This study responds to the need for
information and analysis on the urban sector in South Sudan,
to inform the Bank's policy dialogue with the
Government of the Republic of South Sudan (GoSS) on urban
and local government issues, and to inform the design of
future Bank assistance. The first phase of this analytical
exercise, which is the focus of this report, develops an
overview of the urban landscape. A second phase of this
analytical work is planned, that will build on the findings
emerging from this first phase. The report is structured as
follows: section two describes the evolution of the spatial
system in South Sudan and highlights key urbanization
patterns and trends; section three provides an overview of
the legal, institutional and financial composition of South
Sudan's urban areas; and section four outlines the key
policy issues and recommendations. The report also draws on
an in-depth case study of Juba, which is included as an
annex to the report.
