Understanding Women’s Challenges in South Sudan

In October 2011, six women Members of the South Sudan National Legislative Assembly (NLA) travelled to the rural areas of Mundri East County and Western Equatoria State to meet with local women organisations. During the visit, the MPs and local women discussed the challenges they face due to the lack of infrastructure in South Sudan. Through these consultations, the MPs developed a more clear understanding of the needs of the rural populations, which included hospitals, transport and roads, schools, seeds for agriculture, clean water, and power, among others. The women also discussed the prevalence of youth pregnancy, and the spread of diseases such as Malaria, Typhus and Nodding. Watch video

During a two-day workshop organised by the National Assembly, in cooperation with the Association of European Parliamentarians with Africa (AWEPA), over fourty Members of Parliaments (MPs), representatives of the government and local NGOs exchanged ideas on how best to undertake and coordinate action towards the abandonment of the practice. The workshop resulted in the adoption of proposed “Key Parliamentary Actions” for MPs to undertake in order to favour the abandonment of FGM/C in Burkina Faso. Watch video
