Bringing Hope and Saving Lives: Joint Humanitarian Logistics Initiatives in Darfur

Zurab Elzarov


The conflict in Darfur have had a significant impact on civilian population and resulted in the deterioration of humanitarian situation in the region. Approximately 5.5 million people were food insecure in Sudan in early 2018, e.g., only 2 percent of IDPs in Darfur and 1 percent of the refugee population could afford the food they need. Some 1.6 million displaced people are registered as living in camps in Darfur. The humanitarian consequences of violence and livelihood loss are seen in the high levels of food insecurity. In this situation, food insecure people continue to largely depend on relief provided by international humanitarian agencies who also face numerous challenges in implementing their programmes. The article explores the current humanitarian situation in Darfur, analysis the main actors, evaluates successful pilot innovative projects and argues that improved coordination, cooperation and partnership between stakeholders with different mandates can significantly increase the positive impact of humanitarian and protection interventions on vulnerable people in Darfur.
