Economic Development of Southern Sudan provides an overview of the Southern Sudanese economy, and the main causes for the lack of development in the territory. The book suggests strategies and policies for greatly reducing poverty and initiating sustainable development in the territory. Yongo-Bure outlines the significance of the resource base of Southern Sudan, as well as the development programs of the first peace period (1972D1983). The prominent sectors analyzed include agriculture, industry, transport, education, health, energy, power, and trade. The exploration and exploitation of petroleum is highlighted.
