OVERVIEW

This Dashboard provides an overview of the implementation of the 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan in Sudan in the first quarter. Sudan is one of the world’s protracted humanitarian situations with needs mainly generated by the impact of conflict and related displacement. There are almost 2 million IDPs and according to UNHCR, Sudan hosts 1.2 million refugees, and recent clashes in parts of Jebel Marra have led to new displacement. Acute malnutrition in children under the age of five is above emergency thresholds in various areas across the country and 4.8 million people are food insecure. Despite operational challenges and funding constraints, some 87 humanitarian partners have assisted 2 million people.
