The SSDP is an interim National Plan to promote growth and development following the country's independence in July 2011. The long term goal of the Government is to invest heavily in hydropower generation. 

The national plan aims to:

  • Build 2 mini hydro on River Yei
  • Conduct feasibility study for Fula Rapids hydroelectric power plant

The institutional and regulatory framework for developing a national energy policy or development of RE technologies is still in early stages in South Sudan, and the SSDP serves as an interim policy document to guide further policy making.
