Contexte
Aweil East County in NBeG (Northern Bahr el Ghazal State) is situated at the contentious border area between Sudan and South Sudan. NBeG has a population size of 353,351 people. It received the highest returnees and is expecting about 20,000 (17.2% of the all returnees coming to South Sudan). Aweil East is characterized by high malnutrition rates with 28.7% and 6% Global Acute Malnutrition and Severe Acute Malnutrition respectively. Chronic underproduction in agriculture in NBeG State contributes to widespread food insecurity. Households are not able to produce at a level that sustains their household needs. Opportunities for additional income generation are limited. The current status of water, sani-tation, and hygiene in NBeG are below satisfactory levels. 97.2% of the population practices open defecation and do not have sanitation facilities. Only 30% of the population mentioned washing their hands three or more times a day. ACF`s integrated nutrition, FSL & WASH activities will be oriented towards tackling immediate & underlying causes of malnutrition.

Présentation

ACF will use an integrated approach focusing on nutrition, food security and livelihoods, and WASH. NBeG is one of the vulnerable states at risk of nutrition emergencies in South Sudan. ACF is an experienced partner who has been carrying out nutrition interventions in NBeG for several years.
