Rapid Gender Analysis Policy Brief: Sudan Conflict Response

Conflicts have a differential gendered impact on communities, increasing the vulnerabilities of women and girls even if they are not directly part of the armed parties. Sudan’s complex crisis has been marked by protracted conflicts, drought, and an economic downturn. The clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have a disproportionate impact on women and girls who have limited access to services, especially sexual and reproductive health care, while facing increased protection risks, especially gender-based violence. The aim of the first Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) Brief is to explore existing information and data regarding gender, age, and disability to inform humanitarians of pre-existing vulnerabilities and capacities of crisis affected populations, and of the best suited programmatic approach to people with varying needs.
