From the January 2020 IPC analysis workshop: In the projection period of February to April 2020, 6.01 million
people (51.4% of the population) will likely face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse acute food insecurity, with 20,000 people in the counties of Akobo and Duk estimated to be in Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5). In the projection period of May to July 2020, a total of 6.48 million people (55.4% of the population) will face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or
worse acute food insecurity, which is 5% lower than was projected for the 2019 lean season. The projection analyses have both factored in the presence of likely humanitarian food assistance.
