Tags: General

The power-sharing agreement between Sudan's military and opposition groups signed in July, 2019, marked the end of nearly three decades of military dictatorship, and brought genuine hope of a lasting peace. As of January, 2020, negotiations continue between the transitional government and rebel groups, and the path towards permanent civilian rule is uncertain. Meanwhile, the country faces escalating humanitarian catastrophe, with 7·8 million people facing critical problems related to mental and physical wellbeing, including 1·6 million internally displaced people and 1·1 million refugees.
