IOM Appeals for USD 190.5 Million to Support Humanitarian and Development Responses in South Sudan

Juba – The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has launched a Consolidated Appeal 2023 through which it is seeking USD 190,568,596.19 to meet the needs of internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, host community and migrants in South Sudan.

The Consolidated Appeal recognizes the significant needs that persist across South Sudan as highlighted in the 2023 Humanitarian Needs Overview. Through humanitarian assistance and an integrated, multi-sector approach, whereby migration management, transition, recovery, and stabilization complement humanitarian interventions, IOM will continue to champion integrated, multisectoral initiatives that combine humanitarian assistance with development-oriented, conflict-sensitive programming whilst leveraging its multi-sectoral capacity and collaboration with partners.

CAP 2023 highlights IOM’s preparedness actions that includes adopting a risk-informed approach, with a focus on climate resilience and conflict to strengthen communities’ resilience to shocks. IOM’s humanitarian response will be informed by contextual analyses that promote a strong focus on social cohesion for returnees, internally displaced and host communities, thereby contributing to peacebuilding and the linkages between humanitarian and development programmes.

IOM will also continue to provide essential core services such as health, water, sanitation and hygiene response and the provision of mental health and psychosocial support while protection and safeguarding beneficiaries remain the cornerstones of all IOM’s activities. People in South Sudan, the world’s youngest nation, continue to face deteriorating humanitarian conditions worsened by endemic violence, conflict and climatic shocks resulting in extraordinary flooding and drought in some parts of the country. More than 4 million people remain displaced, 2.5 million internally and 2.2 million in neighbouring countries.

In addition to the already dire situation, the outbreak of fighting in Sudan on 15 April 2023 has resulted in an influx of people fleeing the country to neighboring countries including South Sudan. More than 148,000 individuals, 93 per cent of whom are South Sudanese nationals, have arrived in South Sudan as of 30 June 2023.
