    South Sudan: Humanitarian Needs and Response Plan 2024 2024
    Also available in:

    Humanitarian needs in South Sudan are expected to reach a record high this year. Amid a complex emergency that has displaced millions and destroyed livelihoods, more than half the population will be acutely food insecure during the lean season from April to June. Almost 80 000 people are likely to face catastrophic levels of food insecurity, meaning that food is almost completely inaccessible and they cannot meet basic needs. In a country where 9 in 10 people depend on agriculture, supporting livelihoods is vital and cost-effective. For example, with a USD 55 crop production kit, a family can grow and harvest a nutritious variety of food to last them over five months. This document provides an overview of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations' (FAO) component of the 2024 Humanitarian Needs and Response Plan for South Sudan. FAO requires USD 60 million to assist 3.9 million people.

    South Sudan | 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan 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.

    Despite a period of relative stability since the signing of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) in September 2018, more than 6.5 million people are experiencing acute food insecurity at crisis or worse levels across the country (Integrated Food Security Phase Classification [IPC], January 2020). This is due to the cumulative effects of years of conflict and asset depletion, low crop production, climatic and economic shocks, limited access to basic services and the resultant increase in vulnerability and reduction in resilience. Almost 4 million people remain displaced, both internally and as refugees in neighbouring countries. This situation is exacerbated by COVID-19, which has indirectly disrupted food availability and increased food prices, as well as the surging and re-surging desert locust outbreak in the Horn of Africa, all of which are threatening the already fragile food security and nutrition situation in South Sudan. In the framework of FAO’s Corporate COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme and the United Nations Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.
