Background

The protracted conflicts in South Kordofan and Blue Nile has resulted in destruction of social, human, physical, natural and economic capital in both states and has brought about serious damages in the neighbouring states. These states have presence of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Returnees and Refugees. IDPs exist due to the ongoing internal conflicts; the returnees have come after the secession of South Sudan; while the refugees have come from South Sudan after the current armed clashes that started in December 2013. Together these groups have further stretched the limited socio-economic capital such as community socio-economic infrastructure and limited livelihood opportunities in both the states and the fringe states. This situation has created a disproportionate effect on the lives and livelihoods of the unemployed youth, ex-combatants, IDPs, returnees, refugees, women, and communities in the affected areas in general.

There is a high concentration of female headed households who suffer from acute poverty since their husbands or the men in the house have either been killed in war or have migrated to urban areas in search of work.
