The present Project is designed within the context of the South Sudan Development Plan (SSDP) priorities and in support of the development of the Transport sector. It aims to enhance institutional setup and capacity, improve human resource capacity, streamline the transport infrastructure development, provide information for policy makers with regard to economic diversification and strengthen project management and implementation capacity. The project will provide a comprehensive transport master plan, prioritized interventions to improve the river transport, analytical knowledge to diversify the economy and prepare a pipeline road project. The outcome of the intervention will provide the basis for the sustainable development of the transport sector to stimulate economic growth and diversification, reduce poverty, and improve good governance and security. The project comprises: (i) human resource development; (ii) studies which include National Transport Master Plan (NTMP) study, river transport study, road study and economic diversification study; and (iii) strengthening project management and implementation capacity.
The sector goal is to contribute to socio-economic development, poverty reduction and enhance good governance and security through improved and sustainable transport system that provides strategic seaport access, enhances national and regional connectivity to link economic centers and access regional and international markets, and help communities to access socio-economic infrastructure.
The main beneficiaries of the project are: the transport sector, the population of South Sudan and many other users. These should benefit from improved infrastructure and transport services in South Sudan. The river transport study in particular will contribute to improve river transport (more than 1300 km) which will enhance connectivity along the White Nile River corridor and links the country with Sudan and Ethiopia. The improvement is expected to benefit about 3 million people, which is about 27% of the total population.
