The State of Sudanese Children, 2011

The State of Sudanese Children, produced jointly by the Government of Sudan’s National Council on Child Welfare (NCCW) and UNICEF, shows Sudan’s progress in meeting these promises in each of its fifteen states. It reflects the very real improvement in most childhood indicators between 2006 and 2010, as well as the multitude of challenges facing children today, not least as a result of the conflict in Darfur and along the border with South Sudan. The future is further clouded by an economic downturn due to lost oil revenues resulting from separation of South Sudan, at the same time as drought and climate change are pushing families further into poverty while rendering basic resources, like food and water, scarce.
