This independant evaluation examined the work of the World Food Programme Emergency Operation (EMOP) in Darfur in Western Sudan from April 2004 to December 2005. The purposes of this evaluation were threefold:
- Accountability not just to WFP's Executive Board and donors, but to the extent possible and practical, to beneficiaries and cooperating partners. In the discussions in Rome prior to the start of the fieldwork WFP's Office of Evaluation stressed that accountability should be the primary focus of this evaluation.
- Guidance for the operation.
On 5 May 2006 the Government of Sudan (GoS) and one rebel group, SLM-Minawi, signed the Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA). This ceasefi re and peace agreement was the result of intense pressure from the international community and the African Union (AU) Peace and Security Council on both the parties and the mediators in the hope of ending the killing and human rights violations in Darfur. Six previous rounds of talks and the agreements they produced had failed to accomplish this.
Yet it quickly became apparent that, like previous agreements, the DPA was doomed to fail.
En el origen del proyecto que ha dado lugar a la creación del Observatorio de la Acción Humanitaria percibíamos la necesidad de hacer un seguimiento estable de la acción humanitaria en nuestro país, compartiendo un sentimiento muy extendido por aquellos que buscan la mejora del trabajo solidario a través de la reflexión, la discusión franca y la crítica (y autocrítica). Con esa intención los Informes anuales, iniciados con el análisis de 2003, pretenden ir cubriendo ese hueco, con clara vocación de permanencia y de apertura a la colaboración con la comunidad humanitaria española.

Juba Customs Market Cleared
In February 2005 an ammunition bunker exploded in the centre of Juba town, causing massive damage in the immediate area and throwing out thousands of items of ordnance. The explosion killed 39 people and injured 90. Significant damage was inflicted on the Custom Market, destroying three quarters of this important city center.
Breaches of the ceasefire provisions of the Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA) continued in November and December. November saw the build up of militia rumoured to be supported by the Government of Sudan (GoS) and increased fighting between rebel groups.

WHO delegation visits Juba
Senior WHO officers from the Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office (EMRO) and the WHO Representative of Sudan visited Juba, Southern Sudan from December 6 to 9, 2006 to liaise with the Ministry of Health of the Government of Southern Sudan and be updated on the activities of WHO Southern Sudan.
Lack of access for humanitarian operations in Darfur: The problem and challenge of inaccessibility in Darfur continued in December unchanged.
"Vous ne devez pas expliquer à ces enfants ce que c'est la guerre. Ils l'ont vécue », raconte Abakar Adam, professeur dans une école coranique dans l'un des blocs qui constituent le camp de réfugiés de Djabal, au Tchad oriental. « Leurs villages ont été attaqués et ils ont expérimenté la peur. Je n'ai pas besoin de leur expliquer pourquoi ils sont là.
"You don't have to explain to these children what war is - they've lived it," says Abakar Adam, a professor at a Koranic school in one of the blocks that makes up the Djabal Refugee Camp in Eastern Chad. "They have seen their villages attacked and they have experienced fear.
"Life has changed much around here," says Fatima with a proud twinkle in her eyes as she walks around the Djabal refugee camp in Eastern Chad. The site is located just a few dozen kilometers from the border with the Sudanese region of Darfur, which she and her family fled three years ago. Here Fatima and the rest of the refugees have begun to take control of their lives.
As a result Djabal is clean and orderly and Fatima has developed the confidence of an active woman who works for her community and earns a little money for her children.

Agricultural Training Supports Southern Families
Due to insecurity, unpredictable weather extremes, a high number of returnees, and limited resources, food production is an acute challenge for many families in Upper Nile State, Southern Sudan. To assist these communities in reviving their agricultural livelihoods, USAID partner Food for the Hungry International (FHI) is working to restore food security for more than 10,000 families-approximately 80,000 people-in Upper Nile.
Under the USAID-funded program, FHI works in coordination with three Sudanese nongovernmental organizations to …

Bruxelles, le 29 décembre 2006 - Le SG/HR salue l'acceptation, par le président Béchir, des mesures de soutien des Nations Unies à la force de l'Union Africaine dans le Darfour, et notamment le déploiement d'une force internationale hybride (Union Africaine/ONU).
Ces mesures doivent maintenant, de manière urgente, être intégralement mises en oeuvre afin de contribuer à la résolution de la crise du Darfour.

In 2006, Sudan continues to cope with the effects of conflict, displacement, and insecurity. The formation of the joint Government of National Unity (GNU) was a requirement of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that the former Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) signed in January 2005, officially ending Africa's longest running civil war.
