Protected Areas in Sudan
Under the 1973 Constitution, "natural wealth and resources", and therefore wildlife, are the property of the state.
Responsibility for environmental matters falls primarily under the authority of the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
Protected areas legislation is currently insufficiently known and enforcement is poor. Lack of a national land use policy has resulted in unguided exploitation of the forestry resource, and it has been recommended that a national conservation policy be developed.
The implementation of any major conservation initiatives is difficult at present due to the economic and political climate in the country.
At an international level, Sudan is party to the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (World Heritage Convention) which it ratified on 6 June 1974.
Sudan also participates in the Unesco Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme (and two biosphere reserves have been approved) and in the Ramsar Convention for Wetlands of International Importance.
