International assistance has played a significant and multi-faceted role in Sudan for decades, with far reaching implications. We in the aid community are increasingly aware of the conflict sensitivity risks and opportunities associated with our work. Ongoing political developments in Sudan will not remove these challenges, but do offer new opportunities for donors and implementing agencies to develop and adopt more conflict-sensitive practices and policies.
The Conflict Sensitivity Facility (CSF) is being hosted by Saferworld. It is funded by the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) for a pilot period of one year, to develop and test innovative approaches to help the aid community in Sudan maximise positive impacts whilst minimising harm.
