Food Insecurity Looms For South Sudan After Floods Wipe Out Crops

Aid groups are predicting a sharp increase in food insecurity in South Sudan after weeks of torrential rain destroyed thousands of acres of cropland and washed away livestock and grazing pasture. The country's lean season - the period between harvests -  is now expected to come as early as January 2020.
