In an attempt to address the political crisis in South Sudan, H.E. President Salva Kiir called a National Dialogue on December 14, 2016. The President noted that the National Dialogue is both a forum and process through which the people of South Sudan can come together to redefine the basis of their unity as it relates to nationhood, and sense of belonging.

UNDP is providing support to enhance inclusivity, wider participation, transparency and credibility of the dialogue process. Support is provided to facilitate wider and effective stakeholder engagement and participation in the dialogue process, especially those who may potentially be excluded from the dialogue. As part of this support, UNDP seeks the expertise of an independent editor to document and edit reports and knowledge products emerging from various consultative processes to ensure and protect their integrity. It expected that the required expertise will help the dialogue process in ensuring that the voices, opinion and perspective shared during consultations are not left out of the documents that will shape the agenda and outcome of the National Dialogue process
