Specific stakes and challenges
Although Sudan has been opening up more widely to International NGOs for the past two years, it is still governed by strict rules and INGOs’s access depends on Public Institutions (visa, authorization to work, to travel, to recruit national staff etc…). The HAC (Humanitarian Aid Commission) is an essential partner, the only entry point for INGOs to work in Sudan.
The recent coup of 2021 October 25th lead to a high level of uncertainty in terms of Governance as well as donor’s strategy (especially for long terms project). Military power remains contested by an important part of the population and regular demonstrations are organized, mainly in Khartoum.
Part of that, the security situation in Khartoum remains calm in areas not concerned by the demonstration. Internet / phone network can be cut during demonstration but alternative system of internet connection allow to keep a correct connection.
In Gedaref, the current specific situation at the border with Ethiopia needs to be carefully monitored. The Sudanese army has taken back its agricultural land from the area of al-Fashaga used by the Ethiopians (a disputed area for 20 years). On both sides, the militaries have strengthened their presence. Transportation to Gedaref is by the road, for a 7 hours journey.
In west Darfour, pic of intercommunal violence end of 2020 and end of 2021 had lead to massive displacement of population in Geneina and surrounding localities. The follow up of the security dynamic in this complex and volatile context is utmost important in terms of access, communication with local authorties (HAC) and partners. Transportation to Geneina, main city of West Darfour, is organized by UNHAS
