Mine Action and Cluster Munitions Project Summary
South Sudan’s dark legacy of conflict has lasting impact today. During the lengthy fight for independence, it was common to drop explosives from the sky and bury them underground, limiting the movement of South Sudanese people. Today, many unexploded remnants of war, including cluster munitions and mines continue to put civilians at risk. Small arms and light weapons were used throughout the different conflicts in 2013 and 2016 and remain a problem up, until today.
