Publication date

This report is a joint Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS) and World Bank initiative aimed at facilitating informed policy-making in public service management. As in other post-conflict situations, the Southern Sudanese state faces two sets of challenges--the provision of security and establishing legitimacy, and making the state function effectively and efficiently. These issues have a renewed significance in the face of the fiscal management challenges due to extreme commodity dependence on oil, coupled with the referendum due in 2011.
