World Food Programme Forecasts Early Arrival Lean Season in South Sudan (For the Media)

A recent UN report projects that the lean season will start early this year, and the hunger period will be longer than in previous years. The dry season, which is now beginning, could bring additional hardship to people facing the most severe levels of hunger. UN agencies are calling for a speedy implementation of the peace agreement signed last year, and for unrestricted access to conflict areas to deliver much needed supplies to the most affected areas.
