Republic of South Sudan: Current (April 2015) and Projected (May-July 2015) and (Aug-Sept 2015) Acute Food Insecurity Situation

30/04/2015 - 30/09/2015
South Sudan
Further deterioration of the food insecurity situation - from 2.5 million to 4.6 million people classified severely food insecure

The recent IPC analysis, conducted at the end of April 2015 in Nimule, indicates a further deterioration in the number of people facing severe food insecurity from 2.5 million people in January - March 2015 to around 4.6 million people during the lean period of May - July 2015.


Compared to May in most previous years, the lean season started two months earlier due to diminished household food stocks, high food prices and long-term effects of the conflict. 

This analysis does not capture the on-going insecurity developments in Unity and Upper Nile. The IPC Technical Working Group (TWG) will update the analysis in early July, or sooner if the situation allows, to incorporate the impacts of the recent conflict on food security of the communities, depending on information availability.
