The Darfur region of Sudan has experienced, over the last half century, rapid population growth, periodic drought and a cycle of conflict that has displaced millions from their villages, many of whom now live in Internally Displaced Person camps near towns – putting pressure on the region's already strained natural environment. Since competition over resources has contributed to conflict in the first place, worsening the natural environment so many depend on is neither sustainable nor supportive of recovery and peace.
In an effort to address this, UN Environment and partners, North Darfur State Government and Practical Action Sudan, show how effective and inclusive natural resource management can improve livelihoods and achieve peaceful relationships. The Wadi El Ku Catchment Management Project is funded by the European Union.
