Sudan Regional Response Plan
As the armed conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and Rapid Support Forces (RSF), enters its fourth month, neighbourhoods across Khartoum, Darfur, Kordofan and Blue Nile states have transformed into battlefields, with civilians caught in the crossfire. According to the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH), at least 1,136 deaths have been recorded as of 14 July 2023. Despite international diplomatic efforts to have a sustained ceasefire between the warring parties, the situation does not show any indications of improving. Instead, the current political stalemate, and fighting igniting longstanding ethnic tensions in Darfur and South Kordofan, suggest that the conflict will continue beyond 2023, humanitarian needs will continue to rise and the consequences for displacement shall become ever more complex and protracted.
