Abstract

The present paper discusses issues of the tribal interactions living on the borders between North and South Sudan. Foresights are looked for, especially after secession. There are multiple ethnic relations and mutual resources collectively utilized. Different tribes live on those resources, in specifics those who depend on a livelihood of herding cattle, camels, sheep and goats. The conceptions of no-borders, free water resources and open range were entrenched for hundreds of years. The sudden realization of necessities of new borders generates revulsion, sense of deprivation and end of traditional life practice. Additionally, development issues are weak with lack of infrastructure, investments and governmental services of health, education and the existence of central authorities. The conclusions focus on the necessity of infusing funds, services and directed development programs. Moreover, new agreements are required to avoid transforming those societies into outlaw structures of smuggling arms, nurturing rebel groups or generating other secessions per se.
