Our Crisis Offer


UNDP has remained on the ground to support the people of Sudan during the current crisis, building on over 50 years of support to the country.

UNDP Sudan's new Crisis Offer aims to address emerging multi-sectoral recovery needs to pave a path through and beyond this current crisis.  

UNDP’s response will support the critical nexus of humanitarian assistance and emergency interventions – creating an enabling environment for structural stability and return to peace.  

Interventions prioritize local communities’ needs, supporting health provision, livelihoods recovery, critical community infrastructure rehabilitation and access to energy: 


Operational Continuity

Responding to the crisis with a high degree of operational flexibility, UNDP has quickly restructured its in-country presence while constantly evaluating the evolving security situation.

UNDP has maintained its presence in Sudan via field offices in less conflict-affected areas in currently accessible states. The continued presence enables timely distribution of emergency assistance, scoping needs of affected population in concentration points, as well as critical support to host communities.  

UNDPs field offices with operational capacity include presence in River Nile, White Nile State, Blue Nile State, Jazirah, Gedaref, Kassala and Red Sea States (with continuing operations in Abyei and Kauda) – where most of the displaced population sought safe haven. 



Community-led responses

UNDP recognizes the importance of enhancing the role and capacity of local actors in responding to crisis.  

UNDP prioritizes partnerships and collaboration with local stakeholders and structures that to ensure inclusive local ownership to increase the effectiveness, efficiency, accountability, and sustainability of interventions, ensuring the protection of vulnerable groups, managing expectations, and navigating a complex political and cultural environment.

In addition to working with a wide range of national civil society organizations, including women's groups, youth organisations and peace-building actors, UNDP’s implementation relies on its previously established grassrootslevel community structures, so-called community management committees (CMCs), present and operational in over 70 communities across 10 states currently accessible.

Programme Offer

UNDP Sudan’s Crisis Offer is structured around three pillars:  

  • Humanitarian Response
  • Crisis Response
  • Durable Solutions & Recovery

The three pillars are mutually reinforcing: While the humanitarian response activities constitute the minimum support package, security permitting, UNDP will scale up crisis response interventions and development solutions as early as possible guided by an adaptive and agile management approach.
