Khartoum is the capital and trading center of Sudan and is situated in Khartoum State, at the junction of the Blue and White Nile rivers; Omdurman is also a suburb of Khartoum, giving the urban area a population of over 3 million. The city lies near the rich, irrigated cotton-growing Gezira area to the south and much of its trade is based on Nile river traffic. An oil pipeline links the city with Port Sudan on the Red Sea. Industries include tanning, textiles, light engineering, food processing, glassware, and printing. Sudan’s climate ranges from tropical in the south to arid dry desert in the north. Khartoum is one of the hottest capitals in the world in summer, although the winter months are cooler and pleasant. A rainy season in many areas spans from April to October.

Living conditions in Khartoum are good. Khartoum is classified as a family duty station, with an adequate level of services, accommodation and facilities. One can rent a comfortable modern apartment or house with air conditioners that mitigate particularly for food and accommodation. It is a relatively safe environment, sometimes marked by small criminality or anti- western public demonstrations. MORSS (Minimum Operating Residential Security Standards) compliance is required although limited sports facilities due to the climate although one can get membership of gyms for indoor exercise andializing, there are clubs for swimming. International personnel should be prepared to use cash while in Sudan. ATM facilities are only available for local accounts. Credit cards cannot be used while in Sudan. Currency exchange and money transfer facilities, such as Western Union, are available in Khartoum.

Sudan is culturally Islamic and observes Sharia Law. Staff members are cautioned to behave in a manner appropriate to acceptable for women, head scarves do not need to be worn by expatriate women in the capital, men should wear long trousers.

Public displays of affection should be avoided. Public drunkenness is forbidden and possession of alcohol in Sudan is against the local laws. Visitors should always note that UN staff members are not permitted to bring alcohol into the country.

In Sudan, a country in facing multiple protracted crises, every programme intervention from humanitarian to recovery should ensure early recovery principles are integrated so that humanitarian work link better to the development agenda and structures. To find genuine solutions that end dependency on humanitarian aid and advance human development, particularly durable solutions to displacement situations, UNDP has an expanding project portfolio supporting recovery, return and reintegration of IDPs contributing to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), Integrated Strategic framework (ISF) and UNDP’s Country Programme Document (CPD).

In addition to UNDPs own Programme interventions, the early recovery approach plays a crucial role in laying foundations for transition from relief to development for the UN system as a whole. Tackling both humanitarian and development challenges caused by protracted displacements requires a coherent and effective approach to building resilience and making progress towards durable solutions of refugees, returnees, IDPs, and host communities. To end displacement conditions, advance human development and enhance resilience of communities requires coordinated efforts by humanitarian and development actors and local and national government.

In response to this policy priority and the evolving situation on the ground, the HCT decided to strengthen both cross-sectoral coordination of Early Recovery, primarily through the Inter-Sector Coordination Group, and to establish a standalone Sector covering critical gaps in return and reintegration, given the convergence of objectives around resilience and durable solutions. This does not replace the need for Early Recovery as an approach that all actors should embrace – capitalizing on humanitarian response to support resilience building, recovery and development objectives, and strengthening the HDP nexus. The Recovery, Returns and Reintegration (RRR) Sector is currently led by UNDP, and supported by IOM and CRS.

The Government Counterpart is the IDP and Return center within the National Mechanism. Finding durable solutions for the challenges in the return and integration areas requires supporting and encouraging an area based participatory approach to understand the situation and coordinate the appropriate responses.

The overall aim of the RRR Sector is to contribute to increased resilience of households and communities in face of protracted crises and to progress towards durable solutions for displaced populations by strengthening early recovery andmulti-sectoral approaches. The Sector will do so by developing strategic response plans, coordinating the response to returnees and spearheading initiatives and programs aimed at bridging the gap between humanitarian relief and development. To do this, the RRR Sector is working in collaboration and partnership with all stakeholders to support the process of recovery, return and reintegration through four sector objectives:

  1. A coherent, consistent coordination mechanism in place for resilience and recovery related interventions targeting return and reintegration of IDPs and refugees, implemented by UN agencies, Sectors, NGOs, and Government;
  2. The development of a standardized comprehensive database on return data & trends, needs and opportunities is supported. This should enable, inter alia, the analysis of development risks and vulnerabilities to help guide programme design of return projects submitted to the Humanitarian Response Plan with recovery focus through a multi-sectoral approach;
  3. Capacity of sector partners, including UNDP programme staff, developed and the integration of crosscutting issues such [1] as gender and environment to strengthen resource mobilization for resiliencrelated activities supported.
  4. The promotion of Durable Solutions for IDPs through the provision of technical support to policy development, and advocacy;

These objectives are opportunity-focused and ultimately result in a reduction of urgent and critical humanitarian needs by taking an integrated approach to build on positive gains from emergency interventions.

Conditons ofServce or nernatonalSpeecalst:

The contract lasts for the period indicated above with possibility of extensions subject to availability of funding, operational necessity and satisfactory performance. However, there is no expectation of renewal of the assignment.

A UN Volunteer receives a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which is composed of the Monthly Living

Allowance (MLA) and a Family Allowance (FA) for those with dependents (maximum three).

The Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) is paid at the end of each month to cover housing, utilities, transportation, communications and other basic needs. The VLA can be computed by applying the Post- Adjustment Multiplier (PAM) to the VLA base rate of US$ 1,602. The VLA base rate is a global rate across the world, while the PAM is duty station/country-specific and fluctuates on a monthly basis according to the cost of living. This method ensures that international UN Volunteers have comparable purchasing power at all duty stations irrespective of varying costs of living. The PAM is established by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) and is published at the beginning of every month on the ICSC website http://icsc.un.org.

For UN Volunteer entitlements, kindly refer to the link Calculator

In non-family duty stations that belong to hardship categories D or E, as classified by the ICSC, international UN Volunteers receive a Well-Being Differential (WBD) on a monthly basis.

Furthermore, UN Volunteers are provided a settling-in-grant (SIG) at the start of the assignment (if the volunteer did not reside in the duty station for at least 6 months prior to taking up the assignment) and in the event of a permanent reassignment to another duty station.
