Wadi Partners: Food Security and Disaster Resilience through Sustainable Drylands Management in North Darfur, Sudan

United Nations Environment Programme (2016)

This case study documents the experience, results and lessons of the Eco-DRR demonstration project in Sudan, which examined the relevance of Eco-DRR in the context of drylands. The Eco-DRR project was implemented in one segment of the Wadi El Ku, one of the largest seasonal water bodies in North Darfur. The target area falls within the Kilimondo locality. Through collaboration between the Government of Sudan, UNEP, Practical Action and local actors and communities, the project applied a sustainable drylands management approach to achieve food security, community resilience to water hazards (droughts and floods) and mitigate local conflicts over natural resources.
