The African Development Bank and South Sudan have a history of cooperation which started after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2005. The then territory of Southern Sudan benefitted under the one country two systems approach and later after independence under the Cooperation Agreement signed with the Bank. The country was officially accepted as member of the African Development Bank in May 2012 and in September 2013 it ratified its membership.
- The drop in oil revenues is having a significant negative impact on the South Sudan’s economy; the level of GDP is estimated to have fallen by more than 5% in 2015, and the government net oil-revenue forecast for the 2015/16 fiscal year was only 17% of the previous year.
- The parties to the South Sudan civil conflict signed a Peace Agreement in August, although significant progress in its implementation has been slow.
- The humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate, with over 2.2 million people displaced by the continuing civil conflict as of November 2015.
