Saferworld is an independent international organisation working to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with people affected by conflict to improve their safety and sense of security, and conduct wider research and analysis. We use this evidence and learning to improve local, national and international policies and practices that can help build lasting peace. Our priority is people – we believe in a world where everyone can lead peaceful, fulfilling lives, free from fear and insecurity. We have programmes in around 20 countries and territories across Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe and have over 150 staff. We work with a wide range of partners including government agencies, international organisations, civil society organisations, youth and women groups; and communities.
Description of Saferworld and Sudan programme:
Saferworld, through partners, implements programmes in Khartoum, Darfur (North, Central and South Darfur), Eastern Sudan (Red Sea, Kassala and Gederif), South Kordofan, and Blue Nile States. The programmes supports communities and civil society organisations by building their understanding of gender and conflict sensitivity. We help provide space and opportunities for civil society to come together to engage in meaningful dialogues for peace and democracy. Our work also increases understanding within the regional and international policy community (such as the African Union) of the complex challenges faced by Sudanese citizens to help ensure their projects and approaches to Sudan encourage peace rather than exacerbate conflict.
Saferworld has been working on conflict and security issues related to Sudan since 2008. Our growing programme focuses on capacity-building for partners working for conflict transformation in Sudan, as well as analysis and advocacy.
