The Sudan Property Rights Program (SPRP), September 2008 – March 2011, assisted the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) to develop a draft land policy based on extensive public consultation and research, as well as provided support to build the capacity of the Southern Sudan Land Commission (SSLC). A follow-on project, the Sudan Rural Land Governance Project (SRLG, 2011 – 2013) helped harmonize the land policy with the 2009 Land Act and supported selected State and local governments for more effective land administration and planning.
