With four cross-cutting themes run across the existing programmes:
Access to Markets
Markets as cross cutting issue will be mainstreamed in all programmes whenever that is possible with main objective is to have access to markets opened up for poor communities in Sudan and engage them with private sector.
Climate change work will focus on the adaptation mechanisms across all programmes. Practical Action Sudan's projects have an environmental element as we consider the effects to the environment in all of our work and seek interventions that benefit the environment as well as the communities. Our objective is to have built the resilience of communities in Blue Nile, North Darfur, Kassala and Gedarif to the effects of climate change by 2017.
Our objective is to have the organizational capacity of civil society partners in North Darfur, Blue Nile and Kassala developed to be operating independently and effectively representing and addressing the needs of their communities and that they have jointly established a vibrant and active nationally registered NGO by 2014.
Our objective is to ensure that all interventions supported by Practical Action are appropriate for men, women, boys and girls and effectively meet the needs of all community members without prejudice, discrimination or exclusion.
