Western Bahr el Ghazal State – South Sudan

Food systems in Western Bahr el Ghazal (WBeG) State, South Sudan, are in dire crisis because of multiple shocks and stressors, persisting conflict and violence, climate change, and natural resource deterioration. However, building upon South Sudan’s National Food Systems Dialogue, ample opportunities exist to build food systems resilience in WBeG through strengthening the capacity of people to produce and access nutritious and culturally acceptable food over time and space in the face of natural and/or man-made shocks and stressors.

This report provides a rationale for building food systems resilience in South Sudan by introducing its concept and operationalisation (part 1 of this report), presenting the main findings of the food systems resilience dialogue that took place in WBeG State (part 2), and introducing the main pathways identified to build food systems resilience in the State (part 3).
