Sudan’s Transitional Government’s Post-Revolutionary Challenges AheadIn 2019, a large popular uprising led by Sudanese women and youth toppled the incumbent regime demanding freedom, peace and justice. The transitional government, which took office in September 2019, is committed to address the root causes of the protracted economic crisis and conflict to stabilize the economy and create fiscal space for sorely needed investments in infrastructure, education, health and economic development for all.
However, due to decades of economic sanctions and violent conflict, the humanitarian and economic situation is complex. Around 9 million Sudanese households receive assistance, 2.5 million people are internally displaced, and 1.1 million are refugees. All these people are in dire need for assistance.
In response to this, the ILO, UNHCR, UNICEF, the IFC and the WB, spearheaded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, came together leveraging their respective expertise under the PROSPECTS partnership. The partnership works towards delivering change within the refugee, internally displaced, returnees, and host community populations in East Darfur and West Kordofan across three pillars:
- Pillar 1: Quality Education and Training
Pillar 2: Employment and Livelihoods
Pillar 2: Protection and Inclusion
