       Situations related to this Country
    • Yemen Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan
    • Sudan - South Sudan

      As the protracted emergency enters its sixth year, the South Sudan situation remains the largest refugee situation on the African continent. There are over 2.2 million refugees in Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a further 1.8 million people displaced internally in South Sudan. The situation continues to be characterized as a children’s crisis with children constituting over 65 percent of the refugee population.

    • Sudan - Central African Republic Regional Response

      The dire crisis in the Central African Republic continues to trigger massive forced displacement, increasing pressure on resources and living conditions in host communities and countries. Intense militia activity and inter-community violence hampers humanitarian access and exposes civilians to serious protection risks. According to OCHA, CAR remains the country with the highest humanitarian needs per capita, with 50 per cent of the population having to rely on humanitarian assistance to survive, while 25 per cent is displaced either internally or in a neighbouring country.

    • Sudan - Eradication of Statelessness in the East and Horn of Africa, and the Great Lakes Region

      Highlighting statelessness in the 12 Member States of the ICGLR, and what is being done to eradicate it. Media coverage, testimonies of stateless persons, reports on the issue and all documents pertaining to the Brazzaville Declaration process can be consulted in English, French, Portuguese and Arabic.

    • Sudan - Regional Bureau for the East and Horn of Africa, and the Great Lakes Region

      In September 2019, with the aim of bringing decision making closer to the point of delivery, UNHCR opened its Regional Bureau for the East, Horn of Africa and Great Lakes Region (EHAGL). It is located in Nairobi, Kenya and covers 11 operations: Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Within the EHAGL region, two situations are managed by the Bureau: the South Sudan Regional Refugee Situation and the Burundi Regional Refugee Situation. The Bureau has accountability for strategic decision-making, regional prioritization, oversight of integrity issues, and quality assurance, and possesses the technical capacity to support country operations in a wide range of sectors such as education, child protection, economic inclusion and durable solutions.



    Sudan hosts one of the largest refugee populations in Africa. South Sudanese make up the majority. Many others fled violence and persecution in neighboring countries, including Eritrea, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia and Chad, but also the wars in Syria and Yemen pushed people to seek safety in Sudan. Most refugees live in out-of-camp settlements, host communities and urban areas, while others stay in camps, especially in East Sudan and White Nile State. Sudan continues to generously host and receive additional asylum-seekers.

    Violence has also driven hundreds of thousands of Sudanese men, women and children abroad. Many live as refugees in surrounding countries, for example in Chad and South Sudan.

    Violent conflicts coupled with impunity have also displaced many Sudanese internally, especially in Darfur and Kordofan. Internal displacement was also triggered by disasters such as flooding.
    Resolution of conflicts, including on access to arable land, are critically needed to end violence and subsequent displacement. Continuous international support will be needed to ensure conditions become conducive to return of refugees and internally displaced people.
