June rainfall was 10 to 25 percent below average in the extreme west and across the sorghum belt in central and eastern Sudan.
Staple food prices remained stable in May reflecting adequate supplies from above-average 2014/15 production. On average, sorghum and millet price levels are 20 percent lower than last year, but remain 50 percent above the five-year average.
Nearly 30,000 South Sudanese refugees arrived in White Nile and West Kordofan states since late May due to intensified conflict in the Greater Upper Nile region of South Sudan, according to the UNCHR. The South Sudanese refugee population reached 180,500 in June.
