    Note to Editors:

    - On 27 March 2016, the Government of Sudan and the United Nations – including UNICEF, the UN Resident Coordinator and the UN African Union Hybrid Mission in Sudan the order should RC/HC, UNAMID, and UNICEF-- signed the Action Plan for Protection of Children from Violations in Armed Conflict with the support of the UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict. The National Council for Child Welfare played an important role in coordinating the Action Plan negotiations on the part of the Government.

    - Key milestones in implementation include the Government’s release of 21 children formerly associated with armed groups. In addition, the Government has enacted laws and policies to prevent the recruitment and use of children in its forces, and provided the UN with access for the purpose of monitoring and verification. Meanwhile, the Vice-President engaged with Walis and established state level committees for the implementation of the Action Plan (can you put Action Plan in capital letters).

    - The UN encourages the Government to address the remaining gaps in the implementation of the Action Plan. Key steps remaining include continued monitoring snd verification in all states; the establishment of clear procedures for identification and screening of any children in the Armed Forces; Standard Operationg Procedures for the handover of children to civilian child protection actors and the implementation of complaint procedures and awareness-raising activities.

    - The UN continues to work with the armed groups listed in the Secretary-General’s annual report on Children and Armed Conflict. Notably, the SPLM-North on 23 November 2016 signed an Action Plan to end and prevent the recruitment and use of children. JEM and SLA/Minni Minawi have agreed implementation plans to fulfil their commitments to prevent and end recruitment and use of children.
