As one of the world’s largest multilateral development agencies, present in over 170 countries and territories, UNDP is on the frontlines of anticipating, understanding and acting on today’s opportunities and risks.
Facing COVID-19, UNDP took a lead/integrator role in facilitating a multi-agency socio-economic impact assessment of the outbreak on Sudan’s fragile economy, alongside UNICEF, WFP and the African Development Bank. The analysis informs the Government of likely impacts (particularly for the vulnerable), solutions and responses – along with recommendations to rebuild better, using recovery as an opportunity to create a resilient and more equal Sudan.
UNDP commissioned this report on Sudan social media to gauge the public sentiment on the transition in Sudan. The year 2019 was a historic one for Sudan and significant for development partners, including UNDP, as the country went through a tumultuous youth and women led protest movement.
