The civil war decimated whatever development gains the country made since it became the world’s youngest nation in 2011. The economy has collapsed, with basic food staples now out-of-reach for many South Sudanese, while families in rural areas have not been able to plant their crops because of fighting. This has left more than five million people without enough to eat. In February 2017, a famine was officially declared in two areas of Unity State. An increase in aid helped to improve food security conditions in these two counties, reversing the famine classification, however, millions are still at-risk of starvation across the country. The fighting has also uprooted nearly four million South Sudanese from their homes. Half of them are displaced inside the country.
