On 12 November, Mr. Ahlam Nasir, on behalf of the women of Sudanese political and political groups (MANSAM), met with Mohammed al-Ta`ishi, a member of the Sovereignty Council, and argued that women should be involved in peace negotiations. Nasir presented concrete proposals for women`s participation in the negotiations and MANSAM`s priorities in the peace process.  According to Neville Melvin Gertze of Namibia, speaking at a UN Security Council meeting in October 2019, peace agreements that are the result of negotiations, including women, are 35% more likely to last at least 15 years than those that are the result of negotiations solely for men.  The key to achieving inclusive and lasting peace is to ensure public ownership and to find ways to involve civil society actors and marginalized communities, such as nomads, in dialogue, reconciliation and social peace initiatives. The negotiations were mainly an elitist process from top to bottom. Although the United Nations brought displaced persons, tribal leaders and women`s groups to Juba for a short period of time, civil society participation was limited. However, the Agreement provides that a wider range of stakeholders can be integrated into a global peace through reconciliation and transitional justice mechanisms, follow-up conferences and an inclusive national constitutional conference. The signatory parties must now strive to implement the provisions of these agreements as quickly as possible in order to achieve lasting peace in all regions of the country and to promote reconciliation among all the peoples of Sudan. Achieving a comprehensive peace also means attracting other armed movements, particularly those led by Abdel Aziz Al Hilu and Abdel Wahid Al Nur, both of which have large areas, troops and support (in both areas and Darfur respectively). Negotiations in Juba with Abdel Aziz stalled because of his demands for a secular state or, if not, the right to self-determination, but he agreed with Prime Minister Hamdok on the way forward.
France reaffirms its full support for the ongoing democratic transition in Sudan and stands ready to assist the Sudanese authorities in facilitating the successful implementation of peace agreements. He reiterated his appeal to movements that did not sign the 3 October agreements to join the peace process in Sudan and contribute to reconciliation efforts among all the peoples of Sudan. Al Jazeera`s Hiba Morgan, who reported in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital, said the document signed in Juba was referred to as the “final agreement,” but that the absence of the two key groups meant the agreement was incomplete.
