Juba assessment report  Town Planning and Administration

The signing of Sudan’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement has brought with it the prospects for Southern Sudanese leaders to provide for a just and durable peace for their citizens.  As the Government of SouthernSudan (GoSS) proceeds to extend civil authority throughout the New Sudan, the GoSS has made strategic town planning a priority project.  In order to assist the GoSS to respond in an effective and timely manner to pressing population return and reintegration issues, the GoSS and USAID through its implementing partner Creative Associates International, Inc jointly collaborated on a detailed municipal assessment of Juba to examine opportunities, constraints, and challenges in addressing rapid growth and change in Juba.

South Sudan Urban Development Strategy

Developing an urban structure is critical to the economic development of Southern Sudan.  Yet currently the basic building blocks needed for development – institutional structure,financial system, health and education infrastructure, human resources, active private sector and economic activities, and an operating inter‐urban transportation system – are either missing or still at an embryonic stage.  While some of these shortcomings can be dealt with in short‐term, others will require a longer period to attain a satisfactory level, especially those involving human resources and social development.

In 1976, the United Nations convened the Habitat I conference in Vancouver, Canada, when governments began to recognize the consequences of rapid urbanization, particularly in the developing world.  Twenty years after the Habitat I conference, commitments to addressing the consequences of rapid urbanization were reaffirmed at the Habitat II conference in 1996 in Istanbul, Turkey.  At the Habitat II conference, world leaders adopted the Habitat Agenda.  The Habitat Agenda read “Solidifying a Global, Multi-stakeholder Commitment to a Set of Principles and Plan of Action in Pursuit of Adequate Shelter for all and Sustainable Human Settlements Development in an Urbanizing World”.

Urban and rural post war integration in South Sudan  Case studies from Juba and Yei County

On July 9th 2011 South Sudan declared its independence.  A referendum was organized in January the same year where the vast majority voted for secession.  It was the end of the second civil war with the Sudan.  The two wars have had a major impact on the local population, and several millions have been displaced.  For many of them, the end of the second civil war is the beginning of a new chapter in life.  They start building up their lives in the new country.  The challenges of this process constitute the starting point of this thesis.  The main objective of this study is to compare the challenges of returnees’ integration in Juba and Yei county.  This kind of study is important due to the extent of return to post-war South Sudan and because of the impact integration has on those who return and on the new country.

Last January’s successful referendum has ushered in a period of great excitement in South Sudan.  On the eve of, and immediately following independence, many young people returned from camps for refugees and internally displaced people to the South.  Rather than going back to the rural, pastoral and agricultural communities of their parents, many have chosen to seek opportunities in regional towns, spurred on by a desire to contribute to the building of their new country.  More educated than their parents’ generation, these young people hope to turn their educational achievement into employment.

Urban environment and environmental health in South Sudan

Urban environment and environmental health issues are some of the most visible symptoms of the challenges facing Sudan.  Sprawling slums, litter and polluted waterways are prevalent in most urban centres, and health and development statistics quantify in some detail the massive impact of this situation on the quality of life of the Sudanese population.

Shelter, potable water, sanitation and waste management are cross-cutting issues, and deficiencies in any of these areas can be categorized as development, health or environmental problems.  This chapter focuses on the environmental aspects of these issues and the associated challenges in development and governance.

Urbanisation and Violence: A Post-Conflict State of Affairs

The majority of post-conflict countries experience a rapid escalation in urban violence and crime, political and non-political, after the conclusion of hostilities.  In South Sudan the predominant focus has been on violence and conflict between the South and the North, threats by actors in neighbouring countries such as the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), inter-ethnic violence, political militia activities, cattle-raiding, fighting over land, abductions and killings – the latter two frequently as a part of cattle-raiding or land disputes.  There is however, significantly less attention paid to increasing urban violence, its sources and identifying measures to address it.
