About Us

The Sudan Consortium is a coalition of more than 50 Africa-based and Africa-focused NGOs dedicated to working together to promote a just, peaceful and sustainable end to the ongoing and interrelated humanitarian and human rights crises in Sudan. The Consortium came together as the Darfur Consortium in September 2004 as concerned NGOs gathered on the fringes of the third extraordinary session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights in Pretoria, South Africa. The Consortium sought to reflect the unique perspective of African civil society and provides a forum for unified action, particularly through sustained engagement with the institutions of the African Union. In 2012, the Consortium was re-named the Sudan Consortium to reflect the need for a holistic response to the interrelated conflicts in Darfur, Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile and elsewhere.
