The backing of the Janjaweed by the government of Omar al-Bashir against the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army and Justice and Equity Movement further changed the character of Darfur conflict by moving it entirely from struggle over limited resources to ethnic and political conflict. The aim of the paper is to analyse the effects of 2003 Darfur conflict on the wellbeing of the people of Darfur. Data for the paper was collected from textbooks, journals, and internet materials and analysed using narrative-analytic method. ABC Triangle and Hourglass were used in the understanding of the dynamics and impacts of Darfur conflict on the wellbeing of the people. It was found that the politicisation of the emergence of deteriorating economy in 2012 and 2013brought about intensified fighting between diverse Arab tribes over land as well as resources in the Central, North and South Darfur. Nearly 3,000,000 people were displaced within the first five months of 2013 only, the figure which outweighs the number recorded from 2010 to 2012. About 400,000 refugees have fled the region to neighbouring Chad alone. Also, over 300,000 people in the region have died as a result of starvation, violence, and diseases. From 2003 to 2005, more than 2,000 villages were destroyed. The means of livelihood of the people were equally destroyed as the sedentary farmers were disconnected from their means of livelihood, a situation that led to malnutrition and hunger. Unfortunately, conflict resolution and management techniques adopted in resolving the conflicts at all levels did not take care of the root causes of the conflict which is located at Contradictions manifested as turn/order, position and distribution of resources. It was recommended among other things, that the government of Sudan should urgently address the issue of marginalisation of non-Arabs in resource distribution in the country.
