“The Revitalized Peace Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan signed on 12th September, 2018 between the Government and the opposition groups ended the internal conflict in South Sudan. The parties are committed to the implementation of the Peace Agreement, which has improved the security in South Sudan. Owing to relative peace, the internally displaced and the refugees have been voluntarily returning home, although more formal reintegration remains a challenge due to limited resources. However, the government is doing whatever is possible to resettle the internally displaced persons and the refugees.”
