The Vice-Chair of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (PBC), H.E. Mr. Jose A. Blanco Conde [Dominican Republic], held a meeting on “Building Peace through Institutions and Governance in South Sudan” with the participation of the Government of South Sudan and senior officials from Intergovernmental Authority on Development, the World Bank and United Nations.

The meeting welcomed the engagement of the Government of South Sudan to brief, for the first time, the Commission on its peacebuilding challenges and the efforts to establish a peacebuilding architecture in South Sudan despite significant security, political, humanitarian and development challenges. In this regard, the Commission encouraged the Government to continue efforts towards implementing the R-ARCSS in the timely manner, in line with its recently adopted Roadmap, and ensuring the delivery of basic services to the people of South Sudan.  

The Peacebuilding Commission recommends that UNMISS and other United Nations relevant entities enhance integrated support to South Sudan’s peacebuilding and development priorities, in line with the African Union Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Commission expressed its commitment, within its mandate, to accompanying South Sudan in its nationally-led peacebuilding efforts at all levels including the upcoming visit of the Chair of the Commission to South Sudan.
