Key Developments

  • 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.
