During the first quarter of 2018, about 1,200 people were displaced as a result of internal fighting between SLA-AW factions in East Jebel Marra locality in November and December 2017 and arrived in Otash camp, South Darfur. There have been reports of displacement as a result of fighting between Government forces and non-state actors in East Jebel Marra.
During the first four months of 2018, the Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) allocated over US$23 million.
The first allocation of $3 million aimed to improve sanitation and to prevent Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD) outbreaks in West Kordofan, Red Sea, and White Nile states for both refugee and host communities.
Humanitarian needs in Sudan are substantive, and the country has consistently ranked since 2003 among the top recipients of humanitarian assistance globally.
The principle instrument for humanitarian assistance is the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP). It maps the humanitarian response for the whole country. Support for the HRP has been on the decline in recent years.
Whereas in 2015, the HRP was 58 per cent funded, in 2017 it received 45% of the total $804 million needed to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance in Sudan.
Heavy rain and flooding since early June have affected over 99,000 people and destroyed over 19,000 houses in many parts of Sudan, according to the Government of Sudan and partners. The most affected states are White Nile, South Darfur, North Kordofan, Al Gezira, Sennar, West Darfur and Kassala.
The 2017 Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) partners are requesting US$804 million to assist 4 million people in need across the country. As of 24 September 2017, HRP 2017 partners received $304 million – representing only 38% of the total amount. This low funding is set to have an immediate and dire impact on the lives and well-being of thousands of people humanitarian partners are serving in Sudan.
During the first eight months of 2017, the Sudan Humanitarian Fund allocated a total of almost $22 million through the first allocation and the Reserve for Emergencies.
The Emergency Relief Coordinator has allocated $45 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for the 2017 second underfunded emergencies round to assist vulnerable people in four neglected crises. The funds will support life-saving relief operations in Afghanistan, the Central African Republic (CAR), Chad and Sudan, where humanitarian suffering is alarmingly high, but available resources are critically low.
This Dashboard provides an overview of the implementation of the 2016 Humanitarian Response Plan in Sudan that brought together 80 UN and NGO partners to help 4.6 million people in need of emergency relief and other humanitarian assistance. Vulnerability in Sudan - a country of 38.4 million - is driven primarily by displacement, food insecurity and malnutrition.
The 5 Facts About South Sudanese Refugees in Sudan is part of a series of posters about main humanitarian needs in Sudan, highlighting key facts and statistics.

In Darfur, intermittent conflict and inter-communal tensions continue to impact civilians, notably women and children, and also prevent the return of displaced people to their areas of origin. While in some areas access has improved, access to other areas, including where there is active conflict, remains restricted.
