This year Indonesia is only capable of processing around 400,000 ton of cocoa from the targeted amount of 600,000 ton for one year. Photo credit: NurPhoto / Getty Images.

Traders sell vegetables in an empty stocked market in Akuem, outside Aweil, on October 12, 2016. More than 50% of the cultivation has been lost in the area due to dry spells, floods and plant deseases. Since March 2016, more than 70,000 people from Northen Bahr al Ghazal migrated to the neighbouring country Sudan due to the lack of food and the inflation in the market. According to the Food Security Outlook Update released by Famine Early Warning System Network (Fews Net) in September, in Northern Bahr el Ghazal, some households are in Catastrophe phase level (IPC Phase 5), as they suffer from extreme lack of food, with households facing significant food consumption gaps, high levels of malnutrition and mortality.
