Overview of position
As part of the UK Government supporting Sudan’s efforts to move, where possible, to longer-term and more sustainable development, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO) has supported our client to implement the “Urban Water in Darfur” project. The project is aimed at increasing the availability and reliability of water sources in the four state capital towns of Darfur in Sudan. The project output to date enabled access to clean drinking water for an estimated 400,000 people, in two states, and the project also supports improved water supply management in two further states. The project is jointly implemented by UNICEF and our client.
