Water and Sanitation

Understanding that the scarcity of water is one of the lead causes of conflict in Darfur, UNAMID has carried out a large number of projects aimed at helping rural and urban communities in the region gain access to this invaluable resource.

Recent efforts include helping to organize an international conference on water, bringing together more than 200 experts in water use and distribution  and leading development specialists and donors in Khartoum on 27 June 2011. This was the first major international effort to build an innovative and sustainable water service system for all communities in Darfur.
