In the current period - the harvest period - from October to December 2018, 5.67 million people are estimated to be in Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phases 3 and 4), representing 12.8% of the analysed population. Almost 1 million people (986,174, representing 2.2% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and more than 4.5 million people (4,688,042, representing 10.6% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis). 

In the projected period, corresponding to the post-harvest season, from January to March 2019, 5.76 million people are estimated to be in Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phases 3 and 4), representing 13% of the analyzed population. More than 1 million people (1,083,613, representing 2.4% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and more than 4.67 million people (4,675,812, representing 10.5% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis).

171 localities were classified in all states in Sudan. 33 localities are estimated to be in IPC phase 3 (Crisis) in Blue Nile, White Nile, Southern Kordofan, Kassala, Gedaref, Red Sea and Darfur states. Darfur accounts for about 45% of the population in IPC Phase 3 and 4, however, there has been no area classified in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency). The highest prevalence of population in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) are in the States of Khartoum and South Darfur.

The effects of the economic crisis, which led to the devaluation of the Sudanese pound, led to high inflation rates, increasing food and non-food commodities prices. In certain locations, the influx of refugees from neighbouring countries has also impacted food security.
