According to the 2017 Climate Change Variability Index, South Sudan ranks among the five countries in the world most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Collection of data on greenhouse gas emissions is a very big challenge and this is attributed mainly to the state of insecurity in the country as well as lack of financial resources and limited technical and institutional capacity in South Sudan.
South Sudan aims to undertake the policies and actions in following sectors: energy generation and use Land Use and Land use Change and Transport, to address its future emissions that are likely to result from growth strategies. These efforts are contingent on availability of technical assistance to develop the necessary regulations, policies, and standards as well as financial support for investing in low carbon options.
