to assist

6 million people

FAO requires

USD 90 million


January–December 2021


















A combination of severe flooding, dry spells, insecurity, disease and pests, the economic crisis, the effects of COVID-19, limited access to basic services and the cumulative effects of prolonged asset depletion and loss of livelihoods continues to drive food insecurity across South Sudan. Without immediate and unrestricted humanitarian assistance to curb the severity and spread of the food crisis, over 7 million people – more than half of South Sudan’s population – are likely to slip into crisis or worse levels of acute food insecurity at the height of the lean season, from April to July 2021.
