(2) Rural areas with very badly shaped roads, few infrastructure and NGO leaving in compounds. The different sites of intervention are accessible by plane through MAF and WFP-run services. The security conditions are instable with a level 3 and areas under massive conflict. (3) The rainy season in South Sudan goes from May/June to September/October. During this period, movements are mostly limited since the roads are impracticable. (4) A special system of R&R is in place with time for rest out of the country every ten weeks around.
