This Multi-Year Humanitarian Strategy is a commitment by the international humanitarian community in Sudan, in line with the Government quarter century strategy and the Government third five-year plan, to deliver a more appropriate humanitarian response to both emergency and long-term needs across the country, in line with humanitarian principles. Planning beyond annual cycles will allow for better preparedness and a stronger evidence base for humanitarian activities. It will also improve collective accountability to affected people by investing in sustainable approaches that enable a gradual transition to durable solutions and development. Multi-year planning will also increase humanitarian actors’ accountability to all stakeholders, including the government, donors and implementing partners, by maximising the impact of available financial resources. This strategy is a commitment to the people of Sudan to shift from saving lives to reducing needs and vulnerabilities and creating the basis for early recovery and durable solutions.
