Complex emergency in Sudan
Following the Government of Sudan?s decision on 4 March 2009 to order thirteen international humanitarian agencies and three national NGOs working in Darfur and other parts of the country to leave, concerns have mounted over possible humanitarian gaps and the availability of operational, management, and coordination capacities to deliver humanitarian assistance. The Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) was approached by the authorities to explore possibilities to fill some gaps, not only in Darfur state but also in the rest of the country. The Federation, working in support to the National Society, has been closely monitoring the situation and has had a number of meetings with key stakeholders within and outside the Movement to gain a better understanding of the humanitarian impact and consequences, and to explore an expanded role for the SRCS within its mandate and capacities.
