Annual Needs Assessment Report from FEAU in South Sudan

Major Findings

Nutritional crises continue to threaten large numbers of the population

These crises are worst in the largely agricultural areas of Aweil West and Ruweng counties; the floodplains and swamps of Leech State; and the semi-arid rangelands of Kapoeta County

Despite marked short-term improvements in Aweil East and Gogrial counties, emergency food aid is still needed for a majority of the population

The Lakes region is generally food secure but food aid is still needed, especially to support the resettlement process for thousands of previously displaced persons from the border areas and to help improve the infrastructure needed to make lasting differences

The dividends of locally-brokered peace agreements are very apparent in the improved opportunities for food security in all places were they have taken place

The generally positive trends in Phou, Bieh and Latjor states over the last five years are now being threatened by the potential resumption of civilian-targeted conflict and recent changes in political alliances and allegiances

Significant surpluses of grains and groundnuts are available for purchase throughout Western Equatoria
