Situational Analysis of Sudan’s Crisis – December 2023

This report, spanning October to November 2023, details sustained hostilities between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) across Sudan, particularly affecting Khartoum and Darfur. The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project documented 870 events during this period, contributing to a cumulative total surpassing 3,400 since the conflict's inception. RSF's territorial expansion, notably in Darfur, impedes humanitarian access, exacerbating challenges for civilians seeking refuge. Displacement numbers reach 5.3 million internally and 1.3 million externally, with 12 million children facing disrupted education. The conflict triggers an economic downturn, making Sudan a significant hunger hotspot. Despite providing lifesaving aid to 4.5 million people, funding remains critical, with only 39% of the humanitarian response plan secured as of December 7. The report underscores the complex and perilous nature of Sudan's humanitarian crisis, emphasizing the ongoing need for international support.
