Why Have a National Dialogue?
- Because traditional peace treaties between generals and politicians haven’t worked. The National Dialogue process will help them finally work.
- Because the vast majority of South Sudan’s citizens live in dire poverty.
- Because up to 2 million have fled conflict and economic disaster, with 1 million alone living refugee camps in neighboring Uganda.
- Because 1.3 million of those who haven’t fled face imminent starvation.
- Because 1 out of every 10 children in South Sudan is an orphan.
- Because South Sudan can change — into a vibrant, prosperous, diverse, and peaceful country.
