UNDP is proud to have worked alongside the new Government of South Sudan and the people of Eastern Equatoria, Lakes, Unity, Upper Nile and Warrap states in building the foundations for peaceful and secure communities. By providing payams and bomas with the tools and resources they need to prevent conflict, citizens can then begin to invest in their communities, cultivate their local economies, send their children to school and realize the benefits of peace.

There is a large body of knowledge about how to design systems of devolution from which we can draw comparative insights.
