The United Nations and South Sudan government have warned that extreme weather conditions, increased armed violence, and the number of internally displaced people have led to increased food insecurity, which had worsened since last year.

According to a joint UN and government report., Populations suffering most from the food shortages are located in the Unity, Jonglei, Upper Nile, Warrap, and Eastern Equatorial states,

World Food Programme acting country director in South Sudan, Adeyinka Badejo, said until conflict is addressed, the numbers would continue since people do not have safe access to their lands to cultivate.

He appealed to the leaders of the country to continue towards the path of peace.
