Human Development & Inclusive Growth

UNDP believes in development that benefits the poor. Our programme supports our partners in South Sudan to plan, monitor, evaluate and implement poverty reduction initiatives that are inclusive and sustainable.

Our Goals

Emerging from decades of war and instability, South Sudan’s recovery has occurred in stages. Initially, there was a need for crucial, emergency assistance. Following this, the formation of government meant the need for institution building and strengthening of State structures. While this important work is ongoing, the next stage is coming into focus, as South Sudan moves from a recovery phase to a development agenda.more
