Sudan’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement, signed in January 2005, called for the creation of two multi-donor trust funds, one for the Government of National Unity and one for the Government of South Sudan, as part of the wealth-sharing protocol. The Sudan National Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF-N) and the Multi-donor Trust Fund for Southern Sudan (MDTF-SS) were officially established, following the Oslo donor conference in April 2005. Through 2010, paid donor contributions to both funds totaled $813 million.
