Improvement of indigenous coping strategies of famine stricken in Darfur states, Sudan

Project Summary
Famine is occurring in various parts of Africa. North of the equator the whole Sahel region is at risk but actual famine is taking place in Liberia, Sudan and Somalia (Samuel, 2007). There are three main causes: war, failure of rain, a malfunction of traditional agricultural plantings and the use of land in order to export crops instead of food for the country (Chris, 2018). The 1990-1991 famine, as in the period 1984 to 1985, is part of the gradual desertification process, which is a long-term problem of survival in the most affected areas of North Darfur and resulted in a virtually non-existent agricultural production in North Darfur and low in South Darfur, a considerable increase in the price of cereals on the market, the abandonment of "commercial" crops (groundnuts, sesame, etc.), the 30-40% loss of livestock in North Darfur, important water supply problems with the drying up of the hafir, high rates of malnutrition (Catherine,1993).
