The protracted displacement situation in Sudan is not only a highly destabilizing experience for the affected populations, it also poses a significant nationwide development challenge. Leaving IDPs in continued deprivation, without the prospect of a durable solution, is both a humanitarian concern as well as an obstacle to long-term peace, recovery and reconstruction.


To lay the foundation for durable solutions and to respond to the immediate needs as well as the underlying vulnerabilities of the estimated 2.7 million people in need, the Recovery, Return and Reintegration (RRR) Sector's partners will coordinate their response through an area-based multi-sectoral response strategy. This strategy will contribute to outcomes 2 and 3 of the Multi-Year Humanitarian strategy by addressing immediate needs of IDPs and returning refugees and to the five UNDAF outcomes by addressing their underlying vulnerabilities.


The strategy includes a comprehensive IDP profiling to provide evidence-based information for strategic joint planning. The profiling includes a consolidated thematic analysis of the different durable solutions criteria and analysis on IDPs’ perceptions and preferences in relation to the three durable solutions options of 1) return to place of origin, 2) local integration and 3) settlement elsewhere in the country. It also includes an analysis of the capacity of the surrounding environment to accommodate and support these solutions.
