Emergency Response By UN-FAO implemented by HAGI

The current floods in South Sudan has led to widespread displacement, with thousands of people fleeing their homes and seeking refuge in Yirol East and West counties. These internally displaced persons (IDPs) are often in dire need of basic necessities, including food, shelter, and water. In addition, the flood has disrupted livelihoods and food production, further exacerbating the food security situation in the areas of Jonglei state.

Providing IDPs and host communities with seeds for planting staple crops like sorghum, maize, and groundnuts is essential for ensuring food security.

This will help them to become self-sufficient and reduce their reliance on food aid.

Many communities in Yirol East and West rely on fishing for their food and income.

Providing fishing tools, such as nets, hooks, and lines, will help them to maintain their livelihoods and access essential protein sources.

Encouraging the cultivation of vegetables will improve the nutritional intake of IDPs and host communities.

This will provide them with essential vitamins and minerals that are often lacking in their diets.
