Background of the USAID WRAPP Project

Twenty years of civil war has resulted in enormous consequences for the people of Southern Sudan. Two million people have died and another 4 million have been displaced. Southern Sudan is one of the poorest areas in the world, with an estimated 90% of the population earning less than $1 per day. The war destroyed infrastructure, institutions, and physical capital. Economic growth was hampered and basic livelihoods were ruined. Economic infrastructure has been destroyed or damaged and commercial activity severely disrupted. The challenges are colossal as people of the region seek to simultaneously establish a new government, care for internally displaces persons (IDPs) and refugees, and build the economic infrastructure essential for prosperity and stability.

Through the State Department PRM agreement, Pact Sudan’s Water for Recovery and Peace Program (WRAPP) is supporting humanitarian relief in Jonglie and Upper Niles states.
