This support is one of the main outcomes of the Darfur peace agreement , signed in Doha in 2011, and will kick-start the implementation of the immediate priorities outlined in the Darfur Development Strategy, launched at the international Donor Conference in April 2013. The three pillars of the Darfur Development Strategy are Reconstruction; Governance, Justice and Reconciliation; and Economic Recovery.

Today’s contribution from the State of Qatar covers half of the requirements for immediate needs identified in the Darfur Development Strategy. The total financing needs envisioned in the 6-year plan is USD 7.2 billion.
