USAID's Sudan Transition and Conflict Mitigation (STCM) program will reinforce post-conflict Sudan's capability to address the causes and consequences of political conflict, armed violence and resulting instability. At the direction of USAID, AECOM will work closely with governmental and non-governmental institutions and other groups committed to the successful implementation of Sudan's Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

This includes supporting local reconciliation, mitigating natural resource-based conflict and supporting key aspects of the CPA, such as civic education on popular consultation.
