Background to the project:
CARE received funds from the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to implement the project “Enhancing resilience through improved food security, disaster risk reduction and peaceful co-existence in South and East Darfur states, Sudan”. The project’s duration is from 1st September 2021 to 31st August 2025. It is a new multi-sectoral project developed on lessons learned from completed and ongoing emergency relief and resilience and peacebuilding projects, covering food security, peacebuilding, women's empowerment, WASH, health, and livelihood projects in the Darfur region and other states.
The project is designed to address the specific needs, vulnerabilities, and capacities of women, youth, farmers, IDPs, host communities, and local institutions. There is a particular focus on marginalized members of communities, including but not limited to female heads of households, youth, and persons with disabilities.
