Climate-fragility risk fact sheet: Sudan

The Climate-fragility risk factsheet for Sudan provides insights into the risks and challenges faced by the country due to climate change and political instability. The majority of Sudanese rely on agriculture for their livelihoods, which makes them particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Poverty rates are higher in rural areas than in cities, and many Sudanese rely on international humanitarian aid due to the country’s economic situation and ongoing conflicts. To address climate-fragility risks in Sudan, there are two broad but interlinked levels of entry points: livelihood support and governance improvements. Efforts to build livelihood resilience should be leveraged to bring communities together and empower vulnerable groups such as women and youth.
