Find out how the UK will respond to opportunities and challenges, what is being achieved for the UK and who we are working with.
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.
