H.E. General Mohamed Jamal Eldin Ahmed, Director General of SNCCT stated “on behalf of the Government of Sudan, we very much appreciate Norway’s support to Sudan in prevention and countering of violent extremism (P/CVE). We and UNDP have been tackling the issue of violent extremism hand in hand. Within the framework of Government, we went ahead with a variety of activities such as development of national P/CVE strategy, sectoral research papers by experts, and formation of national committee for national strategy. The PAVE activities have been recognized and fully appreciated by Vice President and senior government officials. Now, with this support from Norway, we will be able to boost our planned activities and implementation.“
UNDP Country Director Dr. Selva Ramachandran further addressed the signing ceremony where he stated “I would like to thank the Norway’s contribution to the PAVE programme and their continuous support to UNDP in other projects. It has been a long journey since 2016 when PAVE has started with an intensive study jointly conducted with SNCCT on the trend of violent extremism in Sudan, which is an extremely sensitive subject matter. We approached NGOs, women, youth, to adopt a bottom up approach in the development of national P/CVE strategy.”
