Land use, conflict 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.  These dynamics 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, while there is a real risk that aid actors may unintentionally fuel conflict and undermine existing land tenure systems.
