Sudan’s commitment to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2 – zero hunger – can turn out to be even more challenging than anyone had bargained for. Due to prolonged conflict, environmental deterioration and other disasters such as drought and floods, a substantial share of the population is at risk of food insecurity. In Kassala State in Eastern Sudan, one in three families struggle to put enough food on the table. Based on survey data from Kassala State and other data sources, this policy brief discusses the incidence of food insecurity, explores families’ survival strategies, and recommends measures that may combat food insecurity.
