The context for the analysis is the Sudan-wide Comprehensive Peace Agreement, while the primary focus is the design and implementation of DDR in the South of the country. The study covers the period from 2005 until the end of 2007. Significant positive steps have been taken in 2008 which have strengthened the conceptual and operational aspects of DDR in Sudan.
