BBC News looks at some of the numbers behind the crisis - in 60 seconds. Ongoing conflict in South Sudan is taking a heavy toll and the world's newest country is facing another food crisis.
Some 1.5 million people are already severely hungry, but there are concerns that number could swell by another million within six months. Recruitment of child soldiers is on the rise and fighting is expected to intensify during the coming dry season - forcing more people to flee their homes and further depleting food stocks.
