project of Increased access to livelihood and employment opportunities to generate incomes and address food insecurity and malnutrition.

A conflict broke out in Khartoum between Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on 15th April 2023 and expanded to additional seven states out of eighteen in the whole country. This conflict caused residents of Khartoum state to flee to other states including Gedarif.

Food insecurity remains alarmingly high in Sudan with increased and protracted displacement, economic decline and inflation, and high food price hikes exacerbated by the clashes between SAF and RSF. The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis 2023 indicates significant increase in of highly food insecurity for people in Sudan. According to 2023 humanitarian need overview (HNO), the Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster has the highest number of people in need, one third of the Sudan’s population – 11.7 million, followed by Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Cluster -11 million, and the Health Cluster –10.1 million people in need. 

CDF will seek to improve the resilience of the most vulnerable communities, to adopt fewer negative coping strategies such as selling of productive assets. The project will focus its response on the people most vulnerable to food insecurity, addressing constraints in inadequate consumption of diversified nutritious food, and limited and unstable livelihoods and productive capacities.
