Since then Sudan suffered from US economic boycott USA, which meant that a number of western and Middle Eastern countries follow suit and consequently, Sudan lost billions of dollars in a direct or indirect way.

Sudanese government exerted huge efforts to break this boycott via attracting the foreign funds and persuading donors to provide required assistance to many projects, which Sudan need in field of environment.

The Sudan has always been explaining the situation that resulted from sanctions and the impact on the people and on the environment.

These efforts led to partial lifting (55%) of the siege, particularly on environment related projects.
