The food security and nutrition crisis in South Kordofan, Sudan is rapidly deteriorating. In this report, an international non-governmental organization assesses the situation based on findings from the region from August 5 to August 19, 2012. Along with the publication, the Enough Project has published a short summary of recommendations for policy makers and an infographic on key statistics from the report.
Editor's Note: The following report documents findings from a rapid food security and nutritional assessment conducted in South Kordofan state from August 5 to August 19, 2012 by an international non-governmental organization. Due to security concerns, the organization wishes to remain anonymous, but requested that the Enough Project publish the report to further corroborate existing evidence of the humanitarian disaster unfolding today in Sudan. The Enough Project was solely responsible for the report’s final productionand distribution but did not contribute to its content or findings.
Experts in health assessments in humanitarian crises at The John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health vetted the assessment and found its research and methodology to be sound and its findings to be credible. The assessment was comprised of Mid-Upper Arm Circumference, or MUAC, screenings that were conducted on children 6-59 months-old and standard food security questionnaires that were administered to heads of households.
