The partnership agreement signed between the ministry of wildlife conservation and tourism and the Africa Tourism Board has been hailed as the silver bullet that will help revive tourism.

The years of destructive conflict have already had negative impacts on wildlife as some species of animals were either killed or migrated to neighboring countries.

The 2018 revitalized peace agreement offers the national government chance to organize the wildlife and tourism sector. The ministry of wildlife together with partners needs to be funded to revive game parks and wildlife national parks across the country.

The government needs to invest in training human resources to be able to work in the tourism and hospitality sector, attract investments into the five-star hotel industry and safari lodges.

In addition, there is need to train South Sudanese to be able to establish business in the tour and travel industry.

The last thing should be to maintain sustainable  peace and security if South Sudan is tap into the billion dollar tourism industry.
