On September 24, 2007, the Human Rights Council will consider an interim report by the Group of Experts (GOE) appointed on Darfur. The GOE compiled existing recommendations on Darfur in its June report, and has been working with the government of Sudan to foster their implementation. Human Rights Watch urges that the Council look at a number of concrete actions which could contribute to immediate changes on the ground in Darfur. Many of these steps are actions the government of Sudan has said it is already taking or is committed to take. The Human Rights Council should hold Sudan to those commitments, and should specifically call on Sudan, in the context of its work with the GOE, to take the following ten steps before the HRC’s December session.
