South Sudan

The world’s newest country has considerable social, economic and political challenges. Many of South Sudan’s people face food insecurity, while few of them have access to safe water sources and sanitation.

SNV Netherlands Development Organisation focuses on assisting rural people shape their own livelihoods and reduce the potential for crisis. We work with communities, civil society, the private sector and government to create and sustain market-based solutions that will help grow South Sudan’s local economies.

Our current projects are building agricultural capacities and improving water, sanitation and hygiene conditions. In partnership with government authorities, businesses, civil society organisations and other development agencies, we are helping make a better future for all of South Sudan’s people.
