Situation overview

Humanitarian organizations continued to respond to the emergency needs of about 170,000 Sudanese refugees in Upper Nile and Unity states, where hygiene and sanitation campaigns were of utmost concern to partners on the ground. Seasonal flooding has affected almost all of South Sudan’s states, with relief organizations carrying out assessments and mobilizing response operations to people affected by the floods.

On the food security front, the food inflation rate increased by 73 per cent year-to-year as of June, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, eroding the purchasing power of South Sudanese households.
