Highlights of the Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin:

  • Water supply improvements were reported in camps hosting 110,000 Sudanese refugees in Upper Nile State.
  • Aid organizations gained initial access to conflict-affected communities in Jonglei State, with about 10,000 people displaced by recent violence.
  • Flooding reduced as the end of the rainy season neared. 270,000 people have been effected since the rains began in June.

Situation overview

The humanitarian response continued to more than 175,000 refugees in Unity and
Upper Nile, from Sudan’s South Kordofan and Blue Nile states. Improvements in access to water in Upper Nile led to increases in water supply levels in all four refugee sites, hosting over 110,000 people. In Jonglei State, aid organizations registered close to 10,000 people displaced by recent fighting between the South Sudan army and non-state armed groups in Pibor County. The humanitarian response to fl ood-affected communities across the country continued as the rains receeded.

The governments of South Sudan and Sudan participated in a high-level security meeting in Juba from 6-7 November, chaired by both states’ Ministers of Defense. However, the meeting failed to reach agreement on steps to implement security arrangements for the demilitarized border zone between the two countries, according to the African Union.
