An estimated 623,000 people were affected and displaced by floods in South Sudan since May 2021. People in Jonglei and Unity states, followed by Northern Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile states have been the worst affected to date.In September, some 171,000 people were reached with food assistance; 136,000 people reached with shelter and non-food item assistance as of 30 September; and over 85,000 people were reached with health services as of 11 October.Continued heavy rains, infrastructure damage and reduced physical accessibility, funding constraints and insecurity have hampered the flood response especially in remote areas. The Shelter/NFI Cluster requires an additional $8.2 million to meet the rising needs.Flood mitigation measures have helped to reduce the impact of flooding in areas like Bor town and Pibor. Canoes and boats have and continue to be critical for mobile teams to reach people who remain isolated by the floods.
