Southern Sudan 2010: Mitigating a Humanitarian Disaster

NRC|Published 15. Mar 2010
In this report, the Norwegian Refugee Council outlines three priority areas where international and domestic partners need to concentrate their activities to address the expected humanitarian challenges in South Sudan in 2010-2011.

This thematic report seeks to acknowledge the negative impact a failed Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) process would have on the humanitarian situation in South Sudan, as failing to address intra-South causes of conflict would render a successful CPA process largely meaningless. While a smooth and legitimate CPA process would reduce the risks of renewed fighting between the North and South, it would not address the root causes of most intra-South conflicts.
