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

A combination of bad weather, pests and a deteriorating relationship with the North has led to an economic crisis that is challenging South Sudan’s food security.
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.
