HIGHLIGHTS

KEY DEVELOPMENTS

  • Widespread, anti-government protests amid declining economic conditions and heightened food insecurity have continued across Sudan despite the Government of Sudan (GoS) declaration of a year-long national state of emergency and an associated ban on unauthorized gatherings.

  • October–November rains along Red Sea State’s coastal areas have resulted in a desert locust outbreak, potentially threatening food security and livelihoods in eastern and northern agricultural areas of the country. Locust control operations led by the GoS have treated approximately 184,000 acres of land to date.

  • An estimated 2,200 internally displaced persons (IDPs) arrived in Otash IDP camp in South Darfur State from December 13–January 7. Following a mid-January needs assessment in Otash, humanitarian actors provided food assistance and relief commodities to more than 1,200 IDPs at the site in early February.
