Summary of needs, targets & requirements
Humanitarian needs & key figures
Substantial humanitarian action is urgently required in Sudan in 2014.Overall, a total of 6.9 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance including life-saving interventions, protection from conflict and violence, strengthening household and community coping mechanisms and, where conditions permit, supporting longer-term solutions to the plight of internally displaced people (IDPs) and refugees.
The UN and partners have agreed on the following strategic objectives for 2014:
No agreement yet on a temporary cessation of hostilities in South Kordofan and Blue Nile to allow polio vaccinations for children under five.
International support for the Government’s flood response efforts continue, as the Government revises the number of “affected” people to 340,000.
At least 18,000 displaced people in camps in Darfur have been badly affected by flooding and are in urgent need of assistance.
• On 7 April, the International Donor Conference for Darfur began in Doha, seeking $7.2 billion for recovery, reconstruction and development in Darfur.
• WFP starts food distributions to some 51,000 people in Blue Nile State for the first time since September 2011.
• Thousands of people take refuge near the UNAMID team sites in Muhajeriya and Labado towns in East Darfur following fighting between SAF and SLA-MM.
• Inter-tribal conflict leads to new civilian displacement in Central and South Darfur.
HIGHLIGHTS IN THE 4TH QUARTER

Inside this issue
- The Tripartite is still waiting for approval to deliver humanitarian assistance in SPLM-N areas in South Kordofan and Blue Nile.
- New report by FAO, WFP and IFAD states that the proportion of undernourished people in Sudan has decreased by 6.4 per cent over the past 20 years.
- 2012 sorghum production is expected to be more than double the 2011 harvest and about 15 per cent above the 2007-2011 average.
The Mid-Year Review of the 2012 Sudan Humanitarian Work Plan (HWP) comes at a time of growing concern for Sudan.
In Darfur, approximately 3.2 million people currently receive food aid. This includes some 1.7 million IDPs registered in camps.
In the disputed Abyei Area over 100,000 people remain displaced, mostly in Agok and South Sudan. Approximately 5,000 returns have been observed so far.
In South Kordofan and Blue Nile States, an estimated 500,000 people remain internally displaced or severely affected by on-going ghting.
• In Blue Nile, fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – North continues.
• In South Kordofan, a multi-sectoral monitoring mission comprised of state authorities and UN agencies has left Kadugli for Abu Jubaiha and Talodi.
• In Abyei, UNISFA reports an increase in the number of returns north of the Bahr el Arab/Kiir River, now standing at around 4,800 people.
• In South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N) continues to affect civilians.
• Civilians continue to cross into South Sudan and Ethiopia, bringing the total of Sudanese refugees in these countries to more than 130,000.
• In South Kordofan, up to 153,000 children could miss the upcoming Polio National Immunisation campaign due to ongoing fighting.
• In Abyei, returnees north of the Bahr el Arab/Kiir River need food and shelter assistance.
The analysis of the different realities in Sudan (Darfur, Abyei, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile, as well as North-South returns) suggests that significant humanitarian needs will remain in 2012. Although continuous engagement will be required in 2012, the European Commission humanitarian funding support will mainly depend on three elements 1) needs, 2) access and 3)the capacity to implement humanitarian activities in a principled way. The latter elements remain important constraints in Sudan.
