Perspectives on the Political Economy of South Sudan
The African Development Bank Group started its lending operations in Sudan in 1971, and has since, provided development support to various sectors, primarily agriculture and infrastructure. However, the Bank Group has not undertaken investment activities in the country since 1995 because of the country’s non-accrual status. Instead, it has been providing technical and emergency assistance and capacity-building support and undertaking studies since the imposition of sanctions, using ADF grants and, lately, resources from the Fragile States Facility.
