In the second projection period of April - July 2021, an estimated 7.2 million people (60%) of the population) will likely face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse acute food insecurity. An estimated 119,000 people are likely to be in Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) acute food insecurity in Akobo, Pibor, Tonj East, Tonj North, Tonj South and Aweil South.

A total of 46 counties are classified in Emergency (IPC Phase 4) acute food insecurity, 26 are classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) acute food insecurity, and 6 are classified in Stressed (IPC Phase 2) acute food insecurity.

The food insecurity levels will remain elevated due to insecurity, the effects of COVID-19, persistent poor macroeconomic conditions, and the impact of flooding on livelihoods.
