South Sudan observed independence in 2011 but the country continues to experience instability and is still a fragile state. The humanitarian crisis in Upper Nile occurred as a result of fighting and violence in Juba in December 2013 and later spread to other parts of the country including Upper Nile. The situation in Upper Nile further worsened following May 2015 violence due to defection of Agulic/Shilluk forces from the government. As a result, access constraints due to mainly to conflict restricted aid agencies from reaching vulnerable people with vital assistance.
