    The Sudan, a vast Sahelian nation in northeastern Africa, heavily relies on its agriculture sector, supporting the livelihoods of 60–80 percent of its population. However, the recent armed conflict that began in mid-April 2023 has significantly impacted agricultural cultivation, exacerbating the existing food insecurity situation in the country. To address these challenges, a geospatial assessment was undertaken to estimate the extent of cultivated cropland during the summer cropping season (July to September 2023) in comparison to the previous 5-year average (2018 to 2022). This assessment aims to provide insights into the conflict's potential impact on agricultural cultivation and facilitate decision-making to manage both immediate and long-term food security challenges. This technical report outlines the methodology, data, and key findings for July, August and September 2023.

    Cropland is fundamental to food security. Cropland information is required to monitor food security indicators and provide information on access to water, cropping intensities and more. Cropland for eastern Bhutan was prepared by training a machine learning model and classifying satellite imageries (Planet, Sentinel–1) in GEE. Cropland data were prepared in context of GEF–8 projects. The main aim of the GEF–8 project is to transform rice fields to improve the region's food security.
