IOM Sudan Annual Humanitarian Summary 2016

The Summary briefly captures the Organization’s emergency response to the continued acute and protracted humanitarian crises in Sudan. Crises exacerbated by conflict, natural disasters, scarcity of resources and poverty; all factors that lead to high levels of internal human mobility. Between January- December 2016, IOM continued to work with partner agencies, departments and organizations at all levels to build institutional capacity in emergency preparedness and response, and expand IOM’s geographic coverage in displacement tracking, and in the delivery of emergency health, water, sanitation and hygiene, and emergency shelter and non-food items.

Sudan experienced increased attention globally as a country of origin, transit and destination, along the main migratory routes from Africa to Europe. Sudan’s migration challenges center not only on managing irregular migratory flows, but also on how to achieve a progressive resolution to the protracted displacement situations within Sudan, and how to harness the benefits of migration to support Sudan’s development.
