1 The Assistance from Japan to Sudan We will Go Ahead as a “Friend and Equal Partner” Joint-efforts by Japanese & Sudanese Japan’s assistance is not a “charity” and not one- way. We expect all Sudanese counterparts to work “together” with Japanese experts hand in hand to tackle various issues. Let us think together, work together, and finally, laugh together. Individual Human Development A key to success is empowerment of individuals. Each person’s initiative is the most essential resource which comes from genuine motivation towards the country’s development. Follow-ups for Sustainability 100% Transparency, Accountability and Compliance Good follow-ups lead to good results. All Japanese projects need to be followed up for at least 5 years to secure the sustainability of projects together with Sudanese counterparts. Japanese ODA is supported by the Japanese tax payers while it is implemented in the recipient countries. Therefore, Japan’s ODA requires 100% transparency, accountability and compliance of its projects to the people of Japan and Sudan. Japan’s Approach is… Japan has provided “Official Development Assistance (ODA)” to Sudan, which has amounted to over US$ 1.2 billion since 2005 through both bilateral and multilateral channels. It includes 56 General Grant Assistance Projects, 53 Grant Assistance for Grassroots and Human Security Projects (GGP), Technical Assistance, dispatch of more than 600 Japanese Experts and 23 Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers (JOCV) and acceptance of around 1,450 Sudanese trainees in Japan. In addition to the provision of the ODA, our partnership has been extended into the fields of culture, sports, education, trade and investment Japan regards Sudan as one of the most important countries for achieving the peace and stability in Africa and the world. Japan commits itself to make utmost efforts towards more prosperous and dynamic Sudan. Japan will carry out every single commitment towards “Win- Win relations between our two countries” without fail. Embassy of Japan in Sudan TEL: or JICA Sudan Office TEL: As of 26 Mar
