Socio-economic and opportunity mapping Assessment report for Khartoum State
The sustainable disarmament and demobilization of combatants will depend on the availability of social and economic reintegration opportunities. For this reason, it is essential to support the demobilized to earn their livelihood and participate in the economic and social life of their communities; provide them with available information, counseling and referral on reintegration opportunities; and offer assistance to groups in need of special support; and increase the capacities of receiving communities to integrate the demobilized and other returnees.
The above elements should be based on detailed assessments of the areas of return and resettlement, and reintegration opportunities and services already available. Without this information, it will be impossible to design timely and effective Reintegration programs. Within this understanding the Northern Sudan DDRC (Central Sector Commission) and UNDP commissioned this Socio-Economic Study of Business Opportunities and Support Services for DDR Participants in Khartoum State.
