This Humanitarian Snapshot provides an overview of the humanitarian situation in Sudan, as of 30 June 2016, using information obtained from UN agencies and partners, including the Government of Sudan. People living in protracted displacement in Darfur since 2003 and those displaced or affected by conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile States since 2011 account for most people in need of humanitarian aid.
In Sortony and Tawilla, authorities halted IOM registration and verification processes in mid-February. As a result, figures underwent revision and have now been amended according to WFP's latest beneficiary figure in July.
In Boori and Wadi Boori, confirmation of reported displacement in the area and / or to other areas is still not possible due to lack of humanitarian access.
An outbreak of Hepatitis E virus has been declared in Sortony, North Darfur, with 134 suspected cases of Acute Jaundice Syndrome reported.
Since early June, 74 cases of suspected measles have been reported among refugees and the host community in Al Lait, North Darfur.
About 80,000 people have been affected by heavy rains and flooding across Sudan in 2016.

Between 159,000 and 194,000 civilians have reportedly been displaced from the Jebel Marra area in Sudan’s Darfur region since mid-January as a result of hostilities between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Abdul Wahid faction of the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA/AW). This includes over 75,000 people who have been registered, verified or assisted.

The response to the recommendations from the synthesis evaluation (global MRP) was prepared by the Funding Coordination Section, in consultation with relevant branches and sections, and reviewed and approved by the Director of Corporate Programs. This draft global MRP was then circulated to the Pooled Fund Working Group (PFWG) for comments and consideration.
As of 31 July 2016, UN-coordinated Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP), Flash Appeals and Regional Refugee Plans as covered by the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) require US$21.9 billion to meet the needs of 96.9 million people affected by humanitarian crises in 40 countries. The appeals are funded at $7.2 billion, with unmet requirements totalling $14.7 billion. Overall, donors have contributed $13.7 billion towards humanitarian operations in 2016 and pledged a further $814.4 million.
In June, displacement of civilians due to conflict continued in the Greater Bahr El Ghazal and Greater Equatoria regions. In Western Bahr El Ghazal, heavy fighting in Raja town on 15 June, reportedly caused civilians to flee in multiple directions, including to nearby counties, across the border to Sudan, and to Aweil West, where local authorities reported the arrival of more than 3,700 displaced people.
Chad faces a numerous simultaneous and inter-connected humanitarian crises in a broader context of chronic vulnerability.
Insecurity in the region has caused significant population movement from neighbouring countries (Sudan, CAR, Nigeria) as well as internal displacement.
Meanwhile, millions are affected by food insecurity and malnutrition, especially in the Sahel belt. In terms of health, the prevalence of some epidemics (measles, malaria) persists. Lastly, recurrent natural disasters such as droughts and floods are exacerbated by the El Niño phenomenon.
