Rainfall, Conflict, and Food Insecurity Measurement in Post-Succession Sudan and South Sudan (July Months, 2013-2016)

  • ZIP Sudan_Climate-Conflict_Dataset.zip (461.8K)

    July precipitation anomalies from 2013–2016 for Sudan and South Sudan, which may have negatively affected agrarian populations during the lean season, are generated from NASA TRMM/TMPA 3P43 (Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission/Multi-Satellite Precipitation Analysis). These anomalies are available to analyze in relation local population estimates (WorldPop), reported conflict events and fatalities (Armed Conflict Locations and Events Data Project), food security classification (Integrated Phase Classification, Famine Early Warning Systems Network), and other sources for measuring crop access to water (Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station data).
