Measuring impact: the case of Darfur

The protracted humanitarian crisis in Darfur has required annual inter-agency humanitarian appeals since the conflict began in 2003. But despite the presence of peacekeepers, aid workers and development actors, there has been no significant improvement in the region’s development. Insecurity and instability have continued to generate humanitarian needs, and 2014 saw the highest level of new displacement for a decade. The operating environment for aid organizations remains extremely challenging. While the majority of people in need can be reached, some areas have not been accessed for several years.
