South Sudan

South Sudan became the world’s youngest nation in 2011 after decades of warfare. In the years since independence, development has been hampered by continued conflict and political instability. Yet with its vast natural resources and some of the richest agricultural land in Africa, South Sudan holds great potential for growth.

Since 2011, TechnoServe and its partner Nespresso have been working directly with local smallholder farmers to revive high-quality coffee production in Yei, a relatively stable part of the country. These efforts are helping to diversify South Sudan’s economy and build a globally competitive agricultural export industry from the ground up.
