Sudan conflict puts pressure on local governance

Monday, February 12, 2024


Government institutions located in the capital, Khartoum, where major fighting persists, have been severely disrupted. Some have tried to relocate and re-establish themselves in Port Sudan and other towns in eastern and northern Sudan, while state and local authorities seek to operate without much national support.

  • State, local and tribal authorities will try to ride out conflicting political pressures for allegiance.
  • The formal economy will contract further, even if levels of conflict stabilise.
