Sudan

Summary

Sudan is a failing state. The country suffers from chronic underdevelopment following cycles of conflict over the last 5 decades. In 2013, the conflicts within Sudan’s borders intensified, and early 2014 has seen the worst humanitarian situation in Darfur since the star t of the conflict 10 years ago. At least 6.1 million people are judged to be in need of humanitarian assistance across the country. The recent crisis in South Sudan has also led to an influx of refugees in the southern border states of Sudan. The country is experiencing political stalemate, and the federal government undermines democratic and accountable governance and drives inequality, focusing its spending on Khartoum to the neglect of peripheral states. Sudan is off track on the majority of the MDGs.

Top priorities

  • providing protection and life-saving humanitarian support to people affected by conflict, while building the resilience of communities to cope with shocks
  • improving sustainable access to basic services such as water and sanitation for the most vulnerable
  • helping vulnerable people to cope with economic instability, such as price increases and cuts to government spending
  • investing in the private sector and civil society, to lay the foundations for a more democratic, peaceful and prosperous future
