Habitat Country Programme for South Sudan 2016-2020
The Government of South Sudan fully recognizes the importance of Sustainable Development Goal 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustaihable and is committed to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda in the country.
Urban development is a major challenge in South Sudan as a result of the prolonged conflict, a large number of people are displaced and lack shelter and provision of services; basic infrastructure is underdeveloped; policies, legal and institutional frameworks for land mediation, governance and administration are not fully in place; and livelihood and economic opportunities in urban areas are limited. This Habitat Country Programme Document (HCPD) recognizes these challenges and outlines interventions that aim at contributing to building peace, early recovery and laying the foundation to stimulate economic growth through sustainable urban development in post-conflict South Sudan.
