Where We Work

Sudan

Two years after Sudan embarked on the path of political transition, humanitarian needs continue to grow across the country. These needs are primarily driven by poverty, conflict and climate change, and are exacerbated by decades-long underdevelopment.

It has been estimated that 13.5 million people in the country needed humanitarian assistance in 2021 mostly in the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) sector. COOPI, which is present in Sudan since 2004, was actively involved in responding to the biggest emergency mainly focusing on the sector of greatest need.

Nevertheless, COOPI continues being in front line supporting the most vulnerable groups (IDPs, returnees, refugees and host communities) residing in North Darfur, Kassala and Kharatoum States.

COOPI intervention is based on an integrated area-based approach that focuses on two main sectors: Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL) and WASH. In addition to this, as for the projects in the open areas of Khartoum, COOPI also intervened in the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Shelter/NFIs sectors.
