Sudan hosts 360,000 refugees and asylum seekers
In Darfur, fighting between government forces and armed movements has continued in recent years, lately in the Jebel Marra area of Darfur. This continues to severely impact civilians, notably women and children. Inter-tribal tensions also continue to trigger conflict, which causes displacement of civilians and disruption of basic services. Conflict also prevents the return of displaced people to their areas of origin. Access to some areas, including where there is active conflict, remains denied by parties to the conflict.
• Heavy rains and flash floods in Sennar State have destroyed 1,160 houses and damaged another 1,320 homes, according to SRCS.
• On 17 June, the Government of Sudan announced a 4-month ceasefire in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.
• An estimated 1,800 newly displaced people in West Kordofan State need humanitarian assistance, according to HAC.
• In 2016, about 72,000 South Sudanese have arrived in White Nile, East Darfur, South Darfur, South and West Kordofan states.
This Dashboard provides an overview of the implementation of the 2015 Humanitarian Response Plan in Sudan that brings together 112 partners from across the UN system and non-governmental organizations to help 5.4 million people in need of emergency relief aid and other forms of humanitarian assistance. Vulnerability in Sudan - a country of 37.2 million - is driven primarily by conflict-induced displacement, chronic food insecurity and malnutrition.
