Third Session, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, January 20th – 22nd, 2014
This week, over 100 civil society activists and advocates from all over the world attended the Third Session of the Civil Society Forum on Sudan and South Sudan. The Forum was held at Bole Ambassador Hotel in Addis Ababa during the period 20 to 22 January 2014. The three-day forum covered a wide variety of issues plaguing Sudan, South Sudan and the surrounding region. Advocates in attendance were experts from Sudan, South Sudan, Africa and the rest of the world. The Forum culminated in rich intellectual discourse, recommendations for future advocacy work, and civil society resolutions as a pre-summit contribution to the 22nd Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU) Assembly of Heads of State and Government.
The Third Session of the Forum consisted of panel discussions, open sessions of questions and comments, and special presentations. While calling for an immediate end to the suffering of civilians and the expeditious signing of a ceasefire arrangement in South Sudan, the Forum also recommended that the IGAD Secretariat and the Chairperson of the AU Commission strengthen oversight and reduce ambiguity in the Final Draft Agreement on the Cessation of Hostilities Between the Government of the Republic of South Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army In Opposition.
