Rein Paulsen (FAO) on the food insecurity situation in Sudan - Press Conference

Mr. Rein Paulsen, Director of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Office of Emergencies and Resilience, briefs on the food insecurity situation in Sudan.

After nearly 11 months of civil war, almost 18 million people in Sudan are facing acute food insecurity. This is the highest number ever recorded during a harvest season. Without urgent humanitarian assistance and access to basic commodities, people experiencing emergency levels of acute hunger or Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) Phase 4 - of which there are almost 5 million people - could slip into catastrophic food insecurity in the coming months. Additionally, Sudan is facing the world's largest displacement crisis, with more than 8 million people having been displaced since the conflict started in April 2023.
