What We Do

South Sudan became a new nation on 9 July, 2011, after decades of conflict. The new country faces some of the worst development indicators in the world and has very little infrastructure in place. Over the last five years, we have worked with key government institutions at all levels, providing technical assistance, mentoring and direct financial support. More

Our Goals

For UNDP in South Sudan, a driving focus is the need to assist the central and state governments in developing and building sound governance structures.More

Building and Sharing Solutions

UNDP is a solution-oriented, knowledge-based development organization, supporting countries to reach their own development objectives and internationally agreed goals, including the Millennium Development Goals.
