South Sudan naturally endowed for sustainable growth through agriculture
As South Sudan celebrates its independence on 9 July 2011, the world’s newest nation faces many challenges in building a strong and stable economy that supports the food security and livelihoods of its population.
FAO has been actively working in South Sudan and stands ready to further assist the world’s newest nation to develop a strong and sustainable agricultural sector. The UN agency has drawn up a USD 50 million Interim Assistance Plan (IAP) for the agricultural sector that will build capacity in ministerial and state agricultural extension offices, mediate to prevent conflict over water resources and develop the livestock sector.
