South Sudan

Mott MacDonald has been active in South Sudan since 1957, initially providing services for water resource management and irrigation development.

We are running the £30 million Basic Services Fund which targets water, sanitation, primary education and healthcare.

Since then we have gained a broad portfolio of experience country-wide from our involvement in creating facilities for refugee communities, post-flood rehabilitation and reconstruction, community potable water supplies, irrigation and livestock watering systems, low-cost housing, and rural access roads.

The scope of services we’ve provided ranges from environmental impact assessments and technical assistance to surveys, technical and economic studies, and engineering designs.

The Government of Southern Sudan has reappointed us to run the Basic Services Fund, which assigns funds to nongovernment contractors to provide essential infrastructure and services. The Fund's £30 million budget targets water, sanitation, primary education, and healthcare. The UK Department for International Development is among the Fund’s principal financial donors.


We are managing the UKAID-funded Girls’ Education South Sudan program, which aims to improve the enrollment, retention, and completion rates, as well as the levels of learning achievement, for 200,000 girls in primary and secondary schools. Our education specialists are working to achieve this through behavior change communication, cash transfers to girls and their families, grants to schools, and practical support to education managers and teachers.


Our technical assistance to the South Sudan Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation has included preparing designs and tender documents for 45 separate works, and supply and services contracts to build new water systems, sanitation facilities, offices, water laboratories, and a 300-bed training center. We have worked in over 100 rural and urban communities across the country, and helped create 600 remote village boreholes. The $30 million project is funded by the World Bank.

We carried out the procurement, management, and supervision of all these contracts as well as providing 35 local and international training courses to water departments in every state.

In each community, we worked with local stakeholders at all stages of project development. Some projects were co-financed by the community and we worked to develop new legal frameworks and contracts to enable this.
