South Sudan: The Cost of War

The conflict in South Sudan since December 2013 has devastated the lives of the majority of South Sudan’s people. It has placed nearly a third of the population at risk of famine and almost 2 million South Sudanese have been displaced. This report looks forward from January 2015 to quantify the additional economic costs that would be incurred by South Sudan, other countries in the neighouring region, and the wider international community, should the conflict continue.

The report was prepared by Frontier Economics in collaboration with the Center for Conflict Resolution in Uganda and the Center for Peace and Development Studies at the University of Juba. The Chinese translation of the report is partly supported by Oxfam Hong Kong.
