Labour market in South Sudan

Author(s) : Rosati, Furio C; Guarcello, Lorenzo; Lyon, Scott
Abstract : The report assesses labour market conditions in the new state of South Sudan (officially the Republic of South Sudan). It highlights a number of key challenges faced by the new country in ensuring adequate livelihood opportunites for its population. The overwhelmingly rural labour force is concentrated primarily in low productivity, non-wage employment. By far the largest share of workers remain in subsistance farming and animal husbandry. Levels of human capital in the work force are extremely low, even among young workers. Rates of child labour are very high, jeopardising children’s ability to acquire the human capital necessary for decent work in the future.
