Sudan: UNJLC Logistics Bulletin 87, Apr 2007



UNJLC has completed a light vehicle expedition from Khartoum to Juba. The journey was prepared in cooperation with UNDSS and WFP. Based on experiences and data collection en route, UNJLC's GIS Unit in Juba is currently compiling detailed information on North - South surface transport routes and their limitations.

Recently updated 'Roads: Practicability and Seasonal Conditions' map for Southern Sudan is available from the GIS/mapping Unit in Juba.

The FEWS NET Darfur Rain Timeline and Seven Day Forecast will be posted weekly on the UNJLC website throughout the rainy season.

In light of the upcoming rainy season, UNJLC and CARE are organising free of charge surface cargo transport to Darfur for humanitarian agencies.

The next UNJLC/UNDSS light vehicle convoy to Darfur will be departing the 16th of May. This convoy is open to all agencies/NGO's interested.
