5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nicholas Haysom, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS):
“This is not the time to give up on a sense of urgency to implement the peace agreement. Subnational violence-marked by cycles of cattle raiding, abductions, revenge killings-continues to devastate communities and drive humanitarian needs.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Nicholas Haysom, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS):
“Incidents of conflict-related sexual violence are increasing. But it could be effectively addressed if all concerned parties and relevant authorities put a stop to the use of sexual violence as a weapon of choice.”

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Nicholas Haysom, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS):
“Food security continues to deteriorate in South Sudan with an estimated 8.3 million people in need. These trends are being driven by climatic shocks, including floods and droughts, conflicts, the economic downturn, protracted displacement, and disrupted livelihoods. Based on ongoing humanitarian
assessment, flooding and heavy rains have impacted hundreds of thousands of people to date. Access to the people in affected locations remains challenging due to impassable roads, flooded airstrips, and insecurity.”

11. SOUNDBITE (English) Nicholas Haysom, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS):
“We know that if properly developed, livestock, agriculture, and wildlife could become engines of livelihood creation for generations to come. These natural endowments can be a source of conflict or cooperation, and it is always political will that can make a difference.”

13. SOUNDBITE (English) Akuei Bona Malwal, Permanent Representative to the United Nations, South Sudan:
“The roadmap, Mr. President, gives the parties signatory to the peace agreement in South Sudan another chance to seriously in the next two years implement all the provisions and chapters of the agreement.”

STORYLINE
UN Special Representative for South Sudan Nicholas Haysom said, “it is always the political will that can make a difference.”

Briefing the Security Council today (16 Sep), Haysom welcomed the 4 August agreement by the parties to the Revitalized Peace Agreement on a Roadmap, which extends the current transitional period by 24 months.

He also underscored that the Roadmap “is a waypoint, not an endpoint, in South Sudan's journey on the path to democratic transition.”

Also talking at the Security Council, Akuei Bona Malwal, Permanent Representative of South Sudan to the United Nations, said that the roadmap “ gives the parties signatory to the peace agreement in South Sudan another chance to seriously in the next two years implement all the provisions and chapters of the agreement.”

Haysom reiterated, “This is not the time to give up on a sense of urgency to implement the peace agreement. Subnational violence-marked by cycles of cattle raiding, abductions, revenge killings-continues to devastate communities and drive humanitarian needs.”

He noted that incidents of conflict-related sexual violence are increasing, “but it could be effectively addressed if all concerned parties and relevant authorities put a stop to the use of sexual violence as a weapon of choice.”

About the humanitarian situation, he stated that food security continues to deteriorate in the country, with an estimated 8.3 million people in need.

He explained that these trends are driven by climatic shocks, including floods and droughts, conflicts, economic downturns, protracted displacement, and disrupted livelihoods.

According to Haysom, flooding and heavy rains have impacted hundreds of thousands of people. Access to the people in affected locations remains challenging due to impassable roads, flooded airstrips, and insecurity.

He also said that humanitarian needs continue to outstrip available funding and urged donors to fulfill their pledges to the Humanitarian Response Plan, which is only 44.6 percent funded.

Haysom also said, “we know that if properly developed, livestock, agriculture, and wildlife could become engines of livelihood creation for generations to come. These natural endowments can be a source of conflict or cooperation."
