The level of conflict in Darfur is relatively low. Following a referendum in 2016, the Sudanese government introduced a new political exemption that establishes five states as the basic administrative structure in Darfur. The Darfur Regional Authority was dissolved and, later, the six commissions subordinate to the Ministry of Federal Governance were re-established. The international community, which has traditionally focused its attention on providing humanitarian assistance to conflict-affected communities, is increasingly focusing on a more holistic approach to development, in line with commitments to grand bargaining and new ways of working and the link between humanitarian development and peace. However, the situation in Darfur remains fragile. It is necessary to consolidate peace, address the causes of conflict and achieve development. With this in mind, UNDP Sudan is looking for an institution to provide 8 different advisors under the Repayable Loan Agreement (RLA) in accordance with the 8 Terms of Reference (ToR) that are part of this appeal document for this mandate.
