The Sudan consortium has met yearly since a 2005 north-south peace deal ended Africa's longest civil war. It is the stage for richer nations to show their support for maintaining peace in Sudan by pledging development funds.
The report to the consortium, put together by the Khartoum government in conjunction with south Sudan's administration, said Sudan needed $6.1 billion for development over the next three years -- not including $2 billion in humanitarian aid.
The meeting is taking place from Monday to Wednesday in Oslo.
