Suite à la résolution 1769 votée par le Conseil de sécurité de l'ONU sur le déploiement d'une force hybride au Darfour, Action contre la Faim salue cette avancée significative mais appelle toujours à une solution politique négociée.

- L'acceptation à l'unanimité de cette résolution, ainsi que son acceptation immédiate par le gouvernement Soudanais, sont une avancée certaine dans ces négociations internationales.

Pourtant Action contre la Faim rappelle que :

- Une force de maintien de la paix doit œuvrer dans une zone en paix.

In southern Sudan, rice proves to be a more viable solution

Action Against Hunger has served beneficiaries in the swampy upper Nile region of southern Sudan since 2001-one of Africa's most underdeveloped areas. Its markets are poorly developed, it has few facilities for health or education, and its lack of infrastructure makes improving the region difficult. The areas we've served, including Toch, Old Fangak and Nyadin, are inaccessible by road. You can fly there or you can walk there, but the only other transportation option is boating among the local villages.

Witnessing the atrocities affecting Darfur's population on a daily basis, Action Against Hunger's teams are among those NGO's still present in this hard-hit province of Sudan. From its presence on the ground, the following can be concluded: as the conflict is spreading and the number of instigators of violence is growing, an armed and non-negotiated intervention would seem dangerous. An intervention would most likely make an already bad situation even worse, triggering yet more violence. Somalia and Iraq have demonstrated this.
