This study focuses on assessing the impact of the current internally displaced persons (IDPs) on natural forests in KASS locality in South Darfur State. The main aim is to gain an understanding of their link with the environmental problems, as well as to compare their livelihoods, activities, conditions, and work opportunities during conflict. Moreover, to identify their major problems and, to understand the causes of these problems and come out with recommendations. The objectives of the study are, to assess the impact of IDPs on the natural forests through the interaction of (IDPs) dealing with the natural resources and to establish some forests to re-compensate the removal ones. The primary data were collected using interviews, questionnaire and field measurement. Secondary data derived through relevant published books, reports, and internet website. The findings of the study reflect that, there are many IDPs, who are partially or completely depending on the forests as the main source of their energy, building constructions and livelihoods. Many people from camps are engaged in firewood collection, charcoal making and brick klin to earn income. The majority of the IDPs are illiterate, poorly educate and are rarely aware about removal of trees on environment and desertification.
