South Sudan slideshow: Raising women's awareness to natural resource conservation
JUBA [ACTED News] – There are some 31,000 refugees in Jamam camp, in North-Eastern South Sudan, which counted 37,000 people at its peak since January. The presence of so many refugees has an impact on natural resources because of the great energy needs of the affected populations. Alongside the refugees, ACTED wishes to raise camp dwellers’ awareness to the issue and mitigate the camp’s impact on the environment. The women of Jamam already use energy efficient tools to cook meals.
Take a look at the photo gallery of current practices within the camp. These pictures were taken by our teams when making needs assessments in the camp.
