Our Stories

  • In the highly arid ecosystems in the northern part of the country lies River Nile state. Under the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) framework in the state, six villages that lay alongside the western bank of the River Atbara have been targeted by UNDP for increasing the resilience of the local communities to the effects of climate change in Sudan

  • Uncle Hamdoun Rahmatallah Hamdoun, has succeeded in bringing about peace and reconciliation in West Kordufan by halting the killing of thousands when a dispute erupted between two tribes at the locality of Meriam, West Kordofan.

  • “Since I began my beekeeping business in honey production, processing and wax refining with the Value Chain project, I am able to support my family. I sell my products at the local market, as well as further afield in Nyala, Khartoum and Omdurman,” says Abdul-Aziz, a 50-year old father of four, from Bindisi in Central Darfur. Along with his wife and children, Abdul-Aziz was displaced from his village when the war erupted in his area and forced to seek refuge in an IDP camp in Mukjar. He lost everything.

  • In Mazmoom community, located in Sennar State, the situation continues to be tense. The combination of nearly 3,800 returning Sudanese, including 1,800 former fighters, who are trying to establish new homes, farms and find pastures for their animal herds has made the situation for the Mazmoon difficult.

  • Having fled from conflict and instability, Eida Adam Abbaker finally returned home to Angime in West Darfur in 2012. Eida has since become one of the key community members working in Angime’s vegetable garden. In the past, her income stemmed mainly from firewood collection and charcoal production, work which was not only arduous and time consuming, but also unsustainable and harmful for the environment.

  • More than 5,300 community members in Damazine and Roseries localities in the Blue Nile state are benefitting from an entire package of basic social services and livelihoods opportunities provided in partnership between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Embassy of Japan.

  • Fatima is a local hibiscus producer in West Darfur. She runs her farm together with her eldest son and up until last year she had been growing hibiscus the way she had always done it. This was until she met Abubaker. Abubaker had been nominated by his village elders to participate in a UNDP youth volunteer programme through the University of El Fasher that would give him advanced skills and expertise in modern farming methods and business strategies.

    In the Blue Nile State, a demarcation and compensation process led to the re-opening of 109 kms of livestock corridor late last year. As a result, the reported police cases of conflict between farmers and pastoralists have declined sharply.
