Solidarites International Country Director Jobs in South Sudan


The civil armed conflict that broke out in South Sudan in mid‐December 2013 has burdened the country with a multi‐layered array of challenges. According to OCHA and UNHCR, in December 2018, over 4 million people were still forced to flee their homes due to insecurity, including 1.87 million IDPs and 2.27 million refugees still hosted in neighboring countries.

The protracted nature of the conflict has considerably destroyed key basic infrastructures, and weakened livelihood opportunities, while eroding the coping capacities of the local communities. The most vulnerable are also facing the impact of climate change, with alteration of usual rainfall patterns, leading to seasonal droughts and flooding, causing further displacements and contributing to resource‐based conflicts.
