Formulation and implementation of comprehensive rural development strategy is imperative for enhancing economic growth, poverty reduction, and delivery of quality services to both rural and urban inhabitants. A 6 month study was conducted to explore some aspects of rural economic development in South Sudan. A total of 400 respondents were interviewed using semi structured questionnaire. Desk reviews and observations, theoretical framework, empirical and two models of regression analyses were also undertaken. The results revealed that rural economy is a dynamic and instrumental socio economic system exposing to constant changes under the influence of exogenous and endogenous factors that achieve trivial level of development. Empirical and regression analyses showed that empirical functions by education level had a significant correlation between education attained and individual income and overall economic prosperity. The government is encouraged to ensure that sustainable rural development strategy is provided on the condition of economic growth combined with social transformations accompanied by the solution of socially important issues to bring about the desire changes in rural economic development, environment preservation, satisfaction of social needs of the communities, solution of the problems of social security and social policy. Further rural development strategies are highly needed for achieving sustainable development in South Sudan.
