IOM in South Sudan has a broad range of programming centred around three broad areas: humanitarian coordination and support, humanitarian response and resilience, and peacebuilding, transition, and development. Humanitarian coordination and support include leading/co-leading the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) and Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFI) Clusters, Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), and management of WASH and Shelter and NFI core-pipelines, humanitarian hubs and standard transport services. Humanitarian response and resilience include CCCM, WASH, Shelter & NFI, Health, Protection, Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) and the management of a Rapid Response Fund. Under peacebuilding, transition and development, IOM South Sudan implements programming on housing, land and property issues, transition and recovery, transhumance conflict prevention, community-based violence reduction, community development and migration management.

The recently revitalized peace process offers new opportunities for South Sudan to realise transformational change and move beyond the cycles of conflict and violence that have propagated widespread aid dependency. The South Sudan Reconciliation, Stabilization, and Resilience Trust Fund (South Sudan RSRTF) has been established to provide immediate and flexible financing to support integrated programs that reduce conflict drivers and promote self-reliant communities. The Fund adopts an innovative whole-of-system, area-based programming approach to overcome fragility, political instability, and societal disintegration. It is governed by a Steering Committee and is anchored in the United Nations Cooperation Framework (UNCF) to support the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS). The Fund’s Secretariat, embedded within the Office of the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General/Resident Coordinator/Humanitarian Coordinator (DSRSG/RC/HC) at United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), provides administrative and programmatic support.
