Additional EU assistance of €15 million will help scale up the response to surging humanitarian needs in the drought-stricken country.
This brief summarizes FEWS NET’s most forward-looking analysis of projected emergency food assistance needs in FEWS NET coverage countries. The projected size of each country’s acutely food insecure population (IPC Phase 3 and higher) is compared to last year and the recent five-year average and categorized as Higher ( p), Similar ( u), or Lower ( ). Countries where external emergency food assistance needs are anticipated are identified. Projected lean season months highlighted in red indicate either an early start or an extension to the typical lean season.
After nearly four years of civil conflict, South Sudan remains one of the most food-insecure countries in the world. By the end of the lean season in September—the period of the year when food is most scarce—approximately 56 percent of the country’s population was facing life-threatening hunger and in need of humanitarian assistance, making 2017 the most food-insecure year in South Sudan’s history.
East Africa’s economic growth is among the fastest in the world and its countries are becoming increasingly integrated and interdependent. USAID supports regional institutions, including the East African Community (EAC), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), and their member states to address issues that require collaboration between countries.
Juba - UN Women and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) were pleased to host the Japanese Ambassador to South Sudan, Seiji Okada, together with the Deputy Director General of South Sudan’s Directorate of Nationality, Passports and Immigration (DNPI), Major General Charles Boza Eywa, and the Advisor to the President on Gender Affairs, Rachael Nyadak Paul, during a trip to Nimule, Pageri County, on 29 November to visit Government of Japan-funded projects.

As the mandate renewal of the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS) approaches, conflict continues to threaten civilians and drive a protracted humanitarian crisis. More than 2.1 million refugees have fled the country and the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) has increased to over 1.8 million. UNMISS is tasked with the Protection of Civilians (PoC), including 209,000 IDPs at UN PoC sites, and creating conditions that allow over 200 aid organizations to provide for 7.6 million South Sudanese in need of humanitarian assistance.

The Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) monitors trends in staple food prices in countries vulnerable to food insecurity. For each FEWS NET country and region, the Price Bulletin provides a set of charts showing monthly prices in the current marketing year in selected urban centers and allowing users to compare current trends with both five-year average prices, indicative of seasonal trends, and prices in the previous year.
Cholera transmission reported in two counties [Juba and Budi] in the last four weeks [44- 47, 2017] with a total of 21 new cases including one death (Table 1).
There was no new laboratory confirmed case in week 47 (Table 4).
Large-scale Emergencies continue in South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Ethiopia
Conflict and drought are driving very high assistance needs in East Africa and Yemen, with more than 35 million people likely to require humanitarian assistance by May 2018. Sustained, large-scale humanitarian assistance is needed to protect livelihoods and mitigate the potential for loss of life.

The following statement was issued jointly by the Governments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Norway.
The members of the Troika (Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States) recently traveled to Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, South Sudan, and Kenya in support of the efforts of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to urgently convene a High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) for the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan.
Following unprecedented food assistance needs in 2017, little improvement is anticipated during the coming year.
