Security: Security level orange. Juba remains volatile. Although the possibilities of a crisis cannot be completely ruled out but indicators of continuing ceasefire are visible. The situation remains tense and unpredictable; concerns include high criminality rate, presence of armed troops, and looting. There is active conflict in many parts of the country and a possibility for further expansion of the conflict and violence into other areas and other states. Due to the deteriorating economic situation in South Sudan (i.e. devaluation of SSP, shortage of fuel, shortage of USD, increasing prices of food and basic necessities) the local community has developed growing animosity towards the expatriate community in the country.
Living Conditions The position is based in Juba. Lodging is in a studio (private bedroom with bathroom and kitchenette) in a shared IRC guest house - with electricity, internet and cable TV. Food is the individual's responsibility. Field offices housing is more basic, i.e. in traditional huts or tents with separate shared latrines and showers. Movements are restricted and a curfew is in place.
