Ongoing conflict in South Sudan continues to obstruct the international community’s delivery of aid. Aid organisations regularly reconsider operations due to insecurity. Conflict has also deepened the country’s crisis, displacing millions and bringing the economy to its knees amongst widespread hunger.
Amidst these challenges, UKAid is saving hundreds of thousands of lives and protecting future generations. The UK monitors conflict dynamics on a monthly basis to ensure our aid is conflict sensitive and to minimise harm. The UK is the leading donor for an external ‘Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility’ that provides a range of implementing partners with the expertise required to deliver aid in a conflict sensitive way.
