star this property answer text <p>Former President Mbeki has chaired the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) since its inception in 2009. Mandated to support implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), signed in 2005 in the wake of the Second Sudanese Civil War, the AUHIP supported the process that led to the independence of South Sudan and facilitated mediation efforts related to a number of Sudanese conflicts. The focus of the AUHIP will need to be considered in light of the removal of President Bashir by the Sudanese military on 11 April, but continued engagement by the African Union will be vital to supporting a transition to inclusive civilian rule in Sudan. While the AUHIP has been engaged constructively on some discreet areas of the broader regional conflict, the core South Sudan peace process has been led by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, which delivered the Revitalised Agreement on the Conflict in South Sudan, signed on 12 September 2018. ​</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Revitalised Agreement of the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) was signed on 12 September 2018. The Parties listed in R-ARCSS are: the Transitional Government of National Unity of the Republic of South Sudan; the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army-In Opposition; the South Sudan Opposition Alliance; former detainees; and a range of other smaller political parties. A diverse range of stakeholders from civil society and the region, including representatives from the church, business, and women's groups, also signed. The agreement can be found on the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission website. The most significant party to the conflict which did not sign R-ARCSS is the National Salvation Front (known as NAS) led by General Thomas Cirillo.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK welcomes the signing of a revitalised peace agreement for South Sudan on 12 September. This marks a significant achievement by the region, which played a key role in bringing the parties to the conflict together. However, to be convinced of the parties' commitment and of the deal's chance of success, we have been clear that we need to see a significant shift in behaviour by all sides. This includes an immediate and verifiable end to fighting, the release of political prisoners and unimpeded humanitarian access. So far, although we have seen an overall reduction in levels of violence, we remain deeply concerned by a continuing pattern of ceasefire violations and by the blocking of desperately needed humanitarian assistance.</p><p>Through our bilateral engagement, and as a member of the Troika, we have been clear that for meaningful progress to be made, those working against peace must face consequences. We continue to call on the region to work in step with the international community to hold spoilers to account, including through implementation of UN sanctions. We will continue to urge all parties to meet their commitments and ensure effective and accountable implementation of the agreement.</p>

We are working with Regional countries, who have a vital role to play in driving forward progress.</p><p>Along with our Troika (Norway and the USA) and EU partners, we are making clear our expectations for a clear and realistic implementation plan for the peace agreement; the inclusion of a wide range of stakeholders in ongoing discussions (including civil society, religious leaders and ethnic minorities); and robust and independent monitoring of the ceasefire.</p><p>Meaningful progress is possible only if the perpetrators of violence know they will be held to account.

We are urging the parties to engage meaningfully with talks as they continue in the region and welcome the vital role regional actors are playing in pursuit of peace.

star this property answer text <p>Following the first round of the High Level Revitalisation Forum (RVF), on 21 December all parties to the conflict in South Sudan agreed a Cessation of Hostilities. However, violations have since taken place in many areas, causing civilian as well as combatant casualties. The second round of the RVF is scheduled to commence in February, and the British Government is continuing to encourage all parties to commit to the process with a genuine commitment to peace.</p><p>The conflict is estimated to have led to more than 100,000 deaths since it began in December 2013, but the fragile security situation means that accurate estimates are difficult to produce, and the real number of civilian casualties is likely to be significantly higher. Over 4 million people, a third of the population, have fled their homes, including 2 million who have fled to neighbouring countries. In early 2018, 1.5 million people are expected to be on the brink of famine, more than twice as many as in January 2017.</p>
