In the series of radio talk shows on protection and human rights considerations during COVID-19, the FAO South Sudan Representative, Mr. Meshack Malo, highlighted the impacts of COVID-19 on livelihoods and the need to guarantee the dignified access to adequate food to all persons. Closure of borders, restrictions on movement and challenges for distribution of agricultural tools and seeds are hampering the humanitarian response. The most vulnerable groups need to be protected during COVID-19 time to not fall in food insecurity situations. Photo: © UNHCR/Mary-Sanyu Osire
