Background and Project Description:
In 2003, conflict erupted in the western part of Sudan - the Darfur region, resulting in years of high-intensity armed conflict between the Government of Sudan (GoS) with the support of various armed militias on one side, and Darfuri rebel groups on the other. In 2007, the United Nations- African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) was established as UN-AU hybrid peacekeeping mission with the mandate to protect civilians, facilitate the delivery of humanitarian assistance, mediate between the Government of Sudan and non-signatories of the peace agreement, and support the mediation of intercommunal conflict.
In June 2011, the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) was signed between the Government of Sudan and various Darfuri Armed groups, while others remained outside the agreement and continued fighting. To effectively implement the DDPD, the Darfur Development Strategy was developed as a pathway to recovery and long-term development in Darfur.
On 29 June 2017, the Security Council renewed the UNAMID mandate through resolution 2363 and decided to reduce its military strength by 40 percent and its police force by 35 percent, in line with the improvement of the overall security situation in the five Darfur states. While the overall security situation is improving, in January 2018, the Security Council (S/PRST/2018/4) reiterated the importance of adequate resourcing for the country team in conjunction with UNAMID drawdown and welcomed the Government’s consent to the opening of a temporary UNAMID base in Golo, Jebel Marra, Central Darfur, that would support humanitarian efforts and the protection of civilians. Golo locality has an estimated population of 164,000 according to the Humanitarian Assistance Commission, the GoS, with the mix of returnees and IDPs.
The Jebel Marra area in Central Darfur is composed of three localities; Golo, Rokoro and Nertiti. The predominant tribe in the area is Fur; other tribes are Masaleet, Zagawa, Tama, Zreigat, Nawaiba, Am Jalol, Falat, Ta’a lba, and Bargo.
