Introduction

Continued conflict, displacement and environmental shocks negatively impacted access to food and restricted the ability for communities to meet basic needs in Greater Bahr el Ghazal (GBeG) between July and September 2018. Waves of displacement in Western Bahr el Ghazal (WBeG) and flooding in Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG), WBeG and Greater Tonj area1 (GTA) threatened overall food security in the region.

REACH has been assessing hard-to-reach areas in WBeG since April 2017, NBeG since March 2018 and GTA since January 2018.
