- Famine was declared in two counties (Leer and Mayendit) with a risk of famine in a further two (Koch and Panyijiar). The Government made the declaration on 20 February 2017, based on the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis.
- 4.9 million People are severely food insecure (IPC Phases 3, 4 and 5) between February and April 2017, with this rising to 5.5 million people (almost 50 percent of the population) by the peak of the lean season in July.
- FAO is seeking USD 61 million under the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan for South Sudan. Of this, FAO is urgently seeking USD 33 million by May to ensure timely distribution of the kits.
- Livelihood support is critical for the most vulnerable populations to prevent asset depletion or reduce their adoption of negative coping mechanisms and reduce the number of people relying on food assistance for their survival in 2017.
