Numbers Affected

According to the UN Humanitarian Coordination Unit (UNHCU), there are an estimated 4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Sudan, including 2 million in greater Khartoum and 1.2 million in the transitional zone and southern areas. According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Sudanese refugees in the region include 175,000 in Uganda, 80,000 in the Democratic Republic of Congo, 58,507 in Ethiopia, 32,000 in Kenya, 35,500 in the Central African Republic, and 20,000 refugees in Chad. Sudan also hosted refugees from other countries, including 147,302 Eritrean refugees registered in Sudan as of January, 2000. With the flare-up of fighting between Ethiopia and Eritrea in May, 2000, another group of Eritrean refugees estimated at up to 90,000 people fled to eastern Sudan; of this group, an estimated 21,000 have now returned to Eritrea.
