Key Housing, Land and Property (HLP) Issues in Urban Areas of South Sudan

This document aims to provide an overview of the key challenges related to housing, land and property (HLP) issues in the expanding urban and peri-urban areas of South Sudan. It points out key issues that require due attention once shelter actors begin to engage more substantially in shelter provision in urban areas, in particular with regards to the return and relocation of IDPs. In addition, it presents an overview of land-relevant actors and legislation which must inform any shelter interventions in such settings. In doing so, it provides updated background information which complements and adds to the 2015 Land in Shelter: Due Diligence Guidelines for Shelter Actors in South Sudan.
