According to the December 2011 IPC Acute Food Insecuirty Analysis, South Sudan is classified in IPC Phase 2 (Stressed), with 24.5% of the population whose food security is under pressure.

Half of the population (50.7%) is currently in IPC Phase 1 (Minimal), 24.6% of the population remains in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and only 0.04% is in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency), especially in the areas along the border with Sudan and some parts of Jonglei State. 

The projected trend of the food insecurity situation in South Sudan is expected to deteriorate in almost half of the country with the states bordering Sudan and some counties in Upper Nile and Jonglei slipping to IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) with 14% of the population in dire need of food assistance. 

The Western flood plains, Nile Sobat corridor, parts of the iron stone plateau and the pastoral livelihoods zone are expected to be in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) with 14% of the population struggling to cope.
