UNDP South Sudan Update Volume 4 Issue 2

30 Jun 2012

In January, the Government of South Sudan shut down its crude oil production after they failed to reach an accord with Sudan over oil transit fees. The decision was not an easy one for a country emerging from civil war and conflict, while just beginning the process of nation building. Moreover, ninety-eight percent of South Sudan’s revenue is dependent on oil, which means that the country will face significant challenges in continuing along the development trajectory outlined in the South Sudan Development Plan.
