In Focus: Conflicts in South Sudan and Sudan
By Angelia Sanders
The major development affecting UNHCR operations in Sudan was the increase in the Security Phase (II to III in Khartoum, Blue Nile State and Eastern States, III to IV in Darfur). This led to the relocation of humanitarian personnel from Darfur and UN staff dependents from Khartoum. UNHCR was able to continue most of its work in Darfur with fewer staff by identifying and prioritising protection and assistance activities. In other parts of the country, operations continued without major disruption.
