Economic recovery in Southern Sudan
INTERNATIONAL DIALOGUES SERIES: Economic recovery in Southern Sudan
Twenty years of civil war has resulted in enormous consequences for the
people of southern Sudan. Two million people have died and another 4
million have been displaced. Economic infrastructure has been destroyed or
damaged and commercial activity severely disrupted. During the transition
from war to peace, it is important that people are able to rebuild
livelihoods and return to communities where there is the economic
infrastructure to facilitate recovery.
