This research was commissioned by Pact Sudan through the UK Department for International Development (DfID). The objective of the report was to provide evidence to inform key actors in Southern Sudan in consulting Southern Sudan's citizens and in designing, implementing and prioritising policies and activities that support peace and stability. Three research teams spent a month gathering data in Eastern Equatoria, Upper Nile and Greater Bahr el-Ghazal, returning to Sudan during the 2010 elections. They conducted over 300 interviews, administered questionnaires, held drawing competitions in schools and ran participatory exercises with women, youths and elders. They found that despite great achievements, neither the Government of Southern Sudan nor the international agencies working there have achieved what they set out to do during the Interim Period. Accountable government structures on all levels, reliable service delivery, civic education, security and a coordinated effort among development agencies remain elusive goals
