UNHCR and partners seek US$ 517 million to assist refugees in Sudan
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, together with 40 international and national partners, launched the 2022 interagency funding appeal to assist nearly one million refugees in the country.
To help meet basic needs, bolster self-reliance, and realise the rights of 925,000 refugees living in Sudan, the interagency Country Refugee Response Plan (CRP) ask for US$ 517 million. Building on the nexus framework, the 2022 CRP also looks at the essential linkages between humanitarian and development actors to work towards durable solutions.
“This document, developed in close cooperation with all partners including the Sudan’s Commission for Refugees (COR), prioritizes critical protection and lifesaving assistance for both newly arrived refugees and those living in protracted situations,” notes Axel Bisschop,
UNHCR Representative in Sudan. "We call upon the international community to support the newly launched response plan which provides strategic direction for a concerted action to support refugees across all sectors.”
Sudan is the second largest asylum country in Africa, hosting about 1.1 million refugees and asylum-seekers from South Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Central African Republic (CAR),
Chad, Syria, Yemen and other countries. With nearly 3,500 South Sudanese crossing into Sudan in January 2022, this population remains the largest group of refugees in the country – about 800,000 individuals.
