star this property answer text <p>DFID (with colleagues across HMG) continues to monitor closely developments in Sudan. We are at the early stages of the political transition, with no surety of outcome. However, recent negotiations between the Transitional Military Council and the civilian opposition indicate that progress towards a civilian-led administration is possible. DFID has resources within its current framework to support macro-economic reform, the process of political transition and the provision of ongoing support to the eight million that depend on humanitarian assistance. These will be the main priorities for UK support in the coming months. We will keep developments in Sudan under close review and will make any decisions on potential shifts to UK aid in Sudan on the basis of careful analysis of needs and dialogue with partners in country.</p> more like this
