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 for three consecutive seasons as a result of fighting. This has left an estimated six million people without enough to eat. In February, 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.
