You’ve now reached the end of this course. We hope it was useful and has motivated you, and given you some new tools for better understanding the conflicts currently happening in Sudan. We also hope that you are in a better position to understand how aid can interact with those conflicts – for better or worse. If you’d like to go deeper and practically apply some of these ideas in person and with others, join us for one of our in-person Conflict Analysis courses, or some of the other courses that the CSF offers.
Thanks, and hope that we’ll get to interact with you again soon!

Land Conflicts and Aid in Sudan
Land use patterns and trends in Sudan are inextricably tied to a wide range of dynamics that shape the country’s potential for both peace and conflict. This course will briefly explore the main features of these dynamics and how they interact with the massive humanitarian relief and development efforts currently underway in Sudan, which have the potential to drive or mitigate potential land-based conflicts.
This course is only offered online, and provides a very rich overview of the various factors that contribute to violent land conflicts as well as peaceful management of land. It should be considered necessary knowledge for anyone working on WASH, infrastructure, camp management, returns, food security, livelihoods or governance. The course covers:
- Historical and traditional patterns of land use that shape dynamics today
- Current land uses that interact with conflict, including pastoralism, farming, and mining
- Case studies of land conflict in Darfur, Gedarif and South Kordofan
- Conflict sensitivity risks and opportunities for the aid sector in Sudan
