The flood season between May–September 2022 has been severe, affecting 299,000 people as at 20 September in 15 out of 18 states. Central Darfur, Gedaref, and White Nile states are the most impacted areas. People who were displaced because of intercommunal clashes in Darfur region and staying in IDP camps are one of the most affected groups, as floods have damaged the camps and resulted in fatalities and further needs for food and medicine. The floods destroyed over 17,600 houses and damaged more than 45,000 houses nationwide. Infrastructure damage was also reported for at least 500 healthcare facilities, 1,000 water sources, and 2,500 latrines.?
Humanitarian access to affected areas such as Azum, Mukjar, and Wadi Salih localities has been restricted because of flood water and pre-existing poor road conditions. Many villages in Al Jazirah, Kassala, and River Nile states have also become isolated and inaccessible because of the rising levels of water in roads, increasing the challenges humanitarian organisations and the Government face in delivering aid.?
Floods have affected more than 5,000 hectares of agricultural land. This will likely hamper food production, contributing to the already high food prices and deterioration of food security levels. About 20% of Sudan’s population (9,6 million people) are already food-insecure, facing Crisis or worse food insecurity levels (IPC Phase 3 or above) between April–May.?
