More than 7 million and an estimated 17 million people in conflict-affected South Sudan and Yemen, respectively, are expected to be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or Emergency (IPC Phase 4) through September 2019. In addition, while many areas are expected to be in Crisis! (IPC Phase 3!) in the presence of food assistance. The risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5) persists, should there be sustained lack of access to livelihoods, markets, and humanitarian assistance, for isolated populations in parts of Jonglei, Lakes, and Upper Nile states. Famine (IPC Phase 5) would also be likely in Hajjah and Sa’ada governorates should trade disruptions in Al Hudaydah port occur, where populations are already facing extreme household food deficits and are cut off from humanitarian assistance.
