The effects of the prolonged conflict in South Sudan stretch beyond the national borders, also affecting the neighbouring countries such as Uganda. In fact, the presence of refugees in Uganda places pressure on resources, both for the hosting country which is in economic downturn, and for the humanitarian agencies which are stretching to respond to numerous emergencies in the region. According to the Office of Prime Minister (OPM) in Kryandongo refugee settlement, the emergency aid delivered by humanitarian organisations is not sufficient to face the enormous need of refugees and asylum seekers.
In order to identify the needs of the South Sudanese population (including IDPs and affected population in South Sudan, and refugees in Uganda) LCED periodically takes part to inter-agency assessments, as well as conducting its own assessments. LCED is also very active in working towards partnership and collaborations with other CSOs/CBOs/NGOs, with which report findings and other information are normally shared.
