FAO provides crucial food security information, analysis and coordination in South Sudan

Sep 2014

Humanitarian assistance is having a measurable and significant impact in South Sudan. The combined efforts of the Food Security and Livelihood Cluster (co-led by FAO, WFP and Mercy Corps) and Nutrition Cluster have helped to pull 2 million people back from the brink of famine and severe food insecurity. Despite current short-term improvements, 1.5 million people are projected to remain severely food insecure until the end of 2014. This figure is set to increase as the dry season intensifies in early next year.
