Millions of livestock have been displaced by the on-going conflict in South Sudan leading to outbreaks of various animal diseases, according to the Food and Agricultural Organization.
FAO representative to South Sudan Sue Lautze says the migration of livestock has also raised tensions between pastoralist and farming communities.
She says the organization along with its partners is leading efforts to combat disease outbreaks and maintain the animal health care system.
“So the FAO and partners are trying to step in to manage the animal health risks. I addition we try to understand and mitigate any kind of risks of conflict,” Ms Lautze told Eye Radio.
FAO is seeking $89 million to improve the food security to millions of vulnerable people in South Sudan while further expanding its development efforts.
