The Sudan’s economy grew by 4.91 per cent in 2015, up from 2.68 per cent the previous year, thanks to better macroeconomic policies and strong performances in the agricultural, livestock, forestry and fishery sectors. The country continues to face the same challenges, namely carrying out further economic policy reforms, maintaining stability, ending the civil war and achieving sustainable development. Although the situation remains volatile, it is hoped that a national dialogue will take place, putting an end to the civil war and ensuring macroeconomic stability. A sound urban development strategy is essential to help the country to tackle demographic changes and the effects of the civil war, as well as get to grips with shrinking disparities between cities and rural areas.
