The work examines the implications of the Sudanese horrific ethnic conflict that erupted in 2003.Though, the country had witnessed series of conflicts right from her independence in 1956, it is argued that the civil strife of the first decade of the 20th century was fuelled by racism, lack of power and wealth sharing, as well as inequality in the distribution of infrastructure. It is also argued in the study that the major factors that led to the conflict were the imposition of sharia on the country as well as the marginalisation of South Sudan. The egregious crisis has devastated the socio-economic life of the people, while millions were displaced from their homes. It is unarguable that Sudan now suffers from inflation, high cost of living and high unemployment rate. Politically, the study points out that the strife has ended the marginalisation of SouthSudan. It is very crystal clear that though the problem has been solved, but there continued to surface serious border clashes between the two countries. It is against the backdrop of these border skirmishes and other problems that the study has proposed certain recommendations that hopes will guarantee sustainable development in the region. These, according to the research; include the accommodation of the cultural, religious and developmental differences within the objective of one indivisible nature and an integrated development that would ensure the involvement and participation of all Sudanese; resumption of fresh communication between South Sudan government and government of Sudan; adoption of the African Union framework which will serve as a tool that will guide the systematic identification of needs and gaps in post-conflict countries .
