Climate change and flooding in South Sudan

Floods have worsened over the past years as South Sudan is suffering increasingly from the consequences of climate change. Floods are affecting every year between 750,000 and more than one million people, forcing half of them to leave their homeland to higher grounds.
Floods affect mostly areas along the Nile and Lol rivers and Sudd marshlands. In recent years up to half of all counties in South Sudan were affected by the floods. Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile States are the hardest hit, representing three quarters of the affected people.

    It's heartbreaking to see the impact on communities forced to flee their homes due to rising waters.

      It's crucial for the international community to prioritize support for vulnerable regions like South Sudan, both in terms of immediate relief efforts and long-term climate resilience strategies.

          This is a devastating situation that shows what negative climate impacts can do. This should act as a reminder to South Sudan and the whole globe to be more vigilant on climate action.

            This is a horrifying situation! The government should try any way possible to ensure people are not affected by these catastrophes when they happen. Not only the lives of people are endangered but also investment.
