In addition to Maggie’s blog above, there is another important point about the MSF “Top Ten” list of humanitarian crises. MSF first compiled this list in 1998 in reaction to the underreported famine in southern Sudan. Sadly, ten years later, Sudan is still on the list, now primarily for the situation in Darfur. This underscores the point that most of the profound humanitarian tragedies on the MSF list are distinctly man-made crises, and the situation in Sudan will not substantially improve until the international community deals with the governance problems that lie at the heart of Sudan’s repeated troubles.
