Poverty among Sudanese communities along the eastern borders: A case study from the Kassala and Gedarif States

The data for this paper was collected through a survey aimed at reviewing the socioeconomic conditions of the communities living along the Sudanese border between Eritrea and Ethiopia. The survey was conducted during July-August 2013 (Abdel Ati, ElTayeb Mohamadain, and Faiz Hamad ElNil 2014). Its main objectives include: estimating poverty indices among eastern Sudan border communities; measuring poverty levels and depth, and the decomposition of socioeconomic characteristics; establishing a baseline for further research and analysis of poverty and livelihoods in the area as one of the few field-based studies; and assisting decision-makers and other stakeholders at state and national levels by providing recommendations on appropriate policies and programming aimed at poverty reduction.
