The UN System in Sudan launches the UN State Liaison Functions Data Mapping

The Mapping provides an easy way to visualize and filter SLF project data and it also tracks emerging hotspots, interlinkages, conflict triggers, and transhumance routes in the region

UNAMID and 10 UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes today launch the UN State Liaison Functions Data Mapping to support evidence-based decision making and data-driven planning and promote a greater understanding of the geographical coverage, range of activities and impact of State Liaison Functions projects jointly implemented by UNAMID and the UN Country Team.

The Mapping provides an easy way to visualize and filter SLF project data and it also tracks emerging hotspots, interlinkages, conflict triggers, and transhumance routes in the region.

The Mapping presently includes data from SLF Phase I (Jan. to June 2019) with other phases to be published in due course.

SLF projects contribute to addressing the prevention of relapse into conflict in Darfur over the long term by addressing immediate drivers of conflict, including competition over land, livestock, water and other scarce resources as well as IDP and refugee returns to areas with limited infrastructure, services and livelihood opportunities.

Ten UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes are involved in the SLF programme: FAO, IOM, UN-Habitat, UNDP, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN Women, WHO and WFP.
