The United Nations country team in Sudan and the African Union–United Nations Mission in Darfur have taken another step toward improving their collaboration to support peace building and development in the region.
The two parties agreed at a joint summit held Dec. 11-12 in Sudan to combine their efforts to implement specific initiatives in the areas of human rights and justice, peace building, reconciliation, voluntary returns and institutional development.
Proposals on what innovative ideas to include in the collaborative projects were also drafted during the joint summit. These proposals will be developed into concept notes, which are expected to be presented at a UNCT-UNAMID meeting in February 2013.
