The central part of the conflict, according to the report, is almost the complete economic significance of South Sudan from oil. "Strengthening militarization and securing the government's oil industry's securitization", working to protect their own economic interests in the oil sector, risk "turning South Sudan into a state-run police state, built on fear, rent seeking and corruption." The report says. In addition, oil revenues are used to finance combat operations.
Although the report focuses on last year, Klafham notes that the Central Equatorial State continues to struggle between government forces and a militant group. The policy of "scorched earth" led to burning houses, killing civilians, as well as women and girls. Thousands of civilians were displaced in the last bombing of hostilities
