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.
