In Focus: Conflicts in South Sudan and Sudan
By Angelia Sanders
9 February 2012
Australia is responding quickly to prevent a deepening food shortage in the Sahel region in Africa and address urgent humanitarian needs in Sudan and South Sudan.
Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd said that millions of people in the Sahel are in need of food following drought, reduced crop harvests and people movements from other parts of Africa affected by conflict, such as Libya and Cote d'Ivoire.
- Agricultural areas of the Sudanian zone
and Gulf of Guinea are still generally food secure thanks to good 2009
harvests, particularly for the first and main growing seasons.
- In general, the Sahelian population is moderately foodinsecure. Pastoralists and agropastoralists in the eastern Sahel, where agropastoral production is especially poor and livestock-to cereal terms of trade are deteriorating, are specifically classified as highly food?insecure.
The European Commission has adopted a €160 million food aid decision targeting an estimated 18.7 million people living in regions such as sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, the Caucasus, the Middle East and North Africa. This funding decision, the largest ever launched by the Commission's Humanitarian Aid department, aims to meet the needs of the most vulnerable people facing food shortages due to natural catastrophes, economic and political crises, and armed conflicts. It is the first food aid decision for 2008.
