The two day training drew 30 participants from NGOs, SPLA, Civil Society Organizations, Health Facilities, Police, Prisons and Youth representatives.
The training was a multi-purpose capacity building initiative aimed at:-
- Introducing and creating awareness on the Peace Agreement and the implementation process to the Civil Society, and governmental organizations – highlighting their role in the Peace process as per the Peace agreement.
- Educating Civil Society and governmental organizations on the role of CTSAMM including the reporting
- Focus areas – included SGBV affiliated to Armed forces and the reporting process; Legal and Medical aspects of Rape; Humanitarian access; Humanitarian International Law in the context of the Peace agreement of South Sudan and existing gaps and challenges.
The training also offered an occasion to share information with the various actors of the South Sudanese population about the role of CTSAMM in monitoring, verification and reporting violations on the civilians in line with the August 2015 South Sudan Peace Agreement. It also aimed at creating more awareness on gender perspectives of the new Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians and Humanitarian Access signed on 21 December 2017.
CTSAMM would like to give special recognition to the dedication shown by the participants in attending the training as on the day the road conditions were particularly bad in Bor. Despite this all participants made it to the trining and were very grateful to CTSAMM for engaging them on these issues.
