Tackling the food deficit in the world's newest country

A year after South Sudan became the world's newest nation, half of its 9.7 million citizens are struggling to meet their basic food needs. Internal conflict, clashes with Sudan, poor harvests, and complex population movement have all contributed to the current crisis.

This brief looks at the reasons for the current food crisis in South Sudan and draws attention to its impact on the population. It calls on the government of the Republic of South Sudan and international actors to urgently address the food insecurity crisis, ensure that resources reach the most vulnerable, and work for peace and development for the citizens of the world‘s newest country.
