EU Support for a Social Protection System in Sudan

The project aims to support the new civilian-led government in Sudan to establish a robust social protection system, and also channel limited funds through existing and pilot social protection mechanisms. The project responds to the priorities of the recently formed, civilian-led Government of Sudan to a) enhance social protection systems and b) to test and establish means to mitigate the consequences of anticipated economic reforms in the country. With the programme, the EU seeks to support the Transition Government to build a long-term inclusive rights-based social protection system.

Main objectives

The specific objectives of this project are to:

- Deliver social assistance to vulnerable citizens;
- Contribute to the development of an effective and comprehensive government-owned social protection system.
