In Juba, the situation in the PoCs continue to be volatile, as intertribal clashes within communities continue, as well as hostility towards humanitarian actors. IDPs are also becoming increasingly hostile towards the security staff in the camps in Juba. The arrival of the dry season has resulted in increased violence, as expected and the new fighting is magnifying the already serious humanitarian crisis.In general, securing space for women’s activities remains a considerable challenge. Many of the tents allocated for women and girls in the PoCs are currently occupied by IDPs in need of shelter. Camp management is slow to take action regarding the relocation of IDPs so that the spaces can be used for their intended purpose.
