Sudan: Sudanese authorities have started the penultimate stage of North- South boundary demarcation, ahead of the expected referendum on southern Sudan self-determination. The Technical Committee of Demarcation informed that it has two phases of the project. First is the collection and compilation of information, and the second was the description and drawing of boundary line on paper.
The demarcation process which would terminate before the referendum of January 2011 involves aerial and ground surveys, followed by land-marking to match the map on paper onto the ground.
Sudanese officials have called for support and cooperation from the people living near and along the border lines to enable the border delimitation teams to conclude the demarcating process efficiently and timely.
