The lack of water is one of the reasons of the conflict in Darfur (Sudan). In this region, the rainy season takes just two or three months and, for the rest of the year, people have to survive with short resources. While a Western citizen uses 400 liters per day, a whole family in Darfur have to manage with less than 150.
According to a report dating back to 1999 and sponsored by the UN Development Program, fighting over limited resources as the scarcity of water, over the next 25 years, will possibly be the leading reason for major conflicts in Africa, not oil.
UNAMID faces this issue to implement its mandate. The mission provides water in times of emergency, assists in facilitating peace and development and promotes new ideas to improve the daily life of Darfuris.
