The aim of the paper is to define the importance of regional planning and regional development projects and their role in achieving economic development and social justice in the Sudan, by knowing the impact of regional planning on achieving the principle of balanced development between the center and regions. As well as the impact of regional development projects and their role in achieving political, economic and social stability of urban and rural communities.
The paper assumed that Sudan’s development plans and programs did not take into account the issues and needs of the community for economic development and social justice.
The citizens of regions and states are not actively involved in the development of regional and local development programs and projects.
The paper used the historical and descriptive analytical method to extrapolate reality. The paper relied on secondary data sources such as reference books, some studies and official reports, statistics and data on regional development projects.
The paper concluded with the most important results that the planning of development in Sudan does not occur at the level of the states and regions, and the consequent creation of many of the political and social problems that put the country away from the path of development and progress.
And that there is a lack of specialized structures concerned with the process of development planning at the local and regional levels, which in turn reflects negatively on the effectiveness of the process of regional development planning.
Keywords: regional planning, regional development, economic planning, economic development, social development, social justice.
