LEADIN: Sudan is home to a number of historical sites, but it's struggling to attract tourists. Now, a partnership with Qatar is aiming to preserve the country's monuments - as well as boosting visitor numbers. STORYLINE: Sudan boasts a rich history and numerous important archaeological sites. In neighbouring Egypt, ancient monuments attract tourists from all over the world. But here, it's a different story. Tourist numbers are relatively low at the Sudan National Museum today. But not only are visitors in short supply, the country is also struggling to preserve historic artefacts. "Lately, our artefacts have been attacked, either by getting stolen, through the drilling that has been taking place or even through the people's search for gold. These are man-made factors which thr...

The Darfur region of Sudan has experienced, over the last half century, rapid population growth, periodic drought and a cycle of conflict that has displaced millions from their villages, many of whom now live in Internally Displaced Person camps near towns – putting pressure on the region's already strained natural environment. Since competition over resources has contributed to conflict in the first place, worsening the natural environment so many depend on is neither sustainable nor supportive of recovery and peace. In an effort to address this, UN Environment and partners, North Darfur State Government and Practical Action Sudan, show how effective and inclusive natural resource management can improve livelihoods and achieve peaceful relationships. The Wadi El Ku Catchment Management P...

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. This project has been funded by the European Commission.
UN Environment in Sudan and partners organize the “Derma Conference” to help facilitate dialogue over shared natural resources to promote equitable use and management. The people of Derma in the northernmost stretch of the Wadi El Ku project area, near the capital, El Fasher town, were displaced due to conflict. Displaced farmers abandoned their natural resources, losing their means of making a living. Village markets, where cereals and produce would normally be found, were deserted and trade suffered. This put a strain on pastoralist communities living as well. Initially, partners implementing the Wadi el Ku project could also not access the area due to heightened tension and insecurity in the area and as the status quo dragged on, both pastoralist and farmer livelihoods continued to suf...
It's most striking to hear our friend South Sudanese Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala talk with a mixture of awe and confidence about his country's status as the world's newest independent nation. He believes South Sudan can be a stable and peaceful country. He eloquently points to how much more certain that outcome will be if we stay with Sudan.
The private sector plays an increasing role in supporting ICRC activities around the world. Executives from six organisations spent a week in remote parts of South Sudan where they visited doctors who carry out war surgery and watched as thousands of residents gathered for food assistance. South Sudan is our biggest operation in Africa and the second largest worldwide. That requires extensive resources that come partly from corporate partners, who also want to see what the reality on the ground is.

This 'magical' video portrays South Sudan's goal to bring access to education back from years of war. Even before the current crisis, the education system in South Sudan was weak with more than one million children out of school. The conflict made all aspects of life worse. The world’s newest country now has the highest proportion of out-of-school children in the world. With the support of partners, UNICEF South Sudan's ‘Back to Learning’ initiative reached over 300,000 children in 2015 and plans to reach nearly 600,000 children this year. The initiative is part of The Global Partnership for Education which is working to improve school infrastructure. ________________________________________________________ Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m The official UNICEF YouTube chann...
