What, if anything, the country has done to protect education and/or implement any of the 8 commitments outlined in the Declaration.
In July 2017, the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) circulated a command order to all divisions prohibiting the military use of schools. The SAF began the process of evacuating and rehabilitating schools that had been in use by the National Intelligence Security Services. A school in South Kordofan was evacuated and rehabilitated in August 2016, having been occupied by the Sudanese National Intelligence Security Services (NISS) since March 2016. It was evacuated following advocacy by the UN and the Sudanese Ministry of Education. The UN verified that state security forces in Sudan vacated at least three schools in 2018. April 2018: A school in South Kordofan was evacuated and rehabilitated in August 2016, having been occupied by the Sudanese National Intelligence Security Services (NISS) since March 2016. Two schools were vacated as a result of a worshop on the Safe Schools Declaration covened by Save the Children in West Darfur in october 2021, with the presence of state actors and civil society. A national action plan to protect education from attack in Sudan was developed by state and non-state actors during a workshop organised on the Safe Schools Declaration (SSD) by national and international nongovernmental organizations in Khartoum on February 5th, 2023. The workshop was attended by national actors, including the Federal Minister of Education and representatives from various state, non-state entities, including the Sudan Armed Forces, Rapid Support Forces, Federal Police, General Intelligence Service, and signatories of the Juba Peace Agreement, and civil society actors, as well as international actors, including the Ambassadors of the European Union and Norway in Sudan.
During a workshop in West Darfur convened by Save the Children, 29 different state and non-state actors, national and international organizations, and civil society groups signed a commitment to implement the Safe Schools Declaration and protect learning and education. Two schools were vacated subsequently.
