    Food Insecurity Extreme Levels in South Sudan

    Food insecurity in South Sudan has reached the most extreme levels since independence in 2011. Famine has eased after a significant scale up in the humanitarian response. However, the situation remains dire across the country and the approaching lean season threatens the food security of 7 million people. As seasonal hunger peaks, WFP needs US$300 million to feed people and make sure that no child goes to sleep hungry.

    Nearly Two-Thirds of the Population in South Sudan at Risk of Rising Hunger (For the Media)

    More than 7 million people in South Sudan – almost two-thirds of the population – could become severely food insecure in the coming months without sustained humanitarian assistance and access, three United Nations agencies warned today. Last year, FAO, WFP, UNICEF and their partners rolled out their largest ever aid campaign, saving lives and containing famine. In 2017, agency partners conducted more than 135 rapid humanitarian missions to the most hard-to-reach areas, providing life-saving assistance to over 1.8 million people.
