South Sudan, NP: Sobat Corridor

Projet terminé

Due to continued fighting, civilians especially women and children in the Sobat Corridor are exposed to GBV and child protection concerns such as forced child recruitment and unaccompanied and separated minors (UASMs). NP’s intervention seeks to reduce these protection issues, enhance the communities’ protective capacity and provide peaceful and effective measures to mitigate violence and also facilitate aid delivery to the area.

The prolonged conflict since December 2013 between government and SPLA-IO, has led to forced displacement of civilians into the Sobat Corridor, Upper Nile state. Continued aggression by both parties and insecurity due to inter-communal conflict over grazing land & cattle raids expose women and children to protection risks such as GBV, forced child recruitment & the risk of separation (unaccompanied and separated minors, UASMs). Humanitarian actors also face difficulties in delivering aid due to access constraints, limited coordination etc.
