Reflections on agriculture and rural development, drawing on experiences in South Sudan in the 1970s and early 1980s

In April 2023, Alex Duncan revisited South Sudan for the first time in 40 years since working there for four years as an agricultural economist.  This is a lecture he gave at Juba University on the work that was then started, the lessons learned and the implications for the present.

Donor approaches to risk in fragile and conflict affected states

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

This is a comparative study donor of approaches to risk management in fragile and conflict affected states. The findings are based on evidence from four case study countries: Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Somalia and Nepal (and additional examples drawn from Myanmar, Afghanistan and Haiti). The study was commissioned by the OECD INCAF Task Team on Finance and Aid, who identified a need to complement ongoing policy level work on risk management with evidence from the field on how donors manage risk in practice.
