SUDAN

'Rapid increases in population growth in Sudan lead to desertification, land degradation, loss of biodiversity and habitat. Many States in Sudan face challenges such as lack of drinking water, electricity, education and unsuitable environments for living. I work at a wildlife research centre in Sudan on my PhD in Dinder National Park, on the behaviour of one of our large antelopes, the Defassa waterbuck, and the effects of habitat alterations and resources.'
