The current global El Niño event is considered one of the strongest on record.

This has caused reduced cultivation areas, delayed planting, poor pastures and limited water availability for both people and their livestock. These impacts are threatening essential agricultural and livestock production across Sudan.

This year, flooding began at least one month earlier than normal. An estimated 410,785 people have already been directly affected -- a total of over 82,157 households. If the current pattern continues, it is expected that the situation will deteriorate considerably, particularly given that mid-August to early September is the normal peak of flooding.

AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THE 2007 WORK PLAN

Sudan is at a critical moment in its history. With the right choices, prosperity for its people will become a reality. While these choices are the responsibility of the Sudanese people and their Governments, a significant opportunity exists for a strengthened partnership between the Sudan and the United Nations and Partners; particularly in accelerating the shift towards recovery and development. Such a shift has a role to play in supporting peace and changing the lives of millions for the better.
