  • HSS: Annual Summary Report Eastern Lakes 2018

    August 22, 2019

    • Security perceptions have generally improved across Eastern Lakes in 2018 compared to 2017. The current local peace process between Greater Yirol, Amongpiny and Payinjiar plays an important part in this and is generally supported by the communities.
    • However, Pakam communities that have migrated into the Yirol East-Payinjiar border area still pose a major challenge to the peace process, with incidents of armed violence and cattle raiding still occurring. These developments risk affecting the peace process’ peace dividend.
    • According to survey respondents, both the causes of conflict and the solutions for peace relate to socio-economic and political aspects: the lack/need of comprehensive economic development, implementation of the national peace agreement (R-ARCISS), improved governance at local and national levels.
