In the more than 50 years since its independence, Sudan has suffered from recurring civil wars causing extensive suffering and devastation. With the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005 hopes rose for peaceful co-existence and development.

In order to establish stability and progress for the peoples of the two countries, “visioning”, dialogue and advocacy are recommended as tools for a comprehensive peacebuilding.

Envisioning a more comprehensive, more stable peace in South Sudan and Sudan'.
