FAO: South Sudan people number facing hunger record high

14.06.2019 15:11 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of this week, the number of people facing a critical lack of food within South Sudan has grown to the highest ever, FAO says referring to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) update released today issued by the Government of South Sudan in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP). As to the update, an estimated 6.96 million South Sudanese will face acute levels of food insecurity or worse (IPC Phases 3, 4 and 5) by this year end Jul. An estimated 21,000 people will likely face a catastrophic lack of food access (IPC Phase 5, the highest level in the five-step classification), while about 1.82 million will face Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and another 5.12 million people will face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) levels of food insecurity. In meanwhile, the international organizations are building up their response to the catactrphy. Thus, FAO is providing the country population with new varieties of seeds suited to local conditions and assures the agrarians training to the methods that will reduce losses from drought and flooding. In addition to supporting 800,000 vulnerable farming, fishing and agro-pastoral households with vegetable and crop seeds, agricultural tools and fishing equipment, FAO is carrying out animal vaccinations and other veterinary services in support of livestock keepers to protect their livelihoods. Besides, on its part, WFP will provide up to 5.1 million people with a variety of support including life-saving food and cash distributions in areas with working markets, food in return for work on the construction and rehabilitation of community assets, food for school meals, and special products for the prevention and treatment of malnutrition among children, and pregnant or nursing women. It is to be admitted, WFP has already prepositioned 173,000 metric tons of food within over 60 areas before the onset of the rainy season (66,000 metric tons up against 2018 similar). Pre-positioning not only helps to save lives but reduces delivery cost.
