Achievements and Impact
La prise en compte des besoins des personnes handicapées devrait devenir obligatoire
Pays nécessitant une aide alimentaire extérieure
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.
This is my first briefing to the Security Council on South Sudan and I would like to focus on four issues: the humanitarian outlook for the coming months, humanitarian access constraints, current aid delivery, and the help we seek from the Council to guarantee free and consistent access to all those who need humanitarian assistance and protection. I agree with - and will try not to repeat - what was said by Jean-Pierre.
Strong cereal harvests are keeping global food supplies buoyant, but localised drought, flooding and protracted conflicts have intensified and perpetuated food insecurity, according to the new edition of FAO's Crop Prospects and Food Situation report. Some 37 countries, 29 of which are in Africa, require external assistance for food, according to the report.
Despite the August 2015 peace agreement, ongoing armed conflict in South Sudan poses an imminent risk to populations who may be targeted on the basis of ethnicity and presumed political loyalties.
