Alongside the durable solutions analysis implemented in 2020-2021 under the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) Sudan and in collaboration with the PBF implementing partners and the Durable Solutions Working Group (DSWG) Sudan, JIPS has also been supporting UNHCR in replicating the approach across an additional nine localities in Darfur and other displacement-affected areas in Sudan, under the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF).
The study namely covers the localities of Kebkabiya and Kutum (North Darfur), Kass and the rural villages surrounding Kass (South Darfur), Al Geneina (West Darfur), Baw (Blue Nile), as well as Ar-Rashad and Talodi (South Kordofan). Target population groups include internally displaced persons, returnees (both IDP returnees and refugee returnees), non-displaced, and nomads. Data collection took place in September – October 2021, followed by a joint analysis process in November – December 2021.
The analysis offers a snapshot of the challenges and opportunities for durable solutions in the specified area faced by displaced households, providing an evidence-base for strategic planning and intervention. The insights derived from this analysis directly contribute to the development of area-based action plans, guiding decision-makers in formulating targeted strategies to address the identified challenges. A detailed data annex is available for in-depth exploration of the key results.
