More than 4.4 million people face acute food insecurity through at least September
The USAID-funded Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) projects that more than 4.4 million people in Sudan will face acute food insecurity through the end of the June-to-September lean season. However, the acutely food-insecure population is expected to decline significantly between October 2016 and January 2017 due to projected average harvests, reduced staple food prices, and increased income from labor and livestock sales.
From January to June, nearly 83,400 people fled from South Sudan to Sudan, primarily to Darfur Region, due to conflict, deteriorating economic conditions, and food insecurity.
Since late May, USAID has provided more than $79 million in additional humanitarian assistance—comprising approximately $55 million from USAID/FFP and $24 million from USAID/OFDA—for the Sudan response, bringing total U.S. Government (USG) FY 2016 humanitarian assistance for Sudan to more than $231 million.
