November 25, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s ten states governors are converging in the national capital, Juba, for the 2nd Governors Forum 15 months after the country gained its independence from Sudan last year.

The office of the President on Sunday announced the gathering which will begin on Monday and run for four days.

The forum was created to avail an opportunity for the governors and their state governments to share and resolve on issues of importance and concern with the national government. The deliberations always touch on issues of governance, economy, security and development among others.

However, the core discussions for this 2nd forum are expected to dwell on food security and how to promote agricultural activities across the ten states.

South Sudan is dependent on food commodities imported from the neighboring countries including Sudan despite its vast arable land that can produce food to feed its population which is less than 10 million.

The event is organized by the office of the president with support from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

      Mr Jalaby
      The jaan you talking about is a man made problem and it will stop. But,in reallty there is no hungry in south sudan. If government stop creating problem between comunities because of political deferences they have,I think south sudan will be more batter plce to live in than north-sudan.

      Cordial relations are beneficial to both producers and consumers.Not the whole of South Sudan is dependent on food imports,there are locations that are food secure.Where on earth will Sudan sell its dura which is only consumed in Sudan and South Sudan.Eritreans and Ethiopians eat teff.Central Africans eat cassava,Libyans and Egyptians eat wheat.OK next year South Sudan will be self reliant.

    This forum produces nothing, n it is of no use if nothing improves down in states. Corruption is rampant, insecurity is on high increase daily. States like Warrap n Lakes are poorly managed with their Governors, the most corrupt n with nothing to initiate, or implement. Nothing to show for being Governors.
