From VOA Learning English, this is the Agriculture Report.

The international community is warning of a possible famine in South Sudan if the fighting there does not end. Leaders of East African countries met recently in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. They discussed ways to stop the fighting in the world’s newest nation.

South Sudan’s government and rebel forces agreed in January to end the fighting, but it has not stopped. There has been little progress in peace talks, which are also being held in Addis Ababa. U.S. special diplomat Donald Booth spoke during the meeting of the East African Intergovernmental Authority on Development. Members of IGAD are leading the peace talks. Mr. Booth said he is deeply unhappy that neither group is respecting the cease-fire. The rainy season will come to South Sudan in just a few weeks. But, many fields remain unplanted because people have fled their homes. They are afraid of attack if they return. It is estimated that 85 percent of families in South Sudan are farmers who depend on animals and agriculture to live. Alexander Rondos is the European Union’s special diplomat to the Horn of Africa. He said officials must act quickly or there will be a famine in South Sudan. Government soldiers loyal to President Salva Kiir and those who support his former vice president Riek Machar began fighting in December. Tens of thousands of people have been killed. The United Nations says more than 700,000 people have been displaced. The U.N. says more than 200,000 of them have fled to neighboring countries including Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Sudan.
