2020 Sudan Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) launched

The Humanitarian needs overview is an analysis of the humanitarian situation to assist the UN agencies and partners in understanding the impact of a crisis on vulnerable people and to determine planning of response activities. It presents a comprehensive analysis of the overall situation and associated needs.

This 2020 Sudan Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) covers all 18 States of Sudan and the Abyei Area, identifying the humanitarian needs of internally displaced people (IDPs), refugees, returnees and vulnerable people amongst Sudanese residents. In the absence of a national multi-sectoral humanitarian needs assessment, several inter-sectoral and sectoral assessments undertaken between 2018 and 2019 contributed to the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the HNO. Some of the identified humanitarian needs for Sudan 2020 include:

  • 9.3 million people in Sudan—23 per cent of the population—will need humanitarian assistance

  • 6.1 million people are targeted for humanitarian assistance

  • 55 per cent of people in need of assistance are women

  • 58 per cent (5.3 million) of people in need of assistance are children (2.4 million boys and 2.9 million girls)

  • 15 per cent (1.4 million) of people in need of assistance have a disability
