The UK government’s objectives in Sudan are to: support the peaceful completion of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA); work towards an inclusive peace with justice in Darfur; support national and regional stability; back human rights; encourage the development of democratic and accountable government; and reduce poverty levels
