South Sudan: Humanitarian access situation snapshot - January 2017

In January 2017, there was a reduction in the number of humanitarian access incidents reported (64) compared with December 2016 (77). However, the impact on humanitarian operations was substantial, due to relocations of aid workers and suspension of operations in multiple locations. About 53 per cent of incidents reported involved violence against humanitarian personnel or assets. During the month, there were nine incidents involving restrictions of movement within the county, representing a significant increase from December 2016 when there were three cases. The majority of the incidents reported in January occurred in Central Equatoria and Unity, followed by Jonglei and Upper Nile. The number of incidents in Unity continued to rise with 18 reported in January compared to six and 15 incidents in November and December 2016, respectively
