Resource-based conflict constitutes one of the most serious challenges facing many regions in Sudan. Traditionally, resource-based conflict has been represented by the age-old competition between farmers and pastoralists over water and land resources. Due to the protracted nature of conflicts over resources in Sudan, conflicts take on an ugly identity that is tearing the country apart.
