South Sudan due to compounding shocks, including flooding, ongoing conflict, displacement, and cost of living. The impact is expected to result in another year of livestock and crop losses and has eroded the livelihoods and coping strategies of vulnerable communities across
the country.

In order to address the interlinkages between food insecurity and children’s protection and well-being in South Sudan, it is essential that humanitarian actors, government, and donors commit to addressing children’s protection needs and safeguard children from the effects
of the hunger crisis.
