State building in South sudan   discourses, practices and actors of a negotiated project

State-building programs supported by the international donor community since the end of the 1990s in ‘post-conflict’ contexts have often been considered ineffective.  Analyzing the state-building enterprise in South Sudan in a historical perspective, this thesis shows how these programs, portrayed as technical and apolitical, intertwine with the longer term process of state formation with its cumulative and negotiated character.  This negotiation occurs in an arena created by the encounter between international programs and local actors.

The Rapid Water Sector Needs Assessment   South Sudan

The Republic of South Sudan became a country on July 9, 2011. The present population of landlocked South Sudan (map ES.1) is estimated to be about 8.3 million and largely rural (83 percent). Only about 27 percent of the people have access to improved water supply, and only 15 percent have access to improved sanitation. Subsistence rain-fed agriculture and the raising of livestock, mainly cattle, are the principal livelihood systems for more than 95 percent of the population. The poverty rate is about 51 percent (GOSS 2011b); poverty and vulnerability are widespread. The livelihood systems are heavily dependent on timely and ample rainfall and access to water in the dry season. Rainfall is limited to a single season in most areas. Its magnitude varies over a wide range across the country (map ES.2) from south to north from approximately 1,800 to 500 mm (millimeters) and varies considerably from year to year.

Understanding Socioeconomic Challenges Facing Smallholder Farmers in Gondokoro, South Sudan

Smallholder farmers in Gondokoro of Central Equatoria state (now Jubek state) have failed to increase food production due to socio-economic challenges.  This study was designed to identify critical factors that hinder smallholder’s ability to become food sufficient and the means they used to cope with these challenges.  A sample of 60 smallholder farmers were purposively (convenient) selected to participate in the study.  In addition, 8 focus group discussions/interviews were conducted.  Semi-structured questions were used to obtain data from the participants.  The socio-economic constraints the study revealed include: crop diseases, lack of tools, seeds supply, land constraints, household labour shortage, marketing challenges affecting women, credits, infrastructure problems (poor roads), extension services, challenges associated with livestock and fisheries, absence of smallholder’s association, community obligations and lack of proper medical facility.
