Why is Sudan poor?

Unfortunately, the Sudan has a deeply entrenched poverty. Much of it is associated with the Sudan's farmers not having the means to implement modern farming methods. Farmers rely solely on rain fed crops, and are, therefore, at a great disadvantage during times of drought. In addition to the lack of modern methods, the are area is often overrun by strife and warfare that creates a displaced people who have no means of work or support, thus increasing poverty levels.
