AP analysed the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (CTSAMVM).
CTSAMVM is the institution established by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development’s (IGAD) to support the implementation of the peace agreement reached in 2018 between the South-Sudanese government and the opposition. The CTSAMVM works in an impartial, professional and thorough manner to investigate complaints submitted by the Parties and others, and alleged breaches of the Agreement on the basis of credible information.
AP’s research team analysed approximately 180 documents plus the CTSAMVM Daily and Weekly Monitoring Reports for the literature review. Forty interviews and six focus groups were conducted from 21 October to 18 November 2020 with diversified stakeholders. AP’s report represents the CTSAMVM’s external analysis conducted so far.
The situation in South Sudan remains tense and one-third of the population was forcibly displaced. The internal report presented to CTSAMVM and to the EU contains the findings related to five criteria: effectiveness, relevance, efficiency, sustainability and coordination and provides recommendations for future actions.
The analysis provided by AP provided CTSAMVM and IGAD with some key information and lesson learned to properly plan CTSAMVM’s future.
