The partnership will make the government’s peace building institution and the international organization to work together in promoting peace and harmony between communities in the country’s volatile areas.

In the presence of the Vice-President Riek Machar on Wednesday, the chairperson of the Peace Commission, Chuol Rambang Luoth, signed on behalf of the government and the founder and chairperson of the ACCORD, Vasu Gounder, signed on behalf of his organization.

The ACCORD is a renowned South African-based civil society organization working throughout Africa in conflict management, analysis and prevention. It intervenes in conflicts through mediation, negotiation, training, research and conflict analysis.

Established in 1992, ACCORD’s primary aim is to influence political developments by bringing conflict resolution, dialogue and institutional development to the forefront as an alternative to armed violence and protracted conflict.

In addition, ACCORD offers a range of training courses in conflict management theory and practice, and in mediation and negotiation. The organization regularly provides customized in-house training for a range of clients in the business, government and civil-society sectors.

The organization has carried out similar peace building initiatives across the African continent.

In a statement after the signing ceremony, peace commission’s chairperson Chuol Rambang said the agreement will provide support to the government in carrying out the peace initiatives in the volatile states.

He said the organization will also train South Sudanese in peace building and sponsor inter-state conferences such as between Warrap, Unity and Lakes states, for instance.
