Famine hits parts of South Sudan

Feb 2017

Famine has officially been declared by the South Sudanese government for some parts of the country. The UN is warning that areas hardest hit by war and a collapsing economy have left about 100,000 people facing starvation and a further 1 million people classified as being on the brink of famine. To elaborate more on the situation is Luca Russo, a senior strategic advisor on resilience with the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome.
