South Sudan: Humanitarian Snapshot (October 2012)
South Sudan continues to face considerable humanitarian challenges, with persistent high levels of food insecurity and malnutrition caused by continued border closure between South Sudan and Sudan, high food and fuel prices, and disrupted agricultural production due to conflict and displacement. Seasonal flooding, though severe, is abating as the dry season nears. About 176,000 refugees from Sudan’s Blue Nile and South Kordofan states have sought refuge in Unity and Upper Nile states with new arrivals expected in the near future.
