Key Messages
  • Harvests are underway country-wide improving household access to food. However, in the conflict-affected states of Jonglei, Upper Nile, and Unity, production deficits of 30 to 50 percent have limited recovery from prolonged food deficits earlier this year, especially among poor and displaced households who rely on sharing through kinship to access food.

  • Nearly 1 million people will remain in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) in the Greater Upper Nile region during the harvest period from October to December.

  • Escalation of conflict in early 2015 is expected to cause new, large-scale displacement, prevent market recovery, and limit access to food and income sources. An early onset of the lean season, and significant reductions in food and income sources will result in growing food gaps from January to July. Very poor households will likely deplete assets in order to offset food gaps.

  • A rapid deterioration in food security outcomes is expected starting in early 2015 and will worsen from April to July when an estimated 40 percent of the population in Greater Upper Nile will face significant food consumption deficits. During this period, acute food insecurity will intensify and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) is expected in much of Unity, central Jonglei, and southern Upper Nile.
