Enhancing peace, safety and security in Maridi, South Sudan

In this brief, we provide a context update about the current situation in Maridi – one of eight counties in Western Equatoria in South Sudan.

We present safety and security challenges identified by communities, authorities and civil society for all levels of government, and national/international organisations to consider.

We also provide recommendations for how best to address the challenges identified such as gender-based violence, tensions caused by cattle migration, conflicts over land, and inadequate responses to security incidents by law enforcement.
