Background

The Ten States of South Sudan are undergoing an unprecedented process of growth and development which has been accompanied by an accelerated pace of urbanization.  Increasingly, towns and cities are recognized as de facto engines of economic growth and opportunity with expanding business, trade and livelihoods with growing linkages to rural hinterlands. Against this background, the Government of Southern Sudan has sought to improve governance and quality of life indicators through the adoption of decentralization policies which seek to empower State Level and Local Governments to better manage the growth and development of urbanizing centers across the region through building the capacity of local leaders and their stakeholders.

Objectives

  • The specific objective is to build and strengthen a pool of trainers from Southern Sudan who would in turn train local government leaders and officials in urban management.
