|Sudan Humanitarian Summary 2014||
In 2014 varied migratory phenomena occurred in Sudan. Approximately 457,000 persons were displaced in Darfur and 160,000 in South Kordofan (OCHA report). The conflict in South Sudan caused 119,709 South Sudanese to flee to Sudan (UNHCR). IOM’s Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration program aided Sudanese in their return from Europe (Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Netherlands), Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea), Africa (Niger, Djibouti), and neighboring countries such as Egypt and Libya, providing most migrants with pre-return counseling. Sudanese returnees fled Chad for North and West Darfur following clashes in the Tibesti gold mines, whilst others fled Libya for Khartoum and South Darfur. Sudanese returnees also traveled through Khartoum escaping emergencies in the Central Africa Republic and Syria.
