Abstract

This study investigated factors that are hindering the development of rural areas to determine the existing approaches, policies, strategies, and potential resources, as well as examine the current socio-economic benefit of rural development to the local community and existing challenges to rural development. Propose possible interventions for rural people’s integration in Awerial County. The study adopted quantitative and qualitative techniques to be reliable and accurate, and structured questionnaires were used to be easy to administer. The study population was the target demographic of 100 respondents. To select an 80-person sample population at random, the Krejcie and Morgan table from 1970 was used. But SPSS 16.0, a statistical package for social research, and Advance Excel were employed to analyze this study. Natural disasters such as floods and droughts harmed rural development by 42.5%; man-made disasters such as insecurity and conflict harmed rural development by 40%; insufficient access to capital harmed rural development by 37.5%; and the inaccessibility of necessities for livelihoods harmed rural development by 50%; the health sector was harmed by a shortage of skilled health personnel, as demonstrated by 32.5%. Furthermore, poverty affected rural development by 42.55%. The main limitations of this study are the language barrier among the respondents, limited access to information due to the Internet, and mobility. The practical implication of this study was to propose positive approaches, strategies, policies, and rural integrated modalities. On the basis of originality or value, the study presented new knowledge for public decision-making about rural development in South Sudan.
