Sudan is the largest state on the continent; its territory essentially corresponds to the great Nilotic depression between the Ethiopian plateau, the eastern highlands and the dividing ridges of the basins of Chad and Congo, and is characterized by the presence of three distinct environments: desert, tropical, equatorial. A very clear distinction between the North and the South of the country also exists from the cultural point of view: northern Sudan is linked to the environment of the Nile, permeated by the ancient Egyptian civilization and then penetrated by the Arab one; the profound cultural difference with southern Sudan which belongs to black Africa, more linked to tribalism, animist religiosity, led to the separation of the latter by referendum and the birth of the independent state of South Sudan. The name of the country derives from Bilād as-Sūdān, that is “Country of the blacks”, a term with which the Arabs once indicated the lands located to the S of the Sahara, inhabited precisely by populations of black skin. Object of the Anglo-Egyptian colonial expansionism, the country achieved independence in 1956, which was followed, however, by the outbreak of the civil war. In the 1980s, the intensive development of irrigated crops and the nationalization of resources caused political weakness and instability, accentuated by international isolation. The signs of recovery in the early 2000s highlighted new contradictions: alongside the democratization process, the country has seen the economic situation worsen and the civil war worsening, the most problematic issue of which is the situation in the Darfur region. Following the separation from South Sudan (2011), tensions arose with the latter for the control of some oil regions on the border between the two states, in particular that of Abyei (where UN peacekeepers have been present since 2011). Promoted by the African Union, diplomatic negotiations have eased the tension without however leading to a lasting solution. In December 2018, rising food prices sparked extensive anti-government protests, which escalated to a military coup in April 2019 that ousted current President ‘Umar Ḥasan al-Bashīr. since 1989. According to COUNTRYAAH, Sudan is a nation in Northern Africa, the capital city of which is Khartoum. The latest population of Sudan is 43,849,271.

CLIMATE
The climate in every part of the territory is markedly tropical, with two distinct seasons; the short coastal stretch is an exception, where the Red Sea introduces maritime characteristics, limited, however, to the small coastal selvedge and the mountainous slope that faces it. Here, in addition to the rainy season (July-August), corresponding to that of continental rains, relatively more abundant winter precipitations occur, except in Būr Sūdān (Port Sudan), where there is only 110 mm per year; the relative humidity is very high. The seasonal alternation, typical of tropical climates, is linked to the high winter pressures typical of the entire Saharan area, contrasted by the humid summer contributions of the equatorial air masses. Of course, the rainy season is gradually shorter as you proceed towards the N, where rainfall, beyond the 13th parallel, does not exceed 80 mm per year. In Khartoum, which is in the Sahelian belt, 160 mm fall annually: an exceptional area is that of the Jabal Marrah (up to 600 mm) due to the condensation caused by the altitude. Going down towards the S you gradually enter the subequatorial environment (at Wau 1100 mm), touching 1500 mm on the southern reliefs. Throughout the country there are very high temperatures, with minimums in the winter months (20-27 ºC in January passing from N to S) and maximums in the period between March and July preceding the rainy season (32 ºC and 29 ºC). The daily thermal excursions reach high values ​​especially in the Saharan area; At Wādī Halfā ‘ can also be recorded at 50 ºC, which corresponds to the Sudanese maximum values.
