Chronic food insecurity in Sudan threatens lives, livelihoods and stability. Due to prolonged conflict, environmental deterioration and other disasters such as drought and floods, many of Sudan’s people are at risk of food insecurity.
USAID's Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) provides timely food security information for Sudan and other countries that allows donors to monitor emerging crises and respond to needs early. As part of the early warning system, FEWS NET identifies populations affected by food insecurity and describes the underlying factors in regular quarterly forecasts and occasional alerts that highlight immediate concerns. USAID also supports activities that strengthen the abilities of Sudanese organizations to recognize and manage food insecurity threats.
