South Sudan became independent from the Republic of Sudan (RoS) on 9th July 2011 following a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the two countries that ended decades of civil war. However, the new state is limited in capacity and resources to effectively deliver the welfare mandate impacting on the expected peace dividends following independence. Government institutions lack critical resources and are heavily reliant on non-governmental organisations (NGO) and other agencies. Conflict (both external & internal) remains the primary concern of the Republic of South Sudan (RoSS), which has seriously affected the economy and security of the population. Within RoSS there is persistent insecurity particularly along border states and in Jonglei where rebel groups are fighting government forces, Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA). Inter-ethnic conflict and disputes over resources especially grazing land are also fuelling instability. As part of the CPA nearly 10,000 ex SPLA combatants in the civil war are being reintegrated by the South Sudan DDR Commission and UNDP. The conflict/tension with RoS has reduced to a certain extent due to recent signing of the cooperation agreement on September 27, 2012 to resolve many of the outstanding issues from the CPA. This agreement included establishing a demilitarised zone along the border, resolved the issue of oil transit fees, ceasing support of rebel groups and freedom for citizens of both countries of work, movement, ownership and residency in each other’s country. However Abyei remains an outstanding issue and there have been protests from Northern Bahr el Ghazal over demilitarisation of the border which they say will impact on grazing land access and it being handed to RoS.
