Sudan faces a number of environmental concerns.1 These include desertification, climate change, increasing water shortages, decreasing rainfall, riverbank erosion, and deforestation.2 Air pollution and environmental degradation, along with a country-wide shortage of clean water, have been attributed to causing the country's high mortality rate.3 Deforestation, caused by the heavy reliance that the Sudanese place on their environment for exports and the agriculture sector (which 80% of Sudanese people are a part of), includes a change in land type from semi-desert to desert, and the degradation of existing desert environments, including wadis and oases, caused by human action.4 These and other environmental problems have been closely linked to the long conflicts in Sudan, as many of these factors have been caused by Sudan?s political conflicts and ...See More their aftermath.5 Show Less

Sudan is an extremely poor country that has had to deal with social conflict, civil war, and the July 2011 secession of South Sudan - the region of the country that had been responsible for about three-fourths of the former Sudan's total oil production. The oil sector had driven much of Sudan's GDP growth since it began exporting oil in 1999. For nearly a decade, the economy boomed on the back of increases in oil production, high oil prices, and significant inflows of foreign direct investment. Following South Sudan''s secession, Sudan has struggled to maintain economic stability, because oil earnings ...See More now provide a far lower share of the country''s need for hard currency and for budget revenues. Sudan is attempting to generate new sources of revenues, such as from gold mining, while carrying out an austerity program to reduce expenditures. Agricultural production continues to employ 80% of the work force. Sudan introduced a new currency, still called the Sudanese pound, following South Sudan''s secession, but the value of the currency has fallen since its introduction. Khartoum formally devalued the currency in June 2012, when it passed austerity measures that included gradually repealing fuel subsidies. Sudan also faces rising inflation, which reached 47% on an annual basis in November 2012. Ongoing conflicts in Southern Kordofan, Darfur, and the Blue Nile states, lack of basic infrastructure in large areas, and reliance by much of the population on subsistence agriculture ensure that much of the population will remain at or below the poverty line for years to come.
