Dams fall within the framework of water projects for the purpose of conserving and developing the water resources of the country. However, our vision within the Sudanese Congress Party regards it as a process targeted towards human beings from start to finish. Therefore, our approach to dealing with the issue of dams is based on the following:
● The need for dam projects to be based on economic, technical and social studies that are considered useful within the
framework of an integrated plan for comprehensive development.
● The residents of the areas that are signposted for dam projects have the inherent right and are partners in all phases of the
● State Compensation to those affected by the construction of dams in the event of their approval for construction based on
what they have lost arising from the flooding to create the reservoir lake on their land, and providing them with
compensation that covers all the requirements for a decent life including; decent housing, a source of income, agricultural
land and integrated services.
● The State is committed to the establishment of dams whilst also preserving the historical and cultural monuments in the
region, so they are not compromised or devalued.
