Reflections from South Sudanese civil society
“Sudan is by all definitions still in a state of recovery. There is still a lot to learn and external assistance in building structures and systems in almost all aspects of life is very essential.”
“Southern Sudan is awash with NGOs, CBOs ans CSOs, but nothing is there to work on these fundemental issues (of accountability and transparency). It is all secretive and dominated by a few.”
