South Sudan: Japan extends $25 million assistance for South Sudan’s Peace and Development

Source: Government of Japan
Country: South Sudan

Juba – Japan decided to provide a new assistance package of 25 million USD for
South Sudan through partnership with international organizations.
The signing of the Revitalized Agreement for Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan
(R-ARCSS) on 12th September is a milestone to achieve peace and stability in South
Sudan and move towards the development of the country. After the signing, the
ceasefire continues to hold in most parts of the country and the economic situations
are improving. The successful implementation of the R-ARCSS is now critically
important for the sustainable peace and stability in South Sudan.

However, it is estimated that more than 4 million South Sudanese, approximately
one-third of its total population, are displaced and remains at dire humanitarian
conditions. Almost 50% of populations are under food insecurity, while Humanitarian
Response Plan 2019 estimated approximately 7 million people will need humanitarian
assistance. There is also need for capacity building and development assistance in
order to increase resilience of South Sudanese people. Therefore, Japan will continue
to support, in partnership with the international community, the efforts towards peace
and stability in South Sudan.
