• In June 2011, FSMS Round Four data collected from all nine states (except Unity) shows that the food security situation has remained relatively unchanged compared to the last round in February, with some interstate variations.

• The effect of North‐South Sudan border closure which resulted in shortage of food and fuel across South Sudan, insecurity and delayed start of season rainfall were the key drivers of food insecurity.

• Although there was increased influx of returnees, massive displacement into NBS, Warrap, Unity and WBS states from Abyei area, the food security remained relatively stable because of emergency humanitarian support from Government and UN and NGO partners. Monitoring will continue as agriculture season progresses and the next Round of FSMS will take place in October 2011.
