Although rich in natural resources, Sudan is one of the least developed countries in the world. High poverty pervades the country where the lack of basic infrastructure and a reliance on subsistence agriculture help to keep much of the population living at or below the poverty line. Elevated levels of child malnutrition and youth unemployment are serious issues that must be addressed.

Decades of civil unrest in the country have cost the loss of approximately 1.5 million lives and have had a devastating effect on the welfare of the people. In total, an estimated six million Sudanese remain internally displaced from either the previous civil war or the ongoing crisis in Darfur.
