First African signatory to the Deed of Commitment protecting children in armed conflict On 30th June 2015, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-Sudan (SPLM (Sudan)) signed Geneva Call’s Deed of Commitment for the Protection of Children from the Effects of Armed Conflict, and became the first African armed non-State actor (ANSA) to commit to child protection through this tool. The signing ceremony took place in Geneva, following several meetings and work sessions between representatives of the ANSA and Geneva Call’s staff to discuss the concrete implementation of the obligations under this Deed. The SPLM (Sudan) is committed to prohibit the use of children in hostilities, ensure that children are not recruited into or forcibly associated with armed forces, release or disassociate children in safety and security, protect children from the effects of military operations, and do their best to provide children with the aid and care they need, in cooperation with specialized child protection agencies. The delegation of the SPLM (Sudan), composed of Mr Yasir Arman, Secretary General, Mr. Orwa Hamdan Zaid, Head of Political Training, Mr Mohamed Yassin, SPLM Representative to Italy, and Mrs. Nagwa Konda, from the Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Agency (SRRA), will also train their troops towards the respect of child protection norms, an endeavour in which they will be supported by Geneva Call. Yasir Arman, Secretary General of the SPLM stated that “The SPLM (Sudan) is a mature national liberation movement with a very clear objective and mission. We are honoured to be the first African armed non-State actor to sign with Geneva Call on child protection issue which is part of our mission and vision. The SPLM (Sudan) has already established, two years ago, a Commission on child, women and civilian protection, as well as a Special Court for Human Rights. We will be delighted to receive a United Nations’ Team into our area to ensure and reaffirm the child protection status and to verify our efforts.” Recruitment and use of children in the armed conflicts in Sudan have been widely reported and all armed actors active in Sudan, including the SPLM (Sudan) have been accused in the UN Secretary General report to the Security Council of using and recruiting children. “We are very pleased to have received this commitment today towards a better protection of children in conflict. After several months of preparation and discussions we trust that the SPLM (Sudan) will be able to respect its engagement and protect children in areas where the group is active. We call international organizations to bring the necessary support to the children in need in these regions and to contribute to a transparent and fair monitoring which is important in this process” said Elisabeth Decrey Warner, Executive President of Geneva Call. The SPLM (Sudan) is military active in the Sudanese provinces of South Kordofan and Blue Nile. These two areas have been highly affected by the armed conflict that erupted in 2011 between the SPLM (Sudan) and the Sudanese armed forces. Children are one of the most vulnerable groups in this conflict. SPLM-N had already signed the Deed of Commitment banning anti-personnel mines in August 2013 and is also in dialogue with Geneva Call on other humanitarian issues
