Overview :

The violence in South Sudan has had a profound impact on individuals and communities as it has further weakened and destabilized coping mechanisms, Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention and response systems, and peace building initiatives. The violence has also negatively impacted institutional capacity for provision of basic social services and for justice and reconciliation; reinforced deep-seated grievances that underpin many inter-communal conflicts, perpetuating revenge killings and violence, including GBV. As much destruction goes on at community level through intercommunal conflict during cattle raid, fighting over land and water resources, accompanying abductions, forced marriage and gender-based violence. In displacement settings, threats and risks of GBV against women and girls persist particularly sexual violence, intimate partner violence increases (IPV) as do sexual exploitation, harassment and child, and forced marriage.The violence in South Sudan has had a profound impact on individuals and communities as it has further weakened and destabilized coping mechanisms, Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention and response systems, and peace building initiatives.
