On 27 August 2018, World Vision re-declared its CAT 3 National Office response to the complex crisis in South Sudan. A CAT 3 Global Response was previously declared on 3 March 2017. 

The goal of the 2017 Response Plan and the 2018 Annual Programme Framework was to “Save lives and avert suffering of the conflict-affected children and their families in South Sudan”. WV South Sudan’s (WVSS) interventions focused on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security and livelihoods, child protection and gender-based violence, education, health and nutrition as well as shelter and non-food items to save lives and alleviate suffering. 

In January 2019 a Real-Time Learning (RTL) process was carried out, focusing on WVSS’s programming. The purpose was to assess the programme against four criteria: programme effectiveness, relevance and responsiveness, coordination and influence, and organisational efficiency. The RTL culminated in a workshop held from 29 to 31 January 2019, where WV staff and partners validated the findings and helped define the conclusions and recommendations.
