  • Non-oil Revenue Administration Training Manual For State Governments
    Sep 26, 2016

    This manual is addressing an important existing need. South Sudan clearly needs an authoritative training manual on fiscal devolution and non-oil revenue administration at subnational levels, as well as other intellectual sources from which to draw for purposes of running an accountable and efficient non-oil revenue system. The author used the word “manual” as the title, indicating that further work is required to develop text books on specific specialized topics on taxation. UNDP Revenue Specialists have supported subnational governments’ non-oil revenue generating systems and human resource capacity building since 2011.

  • Discussion Paper: Conflict and Commodity Prices in South Sudan
    May 2, 2014

    An armed conflict erupted in South Sudan on 15 December. The conflict affected three states in particular – Upper Nile, Jonglei and Unity – and these states stand to lose not only the momentum in their economic and social development, but also the means for people to attain sustainable means of living. And this will likely create regional imbalances and inequalities in development outcomes, which are likely to fuel further conflict. To-date, over 100 days after the conflict, close to a million people are internally displaced and close to a quarter million crossed to neighboring countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
