United Nations aid chief Martin Griffiths has cautioned the Security Council about the potential for nearly five million people in Sudan to face catastrophic hunger in the upcoming months. In a note seen by Reuters, Griffiths highlighted that acute levels of hunger are being fueled by various factors, including the severe impact of conflict on agricultural production, damage to infrastructure and livelihoods, disruptions to trade flows, significant price increases, obstacles to humanitarian access, and widespread displacement.
