Improvements in governance and associated reforms are among the most important factors for inclusive and sustainable growth in Sudan. Poverty and social exclusion are inextricably linked to weak governance, as there is exclusiveness for some geographic areas such as Kordofan, Blue Nile and Darfur from having their fair share of national resources. Now after the signing of Juba peace agreement in October 2020, which stated clear distribution of resources for these areas that have been affected by the conflict for a long time. Therefore, the economic policy should address and link to SDGs, focusing on strengthening the responsiveness and accountability of the state through good governance.
