Sudan: Humanitarian impact of multiple protracted crises

Sudan is affected by a combination of political and economic instability, conflict, climate change-related shocks including heavy flooding and severe drought, endemics, and an influx of refugees from neighbouring countries. These factors have contributed to heightened poverty, increased population displacement, and food insecurity (FAO 12/10/2020). Sudan is also hosting an additional 30,000 refugees fleeing the crisis in Ethiopia. This will likely require further capacity and resources from the Sudanese government and international organisations, to deliver assistance both to the newly arrived refugees and the people affected by the protracted crises in Sudan.
