Humanosphere Examines Potential Famine In South Sudan

Humanosphere: Restricted aid access pushes parts of South Sudan back to the brink of famine
Humanosphere reporter Tom Murphy discusses the humanitarian situation in South Sudan. He writes, “… the fighting forces are limiting the ability for aid to reach some of South Sudan’s most vulnerable people. The situation is similar to last year when aid groups warned of a potential famine. … The dire predictions were not realized last year, but faced with the same outlook again, famine is a real possibility for some parts of South Sudan” (11/2).
