Sudan and South Sudan – Ongoing floods in the neighbouring countries of Sudan and South Sudan have affected more than 700,000 people since the start of the rainy season in July this year. Around 100,000 of those affected in South Sudan were initially displaced by floods last year and have not been able to return home since. Heavy rains, infrastructure damage and reduced physical accessibility, funding constraints and insecurity have hampered the flood response, humanitarian agencies say.
