The UK regularly receives information on the economic and livelihood conditions of people in Sudan from multiple sources. This includes South Kordofan and Blue Nile states as well as other areas of high humanitarian need. These reports help us to assess damage or losses caused by natural or man-made events and are used to make credible determinations of the best use of available resources to address the basic needs of those affected, using UK taxpayer funds. The findings in the named report are in keeping with a range of other sources. Given the risks to humanitarian actors working in remote and conflict affected locations we are cautious not to draw attention to specific reports or organisations working in these locations.
