This is a year of transformation for Sudan, offering hope and optimism to millions of people. The transitional government, formed in September 2019 after months of protest, is pursuing a new social contract with the people, prioritizing peace and economic reform. However, these reforms will take time and the situation will likely worsen in the short term especially for the most vulnerable.
