IRNA Joint Flood Assessment Report - Aweil West

IRNA Joint Flood Assessment Report - Aweil West

Subject/Objective: 
To assess flood affected people in Aweil West County, Northern Bahr-el-Ghazal, South Sudan.
Methodology: 
The methodology used during the assessment includes, key informant interviews (KII) with local authorities and community leaders, interviews with members of the affected population and interviews with vulnerable groups such as women, elderly, children and the people living with disabilities. Additionally, observation was used to gauge and understand the humanitarian situation in the affected areas.
Key findings: 
Displacement from the village was noted in over half of the villages surveyed, while one third of the villages were hosting people from other areas. All the villages had residents with children under the age of 18 and people over the age of 60. Based on KII interviews with community leaders and affected people, it is estimated that 2,422 households have been impacted by the flooding in Aweil West county. Most of the villages sampled indicated that their food stock; especially Cereals, Pulses and Legumes would only last for a duration of 1-2 weeks. There are some noted exceptions where they state that there are supplies for less than one week. There seems to be significant outbreaks of malaria with all but two villages noting instances of it. Seven villages noted more than 40 cases in the last seven days. NFIs, particularly blankets, plastic sheeting and mats are required since many households were displaced by the flooding. All except three villages had mosquito nets, although quality and quantity per household is unclear. To provide humanitarian assistance, there is needs for independent registration to verify the exact number of affected populations. The security situation was calm at the time of assessment
