The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) warns about a looming food crisis in Sudan driven by the combined impacts of armed conflict, low production of key staple crops and economic turmoil. A multi-partner Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis, indicates a significant deepening in Sudan’s food crisis. A record 11.7 million people, almost a quarter of the country's population, are projected to be facing acute hunger at the height of the lean season in September— an increase by nearly 2 million people compared with the same period last year.
