The crisis of Greater Darfur region continued for the past eight years with so many postulations of the reasons behind the rebellions and uprisings there. Many voiced their concerns about human sufferings, but all agreed on that reasons focus on less or non-existent development. United Nations' Secretary General Ban declared that water scarcity is one of the major reasons for the conflict and anger. In the present paper we have different theory that water resources in Dafur are abundant, only awaiting tapping and present a description of South Darfur region. It is possible with the proper financing and honest efforts to deliver enough untapped water resources that suffice for all economic activities.
