About Sudan

Sudan was the largest country in Africa and the Arab world until 2011, when South Sudan became an independent country. It sits at the crossroads of sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, with fertile lands, abundant livestock and natural resources. Since independence in 1956, Sudan has faced highly complex development challenges, but is key to stability of the region.

USAID is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to the people of Sudan, and supports democratic development in Sudan, building on established coordination between diplomacy and development efforts to address outstanding provisions of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended 22 years of north-south civil war.
