Darfur sets just below Sudan oil has been found in large quantities in both Sudan and Darfur. Knowing that just follow the money trail to find who caused all the despair and grief.

In the Sudanese case, oil exported from Sudan would be paid for by the recipient directly into an escrow account rather than to the Khartoum government. The money would then be apportioned to pay for the Darfur food programme. The remainder of the revenue can then be made available to the government to purchase regulated items. The revenues from the oil are, at present, a state secret and kept in Khartoum where it is flaunted by a wealthy elite who will bitterly resist this proposal. However, even countries friendly to al Bashir want stability, and such pressure from the UN may enable them to at least stand aside and, furthermore, enable the Qatar peace negotiations to proceed without al Bashir's continued procrastination.

The UN Security Council must now be lobbied to take immediate measures to isolate Sudan and apply sanctions with air cover leading to a "food for oil" policy, as it has implemented elsewhere. This would mean that Khartoum would be banned from selling and directly collecting oil revenue. Instead, the oil revenue would be controlled by the UN, which then dedicates a portion of this money to cover a food programme for the refugees who are now being left to die by the Sudanese government. Such a fund would feed the millions of Sudanese displaced instead of the present spending of up to 60% of its oil income to buy weapons to suppress its regional populations.
