We believe the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) can play an important role in resolving the conflict in Darfur, and re-committed our support for it at the Darfur Donors' conference in Qatar in April this year. However, implementation is significantly behind schedule and Darfuris have yet to see tangible improvements to their lives. We continue to press the Government of Sudan and the Darfur Regional Authority to implement the DDPD without delay, so that Darfuris see the change they so desperately need.
