On 20 February 2017, famine was declared in parts of Unity State affecting 100,000 people, with some 5.5 million people expected to be severely food insecure at the height of the lean season (mid 2017). The level of food insecurity is unprecedented since South Sudan’s independence and almost entirely due to the conflict which commenced in 2013.
In 2016 three major shocks occurred to cause this escalated deterioration:
On 20 February, localized famine was declared in Leer and Mayendit counties, and food security experts estimated that some 5.5 million people would be severely food insecure by the height of the lean season in July. Over the course of the month, tens of thousands of people were displaced due to offensives in Upper Nile and Jonglei. In Upper Nile, an estimated 31,500 people were forced to flee continued advances by armed forces on the western bank of the River Nile. About 18,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) reportedly arrived in Kodok and over 13,500 in Aburoc, Fashoda County.
• More than 338,000 people in Leer, Mayendit, Koch and Panyijiar have received humanitarian assistance since localized famine was declared in Leer and Mayendit in South Sudan.
• Cholera cases have been confirmed in Malakal town, bringing the number of counties affected countrywide to 14.
• Heavy clashes between armed groups in Jonglei’s Uror and Nyirol counties forced thousands of civilians to flee.

The Initial assessment in Jikmir was called for by OCHA and the NFI Cluster after various reports about the displacement in Nisir. The IRNA was organised by OCHA at the end of January 2017 with various agencies taking part.
The IDPs moved to Jikmir mainly because of the insecurity In Nasir and therefore they moved to various locations around Jikmir.
The registration and verification was done to the new IDPs after conducting the assessment (IRNA) and therefore no lists were available prior to this.
