A commission that reviews implementation of a peace agreement for Darfur wrapped up its latest meeting in Sudan's capital, Khartoum, this week.

Members of the Implementation Follow-up Commission (IFC) of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) discussed progress and challenges experienced since they last met in May 2016.

Darfur has been on the international agenda since 2003, following the eruption of fighting between Government forces and their allied militia and other rebel groups, which have now splintered.

The DDPD addresses root causes of the conflict and its consequences, including power sharing, wealth sharing, human rights, and justice and reconciliation.

It was finalized in Doha, Qatar, in 2011 and is the framework for the comprehensive peace process in Darfur.
