UN Gender Analyst Jobs in South Sudan

Since the December 2013 crisis, the Republic of South Sudan continued to face a worsening spiral of humanitarian, development, economic and security crises of unprecedented proportions.


Several drivers of conflict, some new and others heightened by the conflict, have emerged around poorly managed decentralization, corruption, marginalization, ethnic rivalries and exclusionary politics, and unaddressed local grievances that have fed localized militias and insurgencies in the country.

In July 2017, IGAD initiated the process of convening a High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) to put ARCSS on track and reinforce its implementation within firm and credible timeframes.

Subsequent to several inclusive preliminary consultations, the parties to the conflict signed the “Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians, and Humanitarian Access” in Addis Ababa on December 21, 2017.

The third phase of the High-Level Revitalization Forum is ongoing with strong support from faith based and civil society organizations including women led organizations.
