We work with local communities in South Sudan to improve social cohesion and foster reconciliation. This is done through creating and sustaining structures to prevent and resolve local conflicts.
We work with national partners to address the drivers of conflict and build resilient communities by strengthening institutions that resolve disputes quickly and fairly, empowering people to claim their rights peacefully, increasing safety and security at community level, establishing transitional justice mechanisms and building a national system to stem further human rights violations.
On the ground in about 170 countries and territories, UNDP works to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress.
For over 30 years, UNDP has been supporting the South Sudanese in their fight against poverty. With the formation of the independent Republic of South Sudan in July 2011, UNDP established a Country Office and has been working all over the country to help build resillient and sustainable government institutions.

When we began our work five decades ago, one in three people worldwide lived in poverty. Now? Just one in eight. Let’s finish the job.
