Sudan Preparedness Plan 2021

STRATEGIC SUMMARY

In the second year of the political transition in Sudan, humanitarian needs continue to grow across the country, driven by localized armed clashes, intercommunal violence, displacement, climatic shocks and hazards, disease outbreaks, disrupted the livelihoods of vulnerable households and aggravated food insecurity, malnutrition and protection risks. The situation is exacerbated by the deepening economic crisis, coupled with the socio-economic impacts of  the COVID-19 pandemic and political instability. On behalf of the HCT and based on the Emergency Response and Preparedness (ERP) approach, the Inter-sector coordination group has developed the Sudan  Preparedness Plan to ensure timely delivery of assistance to affected communities, particularly to those affected by floods. The plan targets approximately 540,000 people in 2021.

The humanitarian response will be undertaken within the framework of the 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan, with an emphasis on providing multi-sectoral life-saving assistance to crisis-affected people across the country.  The response will be guided by the HCT Emergency Response Framework (ERF) and Standard Operating Procedures to enable cohesive, principled and timely emergency response. The humanitarian community will work with the Government led Flood Taskforce to ensure response planning and activities are effectively coordinated. In addition, sector coordinators and focal points will work in collaboration with government counterparts in the relevant ministries at national and sub-national levels.
