We work closely with the United Nations Agencies to support safe access for humanitarian workers to vulnerable communities in Sudan and to monitor levels of violence against them. This involves regular discussions with the heads of these agencies in Sudan as well as discussions with specialist staff involved in the provision of their security. We regularly lobby the Government of Sudan to fulfil its obligations to provide a safe operating environment for humanitarian actors.
