North Darfur experience severe environmental degradation due to unsustainable farming, deforestation and overgrazing, diminishing the capacity of these drylands ecosystems to support local livelihoods Our Eco-DRR Strategy in Sudan applies Integrated Water Resource Management for achieving both food security and disaster risk reduction. It seeks to strengthen governance mechanisms, by involving different wadi users to gain shared responsibility for water and land management. Improving the availability and management of water and land resources in the community will in turn enhance food security and thus build resilience to water-related disasters.

Over the past few months, the UNDP Sudan team has been working hard analyzing the past; looking into the future; reconfirming development challenges; and mapping partner interventions. Against this backdrop and with UNDP's new global Strategic Plan 2014 -- 2017 in mind, we assessed the Blue Ocean Potential of our current portfolio, identified new entry points and agreed on strategic areas for interventions. While we are still working on the details, especially the formulation of theories of change for identified key areas, we are keen to share an overview with partners through this short animation.
Hundreds of thousands of South Sudanese have been forced to flee their homes due to intense fighting and food shortages. With its vast swamplands and uprooted population South Sudan is a country where water-related diseases such as cholera and malaria form a constant threat. Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH) is one of the European Commission’s Emergency Preparedness and Response partners in South Sudan. These partners are on standby to respond to new emergencies whenever and wherever they arise, as long as access to the populations in need can be safely obtained. With its water, sanitation and hygiene interventions, PAH provides vital assistance to vulnerable people affected by the conflict. Video by PAH
