Sudan
It is the dry season in southern Sudan. Although light rains have been reported along the Ethiopian border and in Bahr el Ghazal and Lakes Provinces, crop cultivation at present is limited to riparian areas with access to irrigation. Generally, both farmers and pastoralists have shifted to dry-season patterns, relying more on grain stores, livestock, fish, wild foods, and, in some locations, food aid. As pasture conditions have deteriorated, following the usual seasonal pattern, the best grazing is in swampy areas along the Nile and other major rivers.
