Sudan is still one of the world’s largest protracted humanitarian situations with needs mainly generated by the impact of conflict and related displacement, malnutrition, food insecurity and more recently macro-economic adjustments. There are almost 2 million IDPs and according to UNHCR, Sudan hosts 1.2 million refugees; and recent clashes in parts of Jebel Marra have led to new displacement. Acute malnutrition in children under the age of five is above emergency thresholds in various areas across the country and 4.8 million people are food insecure. Despite operational challenges and funding constraints, some 87 humanitarian partners have reached 1.8 million people with some form of assistance in the second quarter of the year; in the first quarter, partners were able to reach 2 million people.
