Development work in South Sudan
South Sudan is one of the world’s most fragile countries and has been beset by conflict since it was created in 2011. It is facing a severe and protracted humanitarian crisis, exacerbated by economic collapse. It has one of the highest inflation rates in the world, and a huge fiscal deficit. Half of the population requires emergency food assistance. Over 4 million South Sudanese (out of a population of 12 million) are displaced, including over 2 million refugees who have fled to neighbouring countries.
