he South Sudan Development Plan (SSDP) outlines priorities of the Government of the Republic of South Sudan in the interim period from independence to the end of 2013. The overarching objective of the SSDP is to ensure that: “South Sudan is a united and peaceful new nation, building strong foundations for good governance, economic prosperity and enhanced quality of life for all“. The SSDP identifies national policy goals and priorities across four priority pillars: (1) Governance; (2) Economic Development; (3) Social and Human Development; and (4) Conflict Prevention and Security.
The Rule of Law sector is part of the Conflict Prevention and Security Pillar and comprises the following institutions: Ministry of Internal Affairs now Ministry of Interior; Ministry of Justice; SS Police Service; SS Prison Service; SS Fire Service; SS Human Rights Commission; Law Review Commission; Community Security and Small Arms Control Bureau; Customs; Immigration; Judiciary
The objective of the Rule of Law Sector of the South Sudan Development Plan (SSDP) is “to strengthen the Rule of Law in South Sudan by enforcing and maintaining law and order, providing equitable access to justice and a functioning criminal justice system, increasing security in communities, and promoting and protecting human rights for all.” The SSDP identifies strengthening the rule of law institutions as a top priority and emphasizes the need for a sectoral approach to reform. The plan recognizes that the work of the police, prosecutions, judiciary and prisons services is inextricably linked and that gaps in service delivery in one institution could negate the gains in another.
UNDP, South Sudan supports the Rule of Law sector through a three pronged approach. The Governance and Rule of Law Unit’s Access to Justice and Rule of Law programme supports State building through technical institutional support to key sector institutions including the Judiciary, Ministry of Justice (MoJ), the Police and Prison Services to improve service delivery; and also  seeks to increase the scope and reach of the State through infrastructure development. The programme also supports access to justice through empowerment of right holders through support to the human rights commission, civil society organizations, community led rule of law forums; and promoting access to justice and strengthening of the customary justice system.
UNDP South Sudan now seeks Technical Advisory support to be co-located in the Ministry of Justice and to provide results based project management for the Access to Justice and Rule of Law Programme.
