In parts of Sudan, seasonal migration of livestock can trigger conflicts over land access and damage, and water and grazing. UNDP’s peacebuilding efforts help communities resolve disputes before they escalate.
UNDP and the State Ministry of Education and Guidance reopened South Darfur’s Nyala Sports Complex following a comprehensive, $150,000 upgrade.
Across Darfur, local youth volunteers lead hundreds of community development and peacebuilding projects. In one location, water access has been improved for 9,560 people.
In White Nile, support for rural development – and partnerships with the private sector – has created 24,000 jobs, and opportunities for communities and refugees to work together.
Efforts to support the more than 46,000 Ethiopian refugees, and nearby host communities, continues in Eastern Sudan. Significant activities are underway to provide longer-term, durable solutions for both groups, with separate initiatives to support flood resilience in the region.

A 63m-tall wind turbine has crossed Sudan’s Northern State, marking the first milestone towards the country’s first commercial-scale wind-energy plant. Construction will begin shortly and is estimated to take two to three weeks.
