    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.

    Despite our best efforts at curbing world hunger – conflict is still raising the number of food insecure people in the world. Of the 815 million hungry people on the planet, 489 million live in conflict zones. The problem is getting worse – with the number of conflicts around the world at an all-time high. #ZeroHunger
