UN and partners reach 1.7 million people in Sudan with humanitarian assistance in January-March 2020
United Nations agencies and humanitarian partners – international and national NGOs – reached 1.7 million people in Sudan with humanitarian assistance during the first quarter of 2020, according to the preliminary findings of the 2020 Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) quarterly monitoring.
During the first three months of the year, HRP partners reached 27 per cent of the 6.1 million people that they aim to assist in 2020. The Financial Tracking System (FTS) reports that the Sudan 2020 HRP funding is 21 per cent.
As a continuation of the trend highlighted in the 2019 HRP Periodic Monitoring Report, the overwhelming majority of people assisted – 95 per cent – is in Darfur and Kordofan regions and Blue Nile State. About 73 per cent of all people assisted were in Darfur.
Response in central and eastern Sudan continues to lag. During the 1st quarter of 2020, there were few people reached in central Sudan – about 30,400 people or 2 per cent of the total number of people assisted. In eastern Sudan, HRP partners reached 48,600 people or 3 per cent of the total assisted.
