IP policies in Africa no.s 46 and 47: South Sudan and Sudan

South Sudan 
Neither Sudan nor South Sudan have a national IP policy yet nor do they seem to be working on one, which is understandable for countries that have been mired in military conflict. Sudan is a member of ARIPO, the AU and COMESA and as such subscribes to the COMESA IP policy as well as benefits from any national IP policy initiatives from these three organisations.

For IP laws see Sudan's WIPOLex entry here and South Sudan's here
