South Sudan -

On September 9th, the United Nations (U.N.) Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP) announced ramped up efforts to reverse dire malnutrition in South Sudan. The programs have launched a joint enhanced nutrition response plan covering all states in South Sudan. The initiative is anticipated to reach more than two million people with treatment and other efforts to help prevent malnutrition through May 2016.

On September 10th, South Sudan’s parliament voted unanimously to adopt the peace deal signed last month by President Salva Kiir and former Vice President and opposition leader Riek Machar. President Kiir signed the agreement on August 27th, but with reservations. Although the deal paved the way for a permanent ceasefire between government and rebel forces, clashes have continued, causing the U.N. to issue a warning that it could impose sanctions if the deal collapses.
