In 2012-2015, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the European Commission (EC) supported a pilot demonstration project on Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) in Sudan. The Eco-DRR project was implemented in partnership with the National Government, the State Government of North Darfur, Practical Action, and local communitybased organizations.
Making even a basic living in Kassala State in Eastern Sudan is extremely challenging. Most of the population, many of whom have been displaced during the recent conflicts, are dependent on agriculture to survive. Drought, exacerbated by climate change, is making livelihoods more and more precarious. Fierce competition between pastoralists and farmers can flare up over limited land and water resources.
Practical Action has been working with local communities to address some of their problems.
A report from Mohamed Siddiq, Practical Action's team leader for reducing vulnerability in Sudan
Mohammed Siddiq continues to co-ordinate Practical Action's work - promoting long term, sustainable development in war torn Darfur. Like all of Practical Action's staff in Sudan he comes from the country and is himself a Darfurian. This gives him a greater understanding of local context, but also means that when other international NGOs were asked to leave the region by the Sudanese Government, Practical Action was able to work on.
