Date: Wednesday May 22nd, 2024
Time: 11am
Speakers: Heyam Osman (Environmental activist)

Moderator: Florian Bonnefoi (Geographer – CEDEJ Cairo)

 

Abstract:

The armed conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in mid-April 2023 escalated across Sudan, resulting in widespread civilian deaths and displacement. This study investigates the intricate relationship between conflicts, internal migration, and natural resource management, focusing on the ongoing war in Sudan as a case study. Through a bidirectional causality lens, it analyzes the environmental impacts of the war, historical conflicts driven by natural resource overconsumption, and the socio-economic consequences of internal migration. Additionally, the research examines long-term strategic planning for natural resources during conflicts, assesses governmental and civil society roles in environmental governance, and identifies challenges on adaptive capabilities and conflict resolution. Furthermore, it clarifies post-migration environmental degradation factors and discusses associated health concerns, providing crucial insights for sustainable conflict resolution and resource management in Sudan.
