Refugee and migrant youth in Sudan

Profiles, access to income, protection risks and assistance needs

Sudan is at the centre of mixed movements from East and the Horn of Africa towards North Africa and Europe, serving as a host, transit, and origin country for refugees and migrants. An estimated 122,000 out of more than 1.1 million refugees and asylum seekers are youth in Sudan, whereas the proportion of youth within the migrant population is unknown.

Based on 4Mi survey data, this snapshot sheds light on the profiles, income-generating activities, perceived protection risks and assistance needs of young refugees and migrants aged 18-24 in Sudan. This snapshot is produced as part of a research partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) focusing on children and youth on the move along the Central Mediterranean Route.
