South Sudan - LRA Affected IDP Assessment: Western Equatoria State, May 2011

The main objective of the inter‐agency assessment for the LRA IDPs in six Counties of Western Equatoria State (WES) was to assess their food security status and possible needs which can be used to formulate an exit strategy for IDPs who have continuously been assisted for even up to 3 years. The interagency assessment was conducted from 19‐31 May 2011 by a team led by WFP. Other partners were UNOCHA, RSCO, IOM, UNICEF, UNHCR, FAO, CAFOD, WVI, INTERSOS and SSRRC. At least 300 IDPs were interviewed through focus group interviews in Tambura, Ezo, Nzara, Maridi, Yambio, and Ibba Counties.
