Discussions over a new partnership with the Sudanese government to bring humanitarian relief to civilians in the volatile Darfur region are in their final phase.

That's according to the deputy chief in charge of protection, for the UN and African Union joint Mission in Darfur, UNAMID.

Bintou Keita, UNAMID Deputy Joint Special Representative, has been advocating on behalf of the Mission for a new Temporary Operating Base for the UN in the former rebel stronghold of Golo, in Jebel Marra.

The area was retaken by government forces last year.

It's a forested area that's hard to access, and civilians there are in dire need of greater security and basic humanitarian assistance.

Adam Ahmed asked Ms Keita to describe what she'd found on the ground.
