As many as 13,500 ex-fighters of armed movements that signed Abuja Agreement and Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) are to be reintegrated with a fund of 12 million U.S. dollars, granted by Qatar.

The program is the first to be implemented in North and West Darfur States and then in the other states of the region,” Gen. Salah Al-Tayeb, Sudan’s Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Commissioner, said in a statement.

Sudan established the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Commission (DDRC) according to the rules of the final security arrangements for Darfur peace agreements, signed in 2006, and the DDPD, signed between the government and the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) in July 2011.

The DDRC is tasked with disarming the former fighters, help them to socially and economically reintegrate and support them to actively engage in the peace process. Enditem
