The humanitarian situation in South Sudan remains critical since the conflict broke out in December 2013. Despite the TGNU, insecurity, the deteriorating economic situation, and bad politics continue to pose a great challenge to aid delivery. The NGO Forum plays a central role in addressing issues affecting international and national NGOs; it also provides independent security information. It is the main source of reliable security advice for NGOs in South Sudan.


The NGO Forum contributes to effective and principled delivery of humanitarian interventions in South Sudan.
