From 15 April 2023, armed clashes erupted between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). As a result of the military clashes, DTM Sudan estimates that 4,551,795 Individuals (907,833 Households) have been recently internally displaced. The IDP caseload has been observed in 4,647 locations across all of Sudan’s 18 states. The highest proportions of IDPs have been observed in River Nile (12.66%), South Darfur (11.19%), East Darfur (11.01%), Aj Jazirah (8.07%), Northern (7.97%), and North Darfur (7.37%). Field teams report that the IDPs observed were originally displaced from eight states. The majority (3,120,044 IDPs, 68.55%) have been reportedly displaced from Khartoum state; followed by South Darfur (14.58%), North Darfur (7.97%), Central Darfur (3.99%), West Darfur (3.75%), South Kordofan (0.72%), North Kordofan (0.43%), and Aj Jazirah (0.01%). DTM Sudan also estimates that approximately 2.63% of the IDP caseload are non-Sudanese nationals. In addition to the internal displacement, the conflict in Sudan has caused the Mixed Cross-Border Movements of 1,237,103 individuals into neighbouring countries namely Egypt, Libya, Chad, Central African Republic, South Sudan and Ethiopia. 65% of arrivals tracked in those countries were Sudanese nationals and 35% estimated foreign nationals and returnees.
