South Sudan declared most violent for aid workers for third straight year

    South Sudan again topped the list of most violent countries in the world in which to deliver aid in 2017, in a report launched by Humanitarian Outcomes today.

    “It’s the third consecutive year that South Sudan tops the global list, underscoring the complexities in delivering aid in this war, and the impunity with which armed actors operate when attacking aid workers,” said Jan Egeland, Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

    Almost one in three of the 158 major violent incidents against aid operations that took place last year occurred in the world’s newest nation. Syria, Afghanistan and the Central African Republic were listed the next most dangerous, followed by Nigeria and Somalia.

    Record numbers of humanitarians were killed by gunfire in South Sudan last year, with 24 dying of gunshot wounds. 2017 also witnessed an increase in detention of aid workers by parties to the conflict. Other violent attacks included physical assaults and armed robberies.

    “Aid workers are protected by international law and must not be used as pawns in South Sudan’s conflict. Violence against aid workers paralyses our lifesaving work,” said Egeland.

    One hundred aid workers have lost their lives since the conflict broke out in December 2013, with South Sudanese staff at the highest risk. They often work in the hardest-to-reach locations, which can also be the most dangerous.

    Conflict has meant that, on occasion, relief organisations have been forced to temporarily pull out of areas until the security situation improves, often resulting in the suspension of critical aid delivery, like food and medicine.

    Food distributions are a lifeline for tens of thousands of people, and helped to reverse famine in 2017. However, food experts have pointed to the possibility of famine again this year, if access to communities on the brink of starvation is not improved.

    “We are cautiously optimistic about last week’s peace deal signing. We need to see positive action now for it to materialise. The peace deal must result in improved access for humanitarians to communities caught in conflict areas,” said Egeland. “Furthermore, it must see perpetrators being held to account for attacks against aid workers.
