SITUATION OVERVIEW

Livestock-related conflict and other localized clashes continued throughout different pockets of the country.

At the same time, unusually heavy rainfalls have led to flooding in multiple locations, affecting close to 1 million people. IOM has supported the flood response, including through the provision of WASH and S/NFI items through the Core Pipeline for partners to distribute to flood affected populations.

Despite some delays, the peace process continued to advance between the government and opposition groups, with signatories to the peace agreement meeting in Juba to discuss progress towards the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS).
