This Monitor is intended as an overview of key developments in Sudan over the last two months along with our analysis of why it matters to inform and engage public opinion and Sudan watchers.
The UN’s OCHA reported the destruction of 16,000 homes in South Darfur. The floods displaced many farming communities and destroyed their livelihoods, adding to the concerns about serious shortfalls in food production across Sudan in the coming months. By August 23, more than 156,000 were displaced by the floods, and scores more lost their lives. The US, UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia have promised aid and resistance committees have pledged to act in support of the victims.
