South Sudan

The youngest country in the world

South Sudan is the youngest country in the world: on 9 July 2011 the nation celebrated its independence from Sudan after more than two decades of war. Just two and a half years later, the country that used to be one of the most under-developed in the world was rocked again by yet another armed conflict. According to UN figures, the ethnically driven fighting cost more than 10,000 people their lives, while more than one million fled the violence. KfW is helping to cope with the consequences of this refugee crisis in South Sudan. In three cities, KfW is also supporting the development of a sustainable water supply.
