UN agencies says South Sudan still food insecure despite increased of food production on Monday.
A new Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission released by two UN food agencies in South Sudan says that despite the seven percent increase in local food production last year, millions of citizens are still food insecure.
The report released by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Food Programmed (WFP) seen by press on Friday attributed the food insecurity to the impact of prolonged conflict and floods.
The report stated that of the country’s ten states, only Western Equatoria produced enough cereal for FAO and WFP to purchase locally to feed people in the other nine states.
