The Great Green Wall Initiative in Sudan - Country Review
The National Office of the Great Green Wall (NOGGW) was created in 2016 by Council of Ministers Decree No 36 and was activated in July 2021 in accordance with Ministerial Decree No 6, declared by the Minister of Agriculture and Forests. These actions were line with the recommendations of multiple evaluations that were carried out in which it was deemed necessary to strengthen the capacities of the institutional and organizational structures of the Great Green Wall (GGW) initiative and GGW national structures of the participating countries.
The GGW intervention zones in Sudan are located in six states that are highly affected by drought and desertification and where the livelihoods of local communities need to be improved. The states are North Darfur, North Kordofan, Kassala, River Nile, Northern State and Khartoum State.
