In Darfur, over two million people have been internally displaced as a result of conflict since 2003. In addition, there are over 300,000 Darfuri refugees in Chad. Exact numbers of displaced people are hard to determine as some have been displaced on multiple occasions, some were displaced temporarily while others remained displaced for many years, and some are in camps while others are in host communities or left the area. In South Kordofan and Blue Nile, well over a million people have been displaced or severely affected by conflict since 2011.
August 13, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – Three airplanes carrying Qatari and Ethiopian relief for the Sudanese affected by the recent floods have arrived in Khartoum on Tuesday as fresh official figures pointed that the number of the affected population has reached 23.000 people.
Two of the three planes were from Qatar in line with orders of Sheik Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani and besides 80 tons of relief items were also carrying a search and rescue team.
- Rainfall deficits grow along the Gulf of Guinea, while dryness persists in eastern Sudan.
1) A delayed start of the rainfall season across northwestern Ethiopia, southern Eritrea, and bordering areas in Sudan has begun to negatively impact cropping activities, including planting. Heavy rains are, however, forecast during the next outlook period, which could provide some relief to dry conditions throughout the region.
Heavy and above-average rains fell in Sudan, causing flooding and infrastructure damages.

Dryness worsens across Sudan, Eritrea and northwest Ethiopia.
Abnormal dryness develops across bi-modal areas in Ghana and southern Togo.
1) A migratory locust outbreak in October-November was accelerated with the landfall of Tropical Cyclone Haruna in February, which provided favorable conditions for locust breeding throughout western Madagascar. This large-scale outbreak should subside with cooler weather in July-August.
• Food insecurity has declined in many parts of East Africa as household food supplies increased, following the end of the March to June season. Nevertheless, over 12 million people are likely to remain in Stressed (IPC Phase 2), Crisis (IPC Phase 3), and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) through September.
Rains continue to recover across the Sahel of West Africa, while rainfall deficits develop along the Gulf of Guinea.
Seasonal rainfall deficits grow and expand into eastern/central Sudan.
1) During much of May and the beginning of June, intermittent and insufficient rains had increased rainfall deficits over parts of northeastern Nigeria, resulting in poor NDVI values and delayed planting. However, recent moderate to heavy rains have decreased seasonal rainfall deficits and expected rains should be enough to satisfy cropping requirements.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS
NAIROBI, 12 June 2013 (IRIN) - The UN and the African Union must step forward and take decisive action to stop Sudan from committing war crimes against civilians in Blue Nile State, says a new Amnesty International report, dismissed as "false" by Khartoum.
"There has been no acknowledgement by the [UN] Security Council of the fact that Sudan is carrying out indiscriminate aerial bombardment. They need to press Sudan to stop," Jean-Baptiste Gallopin, Amnesty International's Sudan researcher, told IRIN.
When war broke out in Sudan’s Blue Nile state in September 2011, waves of refugees numbering in the tens of thousands poured out of the southern half of the state, fleeing indiscriminate aerial bombings and deliberate ground attacks by Sudanese military forces. Now, nearly two years later, some 150,000 people from Blue Nile state languish in a string of refugee camps in neighboring Ethiopia and South Sudan, and tens of thousands more have been forcibly displaced within Sudan.
More than 300,000 people have been displaced by inter-tribal fighting or conflict between armed movements and the government since January 2013. In South Kordofan and Blue Nile, according to figures from the Government’s Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC) for government-controlled areas and from the Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Agency (SRRA) for SPLM-N areas, over a million people remain displaced or severely affected by fighting.
