Considerable flooding from 5th – 7th June 2019 triggered population movement and displacement in three (3) counties (Nyamlel, Aweil centre town and Gokmachar) of the former Northern Bahr el Gazal State of South Sudan. The raging floods resulted to substantial destruction of houses, road networks and destroyed the livelihoods of 10,892 households This emergency plan of action is based on the assessed current humanitarian situation of the flood affected population and families, the need to meet their immediate needs as well as ensure positive coping mechanisms for the most vulnerable, especially women, girls, children, the elderly and those with disabilities and special needs. The South Sudan Red Cross will continue to monitor the situation given the high predictability of further flooding in the region between July and October, meaning this plan of action would be revised based on the caseloads and changing context. In an event of further displacements, there is the likelihood that this plan will be extended to cover additional period not more three months, until October 2019. SSRC will ensure that all planned actions are aligned with national and state flood response and recovery framework of Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management and coordinated with UN Agencies and other active partners responding to similar events in the region. three (3) counties (Nyamlel, Aweil centre town and Gokmachar) of the former Northern Bahr el Gazal State of South Sudan.
