The document presents a comprehensive overview of the situation in Sudan, where an ongoing conflict has led to a substantial loss of life, primarily attributed to devastating bombings in Khartoum. The report covers developments in the time period of August-September 2023, but provides background information since the conflict outbreak.
This protracted conflict has triggered a significant wave of displacement, with Sudan currently housing a substantial number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and hosting a significant refugee population.
Humanitarian access in the region is notably challenged by bureaucratic obstacles, logistical constraints, and the volatile security environment, making it increasingly difficult to provide essential aid to affected areas. The crisis has also had a pronounced impact on food security, livelihoods, and access to crucial healthcare services, resulting in elevated malnutrition rates and heightened health risks. Protection concerns for vulnerable demographics remain a significant focus, and the overall situation is marked by pronounced disruptions in various facets of daily life, encompassing education, shelter, and essential sanitation services.
