Abstract
This research sought to analyze food aid interventions by Sudanese Red
Crescent in North Darfur State during 2003-2007, to see how well they were carried
out, how well they were targeted and what impacts do they have on food security. The
main strengths of these interventions were alleviation of human hardship, reaching
the remotest affected areas, training of staff and volunteers, efficient utilization of
available resources and community participation. However, weaknesses were Lack of
standardized procedures for targeting beneficiaries, weak follow up and incomplete
assessment, as well as slow flow of information from Community Based Organizations.
The author proposed participatory post-disaster "lessons learned", enhancement of
information based - programs and improvement of disaster response activities to curb
food interventions in north Darfur.
