EU support to Sudan, 2011
The EU Foreign Affairs Ministers have allocated 200 million euro to South Sudan. This follows the proposal of the European Commission. These funds will support the implementation of the Government of South Sudan's forthcoming "2011-13 Development Plan". They could be used for projects related to education, health, agriculture, food security and democratic governance. South Sudan will formally declare its independence on 9 July 2011, as a result of the referendum held in January 2011, part of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement. Decades of civil war have left South Sudan extremely poor, with numerous humanitarian and socio-economic challenges to cope with in the context of limited governance capacity and political fragility.South Sudan has the highest infant-mortality rates and the lowest education indicators in the world. One child in ten still dies before its first birthday and less than 1 percent of girls complete primary education.The specific actions to be funded will be identified in the context of the Government of South Sudan's "2011-13 Development Plan", expected to be presented to the international donors later in 2011. In July 2010, the European Union allocated 150 million euro to the whole of Sudan to address the needs of the most vulnerable populations. Of this sum, 85 million euro was earmarked for South Sudan. However, it is now recognised that more is needed in order to tackle the immense needs of helping to rebuild the State institutions, as well as meeting the development needs of the majority of the South Sudanese population. Since 2005 the EU has committed development assistance of over 665 million euro to Sudan with more than 45% dedicated to South Sudan. This assistance is addressing post-conflict recovery, rehabilitation and development activities. Sudan is the EU's largest beneficiary country for humanitarian aid, with 131 million euro from the 2010 EU budget. This aid is additional to development aid and covers operations in Darfur, South Sudan and the Transitional Areas.
