    About 9.3 million people in the Sudan were already in need of humanitarian assistance prior to COVID-19. Since the economic shock of South Sudan’s secession in 2011, the Sudanese economy has been in a downward spiral that the country has since struggled to stabilize. Political instability; conflict in the states of Blue Nile, Darfur and Southern Kordofan; poor basic infrastructure; and the reliance of much of the population on subsistence agriculture, has kept close to half of the population at or below the poverty line. The COVID-19 pandemic has further aggravated and compounded the already fragile situation, which is exacerbated by climate-induced disasters such as floods and droughts and food chain crises (desert locust and other plant and animal pests and diseases), with the annual inflation rate in the Sudan climbing to its highest level in almost 25 years since its emergence. 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.

    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.

    The ongoing conflict in the Sudan, which erupted on 15 April, has worsened an already fragile food security situation. Prior to the crisis, one in four people faced acute food insecurity due partly to instability, economic decline and high food prices. An estimated 2.1 million people have since been displaced leaving their homes in search of safety, including 467 000 people who have fled to neighbouring countries for refuge. As the lean season approaches and challenges arise in transporting humanitarian goods across borders, it is crucial to urgently provide agricultural humanitarian assistance to mitigate the impact of displacement, trade disruptions and surges in food and fuel prices on vulnerable populations. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) seeks to work with local actors and partners to save lives, ensure access to food and improve livelihoods in the Sudan. This document provides an overview of FAO's component of the 2023 Revised Humanitarian Response Plan for the Sudan. FAO requires USD 95.4 million to assist 15 million people.
