HIGHLIGHTS

  • Conflict displaces up to 195,000 individuals from areas of Jebel Marra since January

  • FEWS NET projects above-average harvests, reduced food insecurity in most areas of Sudan

  • Health actors record nearly 4,600 cases of AWD since late August

KEY DEVELOPMENTS

  • Recent UN and interagency assessments found nutrition, shelter, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) concerns, among other humanitarian needs, in South Kordofan State. The assessments also highlighted challenging operating conditions for relief actors in Sudan, largely due to ongoing Government of Sudan (GoS)-imposed access constraints.

  • A USAID/OFDA partner temporarily suspended operations in South Darfur State’s Gereida Locality due to early-November intercommunal conflict, which resulted in civilian fatalities, armed robberies, and damage to property and crops. As of mid-November, the partner had resumed health, nutrition, and WASH activities in Gereida.

  • The USAID/OFDA-supported UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) has facilitated the transport of humanitarian personnel and emergency food and other critical supplies to an estimated 40 locations across Sudan since January and continues to support emergency evacuations, as needed.
