South Sudan - Country Engagement Note (English)

The overall investment lending of the World Bank Group to South Sudan over the last 10 years (during the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) period and since independence) has been substantial. The aims of this Country Engagement Note (CEN) are to respond to the current crisis and support stabilization, recovery, and peace where those opportunities arise. Because of the dramatic increase in food‐insecure populations and the enormous scale of displacement, the focus of the CEN will be on supporting marginalized populations and protecting and restoring livelihoods. The strategy comprises two objectives: (i) Support basic service provision for vulnerable populations; and (ii) Support to livelihoods, food security, and basic economic recovery. The CEN is for a period of twenty four months, with interventions focused on the short to medium term. In the absence of a credible political process, it is difficult to set out a positive prognosis for the country. Given emergency conditions, the CEN program will deploy rapidly, addressing vulnerability through either Additional Financing (AF) of existing operations or new projects in a ready state of preparation.
