Land Administration Challenges in the Post-Conflict South Sudan: The Experience of the USAID South Sudan Rural Land Governance Project (2011-2014)

South Sudan is a country coming from a conflict, having attained political independence as recently as July 2011. The protracted civil war that lasted for more than twenty years created malfunctioning land administration systems. Thus, decades of civil war destroyed many of South Sudan‟s essential institutions of governance, and not least the customary and statutory systems that allocated land rights and ensured that land holders could use their land to secure livelihoods.

One such intervention is USAID‟s Sudan Rural Land Governance (SRLG) project whose overarching goal is to establish and ensure that “a well-tested and proven set of systems and processes for transparent land administration are in place and ready for replication, continued adaptation, and scaling up.”  The paper is developed based on project materials generated from field experiences.
