    The conflict and resulting insecurity negatively impacted programme implementation in 2015. The continued fighting and insecurity in some parts of the country that inhibited access, and the delayed formation of a transitional government are some of the factors that hindered effective programme delivery and resulted in non-achievement of some planned outcomes. Notwithstanding, UNDP's support to the National Platform for Peace and Reconciliation (NPPR) reinforced an indigenous mechanism which supported the implementation of the peace agenda.

    The violent conflict that started in December 2013 reversed significant gains in peace and security made since independence. The conflict quickly changed the development context and made immediate humanitarian response the priority. UNDP along with other development organizations were forced to halt or realign programming to the new context.

  • Fast Facts: Crisis in South Sudan
    Mar 18, 2014

    In South Sudan, the world’s youngest nation, violence, which began in mid-December 2013, continues to cause chaos. People in South Sudan face urgent humanitarian and development needs. It is estimated that more than 800,000 people had been displaced from their homes by late February 2014. Thousands have been killed or wounded in the fighting. Hundreds of thousands have lost livelihoods and access to basic services. Around 3.7 million South Sudanese are facing acute food insecurity and this number is likely to increase if the crisis continues and farm outputs remain affected. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in South Sudan has continued to operate in spite of the current crisis, supporting national, state and local governments to deliver development services, as well as community security and stabilization for at-risk communities.
