Peacebuilding With Durable Solutions For Darfur’s Displaced: Thematic Briefs

A key priority necessary for lasting peace in Darfur is finding durable solutions for displaced populations and addressing the root causes of conflict. This is a central objective of the Juba Peace Agreement (JPA) signed in 2020. Results from the eight studies in Darfur conducted under the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) in 2020–2021 show that a majority of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) prefer to stay and integrate locally, and less than one-third prefer to return to their place of origin. The findings point to three key obstacles to local integration: the security situation, the insecure tenure of agricultural land and the food insecurity. In all three areas, IDPs face greater challenges and are more vulnerable than their non-displaced neighbours.
