Written in collaboration with Flood Management Initiative, this paper reviews the extent of the flooding in Bor Town in 2020. Using GPS depth measurements and discussions with local residents, the paper first charts the extent of flooding that year, before analysing its welfare impacts for local residents, exacerbating factors and efforts to contain or mitigate damage.

The report recommends that, given how frequent and severe floods are becoming due to global warming, the Government of South Sudan should urgently develop short, medium and long term policy interventions to build flood resilience capacity.
