Strategic Response Plan for Sudan 2014
Substantial humanitarian action will be required in Sudan in 2014. Overall, a total of 6.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance including life-saving interventions, protection from conflict and violence, strengthening household and community coping mechanisms and, where conditions permit, supporting longer-term solutions to the plight of IDPs and Refugees.
The UN and partners have agreed on the following strategic objectives for 2014:
Saving Lives: Reduction of morbidity and mortality rates to below emergency thresholds and improvement in well-being.
Protection: Conflict affected and displaced persons are more effectively protected from violence and exploitation.
Resilience: The most vulnerable households, groups and communities are better able to mitigate risk and withstand shocks and stresses.
Durable Solutions: Progress towards durable solutions is achieved for IDPs and affected communities in targeted localities.
As outlined in the individual sector response plans, the eleven sectors in Sudan have planned a set of complementary of activities under each of the strategic objectives. Key priority actions for 2014 will include:
- Responding promptly to new crises of displacement.
- Addressing the extremely high levels of malnutrition and tackling the underlying public health issues driving these.
- Enhancing the security of conflict affected populations.
- Facilitating better access to essential services in camps and host communities.
- Reducing food insecurity and increasing household economic autonomy.
- Re-estabishing humanitarian presence in currently inaccessible areas of South Kordofan, Blue Nile, and the Darfur region initially to achieve comprehensive vaccination coverage.
