It demands urgent and concrete action by all parties to the agreement as well as by the international community,” said Colin Thomas-Jensen, Policy Advisor of ENOUGH. “Getting the parties to sign an agreement was an important first step, but now we must move to the next step of helping people return home in safety and security.”
