Our Top Challenges

Getting the Peace Process Right

There are many challenges such as having armed groups and parallel negotiation tracks, regional and international interests that interfere with our interests.

De-listing Sudan from SST List

Removing Sudan from the State Sponsored Terrorist list has a lot of bearing on so many processes such as debt investment and also opening the country at large for investments.

Political Pressures

Our people have used led a courageous peaceful revolution and made major sacrifices, they now have very high expectations of very fast changes. The damage done over 30 years cannot be turned overnight, but we will move swiftly.

Economy and Debt

The challenges with subsidies, which consume 30 – 40% of the budget, mounting debt and funding short term needs.

Reforming State Institutions

Whether it is the security sector reform or public sector reform these are both challenges we have to deal with

Creating an Inclusive National Project

We have not succeed over the past 50 to 60 years in creating a national vision project for Sudan, we now have this opportunity to build an inclusive project with fair representation. This also includes the challenges with holding the constitution conference.
