Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

In 2020, the operational environment is expected to remain complex and fluid despite a gradual process of the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict of the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) signed in September 2018 and Government of National Unity expected to be formed by November 2019.

Insecurity and access to people in dire need will remain a challenge in delivering aid, as the operational environment continues to be costly and logistically challenging, with unsafe and impassable roads.
UNHCR, however, remains realistically optimistic that the R-ARCSS will translate into a cessation of hostilities in 2020.

South Sudan is expected to maintain an open-door policy for refugees and asylum-seekers, allowing UNHCR to deliver protection and assistance to those in need.
In 2020, UNHCR plans to assist an estimated 1,526,000 people of concern, refugees, asylum-seekers, spontaneous refugee returnees, IDPs and persons at risk of statelessness (364,000 refugees and asylum-seekers, 500,000 spontaneous refugee returnees, 650,000 IDPs, 12,000 stateless persons).
 

Key priorities

Under the refugee response, UNHCR will:
  • continue to implement core protection and life-saving activities, and support refugee status determination processes to ensure identification and documentation of refugees;
  • Increase investments in livelihoods, child protection, youth programming and education to support protection, self-reliance and pathways to solutions and social cohesion with host communities.
  • Prevent and respond to cases of SGBV, child protection and provide support and core relief items to new arrivals and people with specific needs.
Under the spontaneous refugee returnee response, UNHCR will:
  • Ensure protection of spontaneous refugee returns by strengthening monitoring at 36 major border-crossing points and areas of return, and by exchanging information regularly with neighbouring countries of asylum.
  • Implement community and area-based assistance with targeted support for the extremely vulnerable.
Under the IDP response, UNHCR will:
  • Continue to search for solutions of IDPs in the protection of civilian sites, including further efforts to decongest these sites.
  • Support most vulnerable IDP families and people with specific needs
  • Promote peaceful coexistence with host communities and transparent dialogue on sharing resources and maintaining protection leadership and engagement in coordination.
  • Advocate for durable solutions through the Solutions Working Groups across the country and support the Government to develop and implement a national legislation on IDPs to enhance protection and solutions for IDPs.
To respond to statelessness, UNHCR will:
  • Conduct training for the officials of the Directorate of Nationality, Passport and Immigration to help them properly interpret and apply the Nationality Laws of South Sudan and to understand the possible consequences in terms of risk of statelessness.
  • Advocate for the accession to the 1954 Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.
