Presented by Ryan Pavel
Southern Sudan’s recent independence is accompanied by a myriad of challenges as the country establishes itself. Many of these challenges have been and will continue to be addressed by aid organizations working in the area who are providing services when the government fails to do so. But should anything change in the strategy of these veteran aid organizations considering that South Sudan is now its own nation? What should the priorities be now that South Sudan can no longer rely as heavily on infrastructure in the north to continue exporting millions of barrels of oil to access this reliable source of income? July 9th is unquestionably a historic day for the people of South Sudan. Now is the time when aid organizations must work alongside the invigorated government of the south to provide Southern Sudanese with the resources to create truly sustainable impacts.
Attending this webinar will provide the attendee with a basic knowledge of key aid organizations working in South Sudan. Attendees will also learn of the challenges facing the people of this region as well as suggestions on how to best assist them as they establish their nation.
This webinar is a great opportunity for individuals working and studying in areas related to international development, economic development, human rights, international aid, and African Relations.
