June and will be completed in June. Sub-national violence led to the suspension of food distributions in Gumuruk in early May.
The FSL Cluster reached 107,000 households in the six priority 1 counties with dry season livelihood support in May. This represents 63 per cent of the people targeted.
WASH partners reached 81,700 people, out of 175,000 targeted, with WASH/non-food item kits and basic hygiene messaging in communities affected by high global acute malnutrition and/or high incidence of diarrheal diseases.
The Health Cluster provided consultations to 65,000 people in the six priority 1 counties in May. Trainings in comprehensive management of rape cases and integrated disease surveillance and response system were provided.
Nutrition partners treated 13,000 severe acute malnutrition, 30,000 moderate acute malnutrition children and 26,000 pregnant and lactating women, in the six priority 1 counties during the reporting period.
The Logistics Cluster transported 180 metric tons of humanitarian cargo by air in May to support partners in priority areas inaccessible by road, mostly in Akobo and Pibor. Some 480 square metre of common storage space was made available to the humanitarian community in Akobo.
In May, Protection Cluster partners reached 6,270 people with general protection interventions including through protection by presence, protection monitoring, awareness raising, protection and cash assistance. More than 9,200 people were reached with various gender-based violence services, including Women and Girls Friendly Space activities and 56 people received psychosocial support or case management. Dignity kits were distributed to 3,160 women and girls. Child Protection partners provided services to 10,250 people, including 3,700 girls and 3,630 boys through case management, family tracing and reunification services for unaccompanied and separated children, and community-based psychosocial support to children and caregivers.
