Secondment Fund Sudan 2016-17

01.01.2016 - 31.07.2019

Despite years of assistance, the humanitarian needs remain acute in several fragile regions of Sudan. This is due to continued armed conflict, lack of human security – especially that of children –, poor food security and livelihoods, and very rudimentary basic services. This consequently leads to ever increasing internal displacement and multiple emergencies. The deployment of Swiss experts (secondees) to multilateral organizations strengthens the effectiveness and the efficiency of the humanitarian response, and bolsters measures for early recovery and better resilience.

The humanitarian operation in Sudan is one of the largest in the world.

In Darfur, fighting in 2014 has led to the displacement of 430’000 persons. That is more than in any single year since the height of the conflict in 2004. This phase of the project will be implemented in the wider region of Jebel Mara in Central Darfur. The current phase of the project runs for 19 months and will further build the capacity of IDPs, Host Communities and Public Institutions in the fields of WASH and Basic Health Services.
