Managing risk in unstable countries: Promoting conflict-sensitive Chinese investment in South Sudan


Building on its established programmes in China and South Sudan, in September 2012 Saferworld launched a project that encourages Chinese policymakers and commercial actors engaging in South Sudan to be more conflict sensitive and open to dialogue with other actors.

Over the past ten years through assessments, training, advocacy and advisory support, working with a range of governments, multilateral bodies, development/humanitarian agencies and local civil society groups, Saferworld has strengthened the capacity of a variety of stakeholders to work on conflict sensitive approaches to support peace and development in South Sudan and elsewhere.

This report, Managing risk in unstable countries: Promoting conflict-sensitive investment in South Sudan, focuses on Chinese companies currently operating, or looking to invest, in South Sudan. It explores some of the key challenges faced by Chinese companies and offers suggestions on how companies can contribute to a more stable and prosperous future for the people of South Sudan.

The report builds on a series of workshops convened and research conducted by Saferworld in China and South Sudan during the course of 2014.
