The Aid Strategy covers all forms of international financing to the Government from development partners, both at the central Government of South Sudan level and in the States. The objective of the Government of South Sudan’s Aid Strategy is to improve the effectiveness of development assistance and humanitarian aid to South Sudan in support of the Implementation of the South Sudan Development Plan, so that the people of South Sudan benefit fully from the aid which is provided to them.
International assistance, when managed properly will impart significant benefits to South Sudan, but poor management can lead to a culture of aid dependency. The Government of South Sudan intends to work with its development partners to ensure that development assistance strengthens
Government systems, increases accountability and supports economic growth. This is best achieved by moving towards a situation where development assistance is aligned to the the Government of South Sudan’s policy priorities and works through its budget and financial management systems.
The Government recognizes that it is its own budget and resources that will have the most significant outcome on poverty reduction and growth within South Sudan.
