Climate-fragility risk brief: Sudan

The Climate-Fragility Risk Brief on Sudan explores the intersection of climate change, foreign policy, and security risks in the country (as of 2020). The brief highlights the ways in which environmental degradation, climate change, and conflict are interlinked and can undermine the government’s legitimacy and capacity. It also identifies two levels of entry points for addressing climate-fragility risks in Sudan: improving capacities to cope and adapt to climate and environmental change and improving the management of the knock-on effects of climate and environmental change through community stabilisation and peacebuilding, livelihood support, and governance improvements. The brief emphasizes the need to empower vulnerable and marginalized groups, such as women and youth, in all interventions. Finally, the brief provides recommendations for stakeholders, including strengthening legal frameworks for land investments, promoting sustainable, community-based natural resource management, and improving access to climate information and early warning systems.
