Sudan

Available information on POPs contamination in Sudan
POPs contamination at numerous sites in Sudan could have resulted from obsolete stocks and unused reserves that were abandoned or mismanaged leading to contamination of soils and other natural resources.
However, since the management of the agriculture schemes have been quite centralized in the different schemes the tracking of the obsolete quantities has been in practice possible. DDT has been extensively used in agriculture till 1980 (NIP report, SUDAN, 2007).
Use of DDT for vector control purposes continued until in 1998, although illegal trafficking of DDT supplies into the country may have continued well beyond that time
National-wide inventories revealed the following quantities of obsolete pesticides stocked in 341 separate stores/storage sites in all states:

  • 234 tons of obsolete pesticides substances.
  • 528 tons of containers (some of them contain chemicals).
  • 8850 tons (16000 m3 ) of contaminated soil.
  • 400 tons (approximately) of seeds dressed by POP pesticides.
