South Sudan at a crossroads: humanitarian response in a changing context

Humanitarian needs are still strong in South Sudan, despite the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between Sudan and South Sudan in 2005.Since 2011, over 187,000 refugees have arrived in Unity and Upper Nile States from Sudan and continuing inter-communal violence in Jonglei has affected more than 170,000 Southern Sudanese. The 2013 Consolidated Appeal for South Sudan estimates that an estimated 4.6 million people will need food and livelihoods support this year.

To address these issues, the Overseas Development Institute will seek to examine the humanitarian challenges that remain in South Sudan, from the drivers of conflict in Jonglei to constraints on humanitarian access. Speakers based in London and Juba, will reflect on these challenges based partly on their own experiences, through a live videocast.

This event will happen on May, 22nd  2013 11:00 - 13:00 (GMT+01 (BST))
