STORYLINE:

For peace to be sustainable, every member of the community needs to commit to their individual responsibility for ensuring social cohesion. UNMISS recently organized a three-day forum in Juba, bringing together recently elected leaders at the county level across Central Equatoria to sensitize them on the important role they play in ushering in a new era of durable peace and development for all citizens of this South Sudanese state.

It is an opportunity to provide them learning and understanding of their role in line with the Local Government Act, but also to help them deliver their mandate and support their community.”

The workshop was focused on building confidence and capacities among community leaders and encourage them to actively support ongoing efforts by all stakeholders to mitigate conflict and foster reconciliation

The interactive sessions included sensitization on laws protecting survivors of sexual violence as well as juvenile offenders, but most importantly, they highlighted the vital role played by participating traditional leaders in ensuring that the Revitalized Peace Agreement is fully implemented and citizens under their jurisdiction are protected against all harm.
