Conflict and food insecurity in Sudan: key risks and locally led responses

This paper identifies three critical risks that may significantly worsen food security outcomes over the next months: deteriorating agricultural livelihoods, contested subnational institutions, and national institutional confusion and competition. Approaches that centre the role of local actors are critical to overcoming these challenges. This includes learning from the Syria Civil Society Support Room (CSSR), to consider establishing a forum that would facilitate coordination between international NGOs and Sudan’s civic groups.
