Development in South Sudan is the foundation for sustainable peace
In 2005 a peace agreement put a stop to the conflict between North and South Sudan. After that restoration and development was able to start in the deprived southern part of Sudan. This process is taking longer than expected. When no development occurs at all that could lead to reigniting the conflict. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has therefore made money available to quicken development. The approved project proposal which was created by ICCO and Kerk in Actie contributes to this.

Moreover, SNCTP is going to try to set up a centre for psychosocial support for victims of violence, with ICCO's financial aid.
