Conflict and Famine in South Sudan

The International Crisis Group published on 26 April 2017 a report titled "Instruments of Pain (II): Conflict and Famine in South Sudan."

Some 100,000 South Sudanese are now suffering famine conditions with another 5.5 million at risk. The UN has requested $1.6 billion to address the humanitarian crisis but received pledges so far of only $439 million. This crisis has been caused largely by poor leadership and governance in South Sudan.
