The mandate of the CTSAMVM is to monitor compliance by the signatory Parties and armed groups, either under their control or invited to support them, to the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) signed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in September, 2018. The CTSAMVM monitors the signatory Parties through its Monitoring and Verification Teams (MVTs) located in 9 of the most conflict affected areas of South Sudan. The MVTs patrol their areas of responsibility and gather information on potential violations of the agreement which they immediately report to the CTSAMVM Headquarters in Juba. This can include reports of military fighting, movement of forces, blockage of aid routes, forced recruitment of child soldiers and attacks on civilians, as well as the dissemination of hostile propaganda and other activities prohibited by the agreement. CTSAMVM Headquarters then compiles reports based on this information and submits them to the IGAD Council of Ministers and the Reconstituted Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (RJMEC) for further action.
