Municipal financing and revenue mobilization strategies

South Sudan is a largely rural society. However, there has been a proliferation of urban and town councils that are being developed in various states, with Juba being South Sudan’s largest city. As these cities are still at the very beginning of their establishment, there is the opportunity to ensure that they are developed in a way they can support the growth of the whole country.

As a first step, the urban councils will need to establish how they can raise finances to support their growth. Therefore, questions of municipal financing and revenue mobilization strategies are central to this.
