South Sudan became the world's newest state after its independence in 2011. More than four decades of civil war has left the country undeveloped and construction of economic and social infrastructure remains untouched. Adequate social services are not being provided, and the basic living environment is extremely poor. There are substantial needs for safe and stable water supply, basic education, vocational training and health and medical care. Support in these areas as well as eliminating regional disparities is of top priority. Furthermore, in order to achieve requisite level of food self-sufficiency, it is extremely important to develop the agricultural sector. Therefore, JICA's support to South Sudan is primarily focused on: 1) Assistance for Building New Nation, 2) Assistance for Basic Human Needs (BHNs) and 3) Assistance for Food Security.
