Climate, peace and security fact sheet – Sudan

This Fact Sheet provides recommendations for addressing the adverse effects of climate change on the stability of Sudan. The United Nations Integrated Transitional Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) mandate recognises the need for appropriate risk assessment and risk management strategies. Sudan’s constitution and other key agreements contain core principles that can help guide the protection of the environment and the management of natural resources. The fact sheet recommends to take steps to address issues related to land tenure and the lack of clarity between customary and statutory systems of land ownership. Furthermore, according to the document the UN system should expand its regional and cross-border climate-related risk analyses and cooperation, with a special focus on transhumance-related conflicts. The incorporation of indigenous knowledge on natural resource management and conflict management practices can help address climate-related risks in Sudan. International partners, including the UN, can support integrated climate-sensitivity response mechanisms and durable solutions for displaced people in Sudan.
