Years of conflict and significant economic deterioration have left South Sudan in the grip of serious food insecurity, with women and children the most vulnerable. Sustained, large-scale assistance to protect livelihoods and increase resilience to further shocks will be crucial to save lives, boost food production capacities and build self-sufficiency.
FAO is working with partners in the Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster to:
• Enhance food availability for severely food-insecure households through food-based nutrition support.
• Strengthen the collection, analysis and coordination of food security, agriculture and livestock information.
