State of the Environment in Sudan State of the Environment in Sudan UN Environment Sudan is facing a wide range of environmental, social and natural resource challenges such as deforestation, land degradation, loss of biodiversity and habitat, pollution of air, land, and water, conflicts over diminishing natural resources, food insecurity and poor waste and sanitation services in urban areas. All of these issues are aggravated by climate change and are hindering Sudan’s sustainable development. The State of the Environment and Outlook Report will help the Sudanese government to make better informed decisions regarding policy actions and interventions by supporting the understanding of the environmental challenges faced in the future. The adoption of an integrated approach aims to elucidate the link between environment, social and economic development. UN Environment is supporting the Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Physical Planning of Sudan in the process of developing the country’s first State of the Environment and Outlook Report. Sudan is facing a wide range of environmental, social and natural resource challenges such as deforestation, land degradation, loss of biodiversity and habitat, pollution of air, land, and water, conflicts over diminishing natural resources, food insecurity and poor waste and sanitation services in urban areas. All of these issues are aggravated by climate change and are hindering Sudan’s sustainable development. The State of the Environment and Outlook Report will help the Sudanese government to make better informed decisions regarding policy actions and interventions by supporting the understanding of the environmental challenges faced in the future. The adoption of an integrated approach aims to elucidate the link between environment, social and economic development. The report will work on answering the following questions: * What is happening to the environment and why? * What are the consequences to *Sudan’s environment and people? * What is being done and how effective is it? * Where is the country heading? * What actions could be taken for a more sustainable future? * How will Sudan meet its commitments to national aspirations, while sustaining its environment in the future? * Sudan’s State of the Environment and Outlook Report is part of a bigger initiative called ‘Adapt for Environment and Climate Resilience in Sudan’ (ADAPT) that aims to promote evidence based policy and decision-making and scale up successful environmental practices in development and humanitarian programming. This initiative is supported by UN Environment and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). * ADAPT wants to effect positive change by supporting policy and institutional reform in natural resources management and help Sudan formulate project proposals to mobilize resources. Recent Environmental Assessments in Sudan The last detailed environmental assessment was carried out by UN Environment in 2007 in the form of a Sudan Post-Conflict Environmental Assessment. While the publication of the PostConflict Environmental Assessment was very helpful, it is now out of date. Additionally, that assessment was undertaken prior to the secession of South Sudan from Sudan in July 2011. The Sudan State of the Environment Process The Department for International Development (DFID) funded UN Environment ADAPT project has made available funding for the Sudan State of the Environment Report. While additional funding may well be needed, this will enable the Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Physical Development (MENRPD), UN Environment and other key Ministries, organisations and institutions to move ahead with the State of the Environment Report. The initial phase of this work will be the establishment of a small advisory committee to develop the framework and structure of the Report and ensure that the end result is of maximum use to its audiences. Preparation of the State of Environment and Outlook Report will be led by UN Environment in support of MENRPD. UN Environment, MENRPD together with the SOE Advisory Committee will identify the team of experts with a qualified SOE Team Leader and SOE Team Members (both Sudanese and where needed, international) to carry out the SOE efficiently and cost effectively, focusing on environment and natural resources management issues in Sudan which are aligned to the key thematic areas of the Sudan Vision 2040, Intended Nationally Determined Contributions,, Climate Change Policy (CCP), etc. The report will be produced using Integrated Environmental Assessment and Reporting (IEAR) approach that will generate information relevant for the environmental decision-making processes in Sudan.
