The Famine Disaster: Its Causes & Consequences in Africa (The Sudan), An Inventory Study (in Arabic)

Auther : Mukhtar I. Agouba

Most African countries, south of the Sahara, suffer or going to suffer from famines. Famines in African countries are deeply rooted in the shortage of food. The causes of famines can be classified under two main categories: man-made and natural causes.

The Sudan as an African - Arab country suffers from natural causes and man-made causes of famines. The man-made causes are the reflection of the chronic political instability and long lasting civil war in the Southern Sudan.

The desertification of The Northern Sudan as a result of successive drought due to man-made and natural causes will intensify the rate of famine in the Sudan. Famines in the Sudan damage the national unity and moral base of the whole nation. Conflicting actions taken to eliminate hunger by the Sudanese Government and International Organisations create and perpetuate famines.

The inventory study of famine in the Sudan, being the first study of such issue, has some positive aspects, as well as some limitations. To deal with famine as a disaster, the researcher considers his work as an inventory of empirical findings, not as an exercise in theory construction.

The researcher has developed methodological steps and terminological conceptual framework to guide him throughout his writing process. He developed some hypothetical statements or propositions. These propositions were derived from several studies, and mass media, government and International Organisations reports.

This means that many findings of this inventory could be modified or reformulated by other researchers in the future. To deal more effectively with disaster research limitations in the Arab World, the establishment of disaster research centres and team work are highly recommended.
