Our TICAD7 official side-event panel: Building Bridges for Peace in South Sudan, was a success with Vice President of South Sudan, H.E. James Wani Igga, joining the panel alongside the Hon. Onyoti Adigo Nyikwec, Minister of Agriculture and Food Security of South Sudan. Our Executive Director, Mr. Nihkil Seth, moderated.

The discussion examined the peace-building efforts in South Sudan and emphasized the importance of promoting the national capacity for post-conflict reconstruction in tandem with the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS). The panelists emphasized the significance to engage the youth and invest in the development of sustainable peace and prosperity in South Sudan.
