Emergency Response Team Multisectoral Assessment Report Northern Bari Payam, Juba County, Central Equatoria State

To assess the status of IDPs and host communities displaced by recent conflict north of Juba town, and advise on the suitability of WASH and/or NFI response. 1. Liaise with RRC, local authorities and community leaders to inform them of Medair’s activities and request cooperation and assistance during the assessment. 2. Monitor security information on ground through communication with local authorities and UNDSS. 3. Monitor further displacement of people in the nearby communities. 4. Establish food and transport arrangements to facilitate Medair’s work. 5. Update Medair WASH and NFI Management on assessment progress. 6. Report on findings within two working days of completion of the assessment.
Key findings: 
1. Food security - The IDPs were consuming leaves as their sustenance. Some are cutting grasses and wood to sell to raise money for food. 2. Health - No emergency health needs were identified. Some people were reported to be injured during the displacement but they are said to be staying in Juba with relatives rather than in Lopope and Kwerijick. 3. Water and Sanitation - Boreholes are available in some areas but need rehabilitation. In Lopope the borehole is saline but there is the possibility to improve on the use of shallow ground water. Poor sanitation was witnessed as there are no public latrines around the market.
