THEMATIC BRIEF - NOMADS - SHIFTING LIVELIHOODS AND MARGINALIZATION
21 December 2021
The inclusion of nomads in durable solutions and peacebuilding processes is crucial. The Juba Peace Agreement acknowledges that nomad communities are one of the groups most affected by the Darfur conflict.
Results from studies in Darfur conducted under the UN Peacebuilding Fund in 2020–2021 show that nomads remain marginalized, when it comes to basic service provision, as well as excluded from the customary land system that limits their rights to agricultural land.
Such exclusion impacts directly community cohesion prospects, resolution of conflicts and eventually lasting solutions.
