SKBN Rainy Season Update July – November, 2016

(6 December 2016) In Central Region, South Kordofan a severe decline in food security is imminent due to: a) failure of rains in August impacting the early harvest of sorghum, b) struggling markets due to SSP hyperinflation, and c) increasing numbers of returnees and IDPs due to the closure of the Yida refugee camp and ongoing displacement caused by pre-rainy season advances made by SAF. Blue Nile also faces declines in humanitarian conditions due to increasing localised conflict with Maban communities hosting refugees.
