HSS Expert Panel Monitor: Q3-Q4 update from Greater Yirol, Lakes State, South Sudan
In January 2023, a PAX interviewer conducted 12 interviews with local security experts in Lakes State. The group of experts included local government officials, police chiefs, court officials, communal chiefs, religious leaders, and women leaders. This report summarizes the security dynamics observed by the consulted experts during Q3 and Q4 of 2022.
- All consulted local security experts unanimously claimed that the local security situation in Greater Yirol had further improved during the second half of 2022. Cases of intercommunal cattle raiding and road ambushes are reported to have decreased.
- Floods have not only affected neighboring areas in Jonglei and Unity, but also Yirol East (Pagarau, Malek) and Awerial counties.
- Authorities call for more peace activities and meetings to strengthen and retain peaceful coexistence across Greater Yirol and with the immediate neighbors (especially between Awerial County and neighboring Terekeka — in Central Equatoria).
