Our Joint Programmes

Sustained Peace for Development: Conflict Prevention and Peace-Building in Sudan
The South Kordofan area of Sudan is one of the most complex conflict systems in the country, with increasingly serious tensions building since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005 and the secession of South Sudan in 2011. The Joint Programme aimed to prevent conflict from relapsing in four bordering states of Sudan by bolstering peace building, the rule of law and socioeconomic recovery within -- and between -- vulnerable communities and local authorities in targeted areas and villages. 
Creating opportunities for Youth Employment in Sudan
Sudan's Comprehensive Peace Agreement, signed in 2005, provided an enabling environment for the return of more than four million displaced people. Yet poverty and unemployment remain high, particularly in the southern areas devastated by the 21-year civil war. The Joint Programme's goal was to improve job prospects for youth, particularly returnees and demobilized soldiers, through skills development, the creation of employment opportunities and ensuring that job creation is integrated in national development policies.


Employment challenges faced by Sudan youth

MDG-F-backed study says long-term commitment and adequate microfinance are crucial to young people's financial inclusion.


Brazil, India, South Africa fund to aid South Sudan

Sudan will get support for reconstruction after its 22-year civil war from a development fund set up by India, Brazil and South Africa. The move will primarily benefit South Sudan, which voted overwhelmingly in January to secede from the north.
