Join HPG as we convene a panel of Sudanese and international humanitarian leaders to shine a light on the ongoing armed conflict in Sudan and the international humanitarian response to it.

Three months since this conflict began, hundreds have died and more than a million are displaced. The fighting has ripped open the ethnic divisions in Darfur, with devastating consequences for civilians. Against impossible odds and putting their own lives on the line, Sudanese organisations have been the lifeblood of the response. International assistance has struggled to scale up in the face of delays, obstruction and aid diversion. Despite the severity of Sudan’s crisis, international engagement has failed to ignite.

This event will tackle big questions: how can we better facilitate the efforts of Sudanese organisations? What more is needed to scale up the international response? And how can we keep the spotlight on Sudan’s unravelling situation?
