Integrated enterprise and market systems assessment on the refugee and host community livelihoods in Sudan

This report details the findings of market assessments conducted on the groundnut and sesame value chains in East Darfur and West Kordofan.

This report seeks to build on the findings of previous integrated enterprise and market system assessments conducted by the ILO to offer a comprehensive overview of the target groups, locations and value chains.

Protracted conflict has severely limited the availability and stability of livelihood opportunities in East Darfur and West Kordofan regions of Sudan, while significant influxes of South Sudanese forcibly displaced people (FDP) in the last decade have put this already fragile economic situation under greater stress. As a result, FDPs in the two states are severely hindered in their ability to access basic services to support themselves and their families, leaving them heavily reliant on humanitarian actors.
