EXCLUSIVE: South Sudan economy on the verge of collapse, World Bank warns

May 6, 2012 (WASHINGTON) – The newly independent state of South Sudan is quickly headed towards an economic cliff in light of its decision to shut down oil production which went into effect earlier this year, says a confidential report by the World Bank.

South Sudan took with it 75% of the oil reserves that existed when it was united with the north. But the landlocked nation could only export its oil through the pipelines that run through Sudan’s territories and end at the Red Sea port city.

Following a bitter row over how much Juba should pay Khartoum for the service, South Sudan made a unilateral decision to suspend oil production in response to Sudan’s seizure of a portion of the exported oil to make up for what it says are unpaid transit fees.

South Sudanese officials insisted that even though oil exports constitutes 98% of Juba’s revenue, they are capable of surviving until an alternative pipeline is built. They also stress that just as much as the people of South Sudan were able to live through a long and devastating civil war with the north they could manage few years of economic hardships.

But a briefing by a senior World Bank official on March 1 obtained by Sudan Tribune paints a very bleak picture of what awaits South Sudan’s economy in the months ahead.

"[T]he World Bank has never seen a situation as dramatic as the one faced by South Sudan," the World Bank’s Director of Economic Policy and Poverty Reduction Programs for Africa Marcelo Giugale is quoted as telling representatives of the major donor groups including the United States, United Kingdom, European Union (EU), Norway and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) among others.

The same presentation was given to the top officials in South Sudan on February 29, 2012.

Giugale told the donors that neither South Sudan president Salva Kiir nor senior member of his cabinet "were aware of the economic implications of the [oil] shutdown".

According to the transcript, the World Bank official "candidly said that the decision was shocking and that officials present had not internalized nor understood the consequences of the decision".

South Sudan is a unique and unprecedented situation globally, Giugale said because "countries in crisis usually face a collapse in growth rather than of GDP".

As a result of a "sharp" drop in influx of hard currency and once citizens in South Sudan realize that value of their local currency is slipping "there will be a run for the dollars and families with dollars will almost certainly shift them outside the country".

Giugale pointed out that because most South Sudanese are not fully financial literate the run on the point has not yet happened.

"Once it starts, the currency will almost certainly collapse," Giugale says.

The World Bank official went on to analyse the situation of South Sudan’s foreign reserves and it is estimated that even with austerity measures adopted by the government in Juba, depletion of reserves can occur by next July "at which point state collapse becomes a real possibility".

If South Sudan takes the drastic measure of cutting monthly spending by 77%, the reserves can only last until December 2013.

The social impact of the oil shutdown is no less daunting as Giugale points out. The percentage of population in living in poverty will jump from 51% in 2012 to 83% in 2013. In gross numbers 3.6 million more people will fall below the poverty line.

Under-five child mortality will double from 10% live births in 2012 to 20% in 2013 and school enrollment will drop from 50% to 20% over the same time period.

Giugale also dismissed arguments made by South Sudanese officials that a large percentage of the population will be immune from the impact because it is not part of the cash economy.

"Even the poorest households interact with the cash economy during the three-five month hunger gap through some form of trade, usually livestock. The terms of trade for livestock (goats and cattle) will depreciate sharply against imported staple food commodities pushing millions of households out of the market and deepening food insecurity. This is likely to occur at the height of the planting and harvest season, with profound implications for the next two-three productive cycles" Giugale says.

NO VIABLE ALTERNATIVE

The options before South Sudan are very limited and include implementation of severe austerity measures and establishing social safety net programs.

Even if Juba were to triple non-oil revenue as they project its impact will be "negligible" the World Bank official says.

Giugale stated that the World Bank analysis might help speed up reforms within South Sudan’s civil service that were otherwise not possible. But he cautioned that an economic collapse "could result in social and political fragmentation, unrest and instability".

The G-6 donors group reacted to the World Bank finding by issuing a warning to South Sudan government that they are not prepared to fill the fiscal gap and as the situation continues they will not support the programs asked for by Juba.

"We anticipate a reorientation of our programs to protect the vulnerable, focused on life saving interventions. We cannot additionally implement the aid strategies that have been agreed upon," the donors said.

South Sudan is urged by the donors to resolve the current standoff with Khartoum over the oil exports in order to build its institutions and capacity.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Wednesday ordered Sudan and South Sudan to return to negotiations within two weeks and resolve several issues including oil within four months.

Any side that fails to comply or cooperate with mediation could face sanctions, according to the UNSC resolution.

          You are right. Our economy is not bad and we can endure since most of products are imports anyways, that includes imports from Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and all arround the world. For the meantime, our dollars will stay intact, since we have local foods to support ourselves as pre-CPA period. The speculators are halucinating.

          Sudan can write any fake headline about South Sudan anyway they want, but they cannot alter the reality about South Sudan.

          South Sudan shut-down the pipeline in January that used to transit half a million barrels of crude oil daily and another one recently in April at Panthou that transit 115,000 barrels daily, these are all the facts.

      The term insect used by president Albshir is directed towards the SPLM. Generalizing this term and calling all people from south Sudan insects is not acceptable. As a Muslim if you are you should know Islam respect people from all background and value their being.

        Wadomba, I absolutely agree with you 100%. SS are pple just like us.They are not insects & shouldn’t be called like that. Anger & frustration from stupid comments from stuiped guys should not descend us that low. Calling them insects is against Islam and against the brotherhood which exist between us for centuries.SPLA crimes against the pple of S & N Sudan are commited by theifs & thugs...co

      Respect should come first then trust will follow and then we can build a good relationship which is much needed by both of us.

    That outdated report of March 2012 should be updated. South Sudan is now processing a total of 10 billion dollars loan from different friends in the international community. That amount will keep our economy moving for three years and by that time our huge oil will go back to market. We are a free nation with free leaders, NOT the indicted ones with billions of heavy debts collapsing them.

    To me people suffering is not a source of joy. Being on the verge of collapse means very shortly the Govt. of SS will not be able to pay salaries, fund education and health sectors etc. or provide hard currency for medicine and food supplies. U ppl. should do something to reverse this ugly process. SPLA/M thugs are 100% responsible for this tragedy.

    South Sudanese officials insisted that even though oil exports constitutes 98% of Juba’s revenue, they are capable of surviving until an alternative pipeline is built. They also stress that just as much as the people of South Sudan were able to live through a long and devastating civil war with the north they could manage few years of economic hardships.

If you live in a hut most of your life, have cattle and have milk and (assida) on your side, then who cares about a collapse in the economy. Our generation and our father’s generation grew up just like that. If that’s what collapes is all about, then we’re safe in South Sudan

Even China pegged its 8 Billion USD development loans on conditions that S.Sudan fixes its relations with Sudan. Soon you will see hyper inflation. Your country is beyond fucked.

However, South Sudan will survive despite that it’s not hit by any bomb, and despite that the IMF exists, because we South Sudanese have the power and the will to endure all kinds of weather, so let’s not back down to IMF.
