Survey on legal and institutional reforms of the Sudan Voluntary and Humanitarian Works Act of 2006
A seven-page report on a survey conducted by an informal group called the “Sudanese Civil Society Movement” was released today. This short survey carried out between 22 – 29 July was to solicit views on the Legal and institutional reforms of the Sudan Voluntary and Humanitarian Works Act of 2006 and the extent to which people know about efforts of the government on this front.
The survey concluded that the humanitarian aid sector is one of the very important sectors that was not performing with the required level of efficiency during the period of the previous regime, and that the amendment of the legal and institutional framework governing the sector is an essential step in the process of reforming it. Furthermore, the survey highlighted the need for greater transparency and inclusivity by the government in the process of reforming the legal and institutional framework.
The Sudanese Civil Society Movement is reform and awareness movement, that accommodates all interested individuals, organizations and networks, who share the same concerns, visions and aspirations of an independent, democratic and effective civic space.
