Switzerland grants $2M for livelihoods interventions in Darfur

On Monday, the Government of Switzerland, acting through the Embassy of Switzerland in Khartoum and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), signed an agreement under which it will contribute $ 2 million to support livelihoods’ activities in Darfur.
With the grant, the Swiss government aims to support the scaling-up of UNDP’s livelihoods activities in Sudan’s western region for the next three years (2019-2022).
This comes as part of Switzerland’s engagement in providing livelihood support which has been ongoing for years, UNDP Sudan reported in a press release on Monday.
Switzerland’s contribution, together with UNDP’s own resources, will be directed to build on the success of UNDP’s flagship livelihoods programme in Darfur – rebranded as the Strengthening Livelihoods Security for Peace and Recovery in Darfur (L4P Initiative).
