TZH 65 - Sudan floods: Another shock felt amid existing crises

Sudan has been hit by devastating floods; the worst seen in decades. More than 600,000 households (2.9 million people) have been impacted across 17 of the country’s 18 states, with homes destroyed and farmland damaged just ahead of the harvest season. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is calling for urgent funding to support Sudan, a country already facing alarmingly high rates of hunger and food insecurity. Dominique Burgeon, the Director of FAO’s Emergency and Rehabilitation Division, has just returned from a mission to Sudan.

Producer & Presenter: Charlotta Lomas, FAO.
