"No matter where people live or who they are, all South Sudanese hope for peace and prosperity," he added. "We are witnessing a return to business as usual," where progress on the peace agreement itself is dragging on. On 17 December, the "No to The Oppression of Women" initiative called on the Sovereignty Council to include women, "particularly displaced and victims of war," in the Sudan peace process. Ihsan Fagiri, of the initiative, described women`s views on the peace process as going beyond formal signing of agreements at the national level, including "social peace, health and education" and the signing of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women by Sudan. [11] Achieving a comprehensive peace also involves attracting other armed movements, particularly those led by Abdel Aziz Al Hilu and Abdel Wahid Al Nur, both of which have significant areas, troops and support (in both areas and darfur). Negotiations in Juba with Abdel Aziz stalled because of his demands for a secular state or, if not, the right to self-determination, but he agreed with Prime Minister Hamdok on the way forward. The peace agreement between the Sudanese interim government and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SDF), a broad alliance of armed movements and other movements, and Minni Minawi`s Sudan Liberation Movement is not yet complete as it does not include two other major armed movements. Given the economic mismanagement of the Bashir regime, COVID-19 and the unprecedented floods, the search for resources to implement the peace agreement far exceeds the resources of the solvent Sudanese government. Implementation therefore requires sustained and generous support from its regional and international partners, including the country`s urgent removal from the list of government sponsors of terrorism in the United States, which prevents debt relief, access to granted loans and significant foreign investment.

Faced with strong pressure from donor budgets, it will be difficult to raise funds, but if they continue to support a nascent democracy in a strategically important but unstable region, Sudan`s allies will preserve their long-term interests. A final agreement on the East Line was reached on 21 February 2020. The terms of the agreement implied an increased representation of South Sudan in federal government structures; creating a locally funded reconstruction fund; and the creation of an internationally funded private bank in East Sudan to support political, educational, health and other structures. [23] The peace process faces various challenges and pitfalls that we can overcome through concerted efforts and joint action. The SRF includes rebel groups from the war-torn western Darfur region, as well as the Southern Blue Nile and South Kordofan states. Sudan`s interim government and several rebel groups have signed a historic peace agreement in Juba, the capital of South Sudan. Hundreds of thousands of people have died in various conflicts, and observers say the road ahead could be difficult. MR. MANSAM and the "No to The Oppression of Women" initiative have repeatedly called for women to be involved in the peace process. [10] [11] Shearer said the coronavirus outbreak had slowed the implementation of the peace agreement, "but the pandemic is not the only one to blame." Cheers erupted when representatives of the government and a coalition of armed groups called the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) signed the agreement on Saturday, a year after peace talks began, at a ceremony in Juba, the capital of neighboring South Sudan.
