Agriculture

South Sudan

Currently, only about 4% of South Sudan’s arable land is reportedly utilised for agriculture, yet over 70% of the country’s population are engaged in the sector to improve their livelihoods.

In February 2014 South Sudan’s agriculture and forestry ministry announced plans for a comprehensive master plan, seeking to revive the largely dormant sector, as part of plans to diversify the country’s economy.

Al Jazeera English | South Sudan facing food crisis | 30 April 2012

Ongoing clashes with Khartoum over the countries’ contested border area have halted the import of cheap food goods from the North, leaving Juba to rely on high-cost goods imported from southern neighbour Uganda. Another full-scale war between the two rival Sudans would make an already tough situation much worse.
Al Jazeera’s Peter Greste reports from Juba.
