Description

1.6 million South Sudanese have fled the country since December 2013, many to the world’s largest refugee camp, in Uganda. What’s behind the exodus?Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Why are there so many refugees from South Sudan? South Sudan has been in a civil war for three and a half years between president Salva Kiir's army and troops loyal to Vice-President Riek Machar.The country's economy has collapsed with an overdependence on oil and an inflation rate of 20% per month.The war has led to a failure of agriculture. Half of the South Sudanese population is at risk of famine. Most refugees seek shelter in neighbouring Uganda. A camp in the north called Bidi Bidi is home to 270,000 South Sudanese refugees. In a year it has gone from being a small village to the largest refugee camp in the world. The international response has been disappointing. The UN has said that $782 million is needed to deal with the crisis. Total funding for South Sudanese refugees is just $87 million. But the flow of refugees won't stop. 2,000 people flee South Sudan every day.
