Republic of South Sudan : Issues in Urban Development

Phase 1 – An Overview of the Urban Landscape in South Sudan
Final Report, November 2011

27 avril 2023

This study responds to the need for information and analysis on the urban sector in South Sudan, to inform the Bank‘s policy dialogue with the Government of the Republic of South Sudan (GoSS) on urban and local government issues, and to inform the design of future Bank assistance.

Despite the growing demographic weight of urban areas in South Sudan and the importance of local government as a platform for service delivery, there is fragmented knowledge of the urban sector in South Sudan.

In this context, the Bank initiated an exercise to begin to document the key issues in urban and local government development and to identify critical challenges and opportunities presented by urbanization in South Sudan.

This work seeks to answer questions such as :
What are the urban demographics trends ?
What is the situation with regard to urban infrastructure and services ?
What are the legal and institutional arrangements for local government ?
How could local government be better supported to enhance service delivery and respond adequately to the challenges posed by urbanization ?
