This is a short agreement which is part of a series of short agreements which take place in the approach to the 2020 Sudan peace agreement, the Juba agreement. This short agreement reaffirms commitments already made in this process in the signing of the Juba declaration on trust building measures in September 2019 and provides for further commitment to complete the agreements already made. This political declaration agreement provides specifically for committees and future negotiation focus areas, in order to support the implementation of the Juba declaration overall. The formation of committees to address the release of prisoners and facilitation of humanitarian access are provided for as well as arrangements for the current Government party to manage land disputes, with a focus on Northern dam lands. These agreements in essence establish a relationship between the new transitional government of Sudan and other peripheral armed groups who seek to ensure that their own causes within their process do not get lost within the implementation phase of new government.
