Norwegian foreign policy, as well as civil society engagement, has a long-lasting engagement for Sudan, also after South Sudan becoming an independent state. Since the 2019 revolution, the efforts have intensified – both in terms of political and economic support. It is important that these efforts are recognized, and that engagement is upheld for further support – especially among politicians and political leaders, but also in the society at large.
