South Sudan endorses the action plan for internally Displaced Persons.
South Sudan has welcomed the United Nations’ Action Agenda for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), characterizing it as a foundation for coordinating collaborative efforts to address challenges related to the displaced.
“Although we have seen it in the media, we have not yet gotten an official briefing from the involved United Nations organizations; yet, we have appreciated this information as we await an official briefing.”
We hope this would serve as a foundation for coordinating our efforts, said Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management’s Mayen Majongdit on Thursday.
He said that the fledgling country was prepared and will continue to collaborate with humanitarian groups and institutions to advance humanity, peace, and prosperity.
South Sudan is one of the nations in the globe where a large number of people have been compelled to flee their native homes and communities in search of safety and security or a new location.
On June 24, António Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, unveiled an Action Agenda on Internal Displacement.
The statement indicated that more than 59 million people are presently internally displaced around the globe, which is the greatest figure ever recorded and necessitates increased global efforts to solve this global issue.
“As the heads of five UN agencies and entities, we are gathered here today to declare our commitment to advancing this Action Agenda.
We recognize that only through strong cooperation, a shared purpose, and concerted efforts will we be able to assist internally displaced persons (IDPs) in ending their displacement, prevent future displacement crises, and ensure that those currently facing displacement receive effective protection and assistance, according to a UN statement.
It said, “We realize that although humanitarian action continues to serve an important function, achieving significant change on internal displacement will need stronger cooperation and participation from actors throughout the UN system and beyond, including development, peace, and climate specialists.”
The present problem of internal displacement will not be handled sustainably by humanitarian aid alone, but rather by working with national and local authorities to provide the circumstances for safe, long-term solutions.
Guterres appointed five groups to participate as a Steering Group on Solutions to Internal Displacement in order to prepare the action plan.
The Steering Group has been meeting frequently since the beginning of 2022 and looks forward to having Robert Piper as the newly designated Special Adviser on Solutions to Internal Displacement.
