All eighteen (18) states in Sudan have been differently affected by the ongoing armed conflict in Sudan. South Kordofan State is an agricultural hub located in the southern part of Sudan. It borders West Kordofan, North Kordofan, and White Nile states and shares an international border with South Sudan. It is also located approximately 580 kilometers from Khartoum. South Kordofan is one of the Sudan's richest states with millions of cultivable acres of land, including more than four million acres of horticultural farms and it possesses the country's biggest gum Arabic stock and the remaining forests in Sudan which have been affected by the ongoing conflict. When the armed conflict broke out in Sudan, several factories in Khartoum that produced supplies such as water, fuel, and medical supplies were destroyed which also contributed to the general destabilization of South Kordofan’s economy. In this release, the African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies (ACJPS) has documented incidents of attacks and human rights violations against the residents of South Kordofan State.
