01.10.2014 - 30.09.2017

The project is intended to sustainably improve water supplies for the 720,000 inhabitants and their livestock in the Southern Sudanese state of Northern Bahr el Ghazal.

Since the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between Northern and Southern Sudan was signed in 2005, it has become one of the main points of return for displaced persons from Southern Sudan.

01.06.2013 - 31.03.2015

In South Sudan wood is an important fuel and building material.  As a result of the large flow of refugees from Sudan, the pressure on already scarce natural resources, including wood, in some regions of the country has further increased.  For this reason, the SDC is funding a forest-mapping project with the aim of promoting the sustainable use of wood in South Sudan.

South Sudan, ADCORD: Scaling up SGBV response in Juba

01.10.2016 - 31.12.2016

The escalation of violence in July 2016 and the unimpeded commitment of rapes by armed men during and directly after the outbreak of fighting have created the urgent need for additional services to strengthen and scale up SGBV response to SGBV survivors and conduct prevention awareness.


South Sudan, DCA: Educational Support in Area 1

01.09.2016 - 31.08.2018

The two civil wars fought in Area 1 as well as prolonged marginalization in the education system have deprived local communities from access to education for decades. In response, Local Partner 1 (LP1) has worked with Area 1 communities since 1995 and supported the introduction of a new Kenyan curriculum. Improved access and quality of education for all in Area 1 is both a basic human right and a powerful tool to address the cycles of poverty and conflict affecting the communities.

NRC: Protection Cluster Support 2016

01.08.2016 - 31.07.2017

Prolonged conflict has led to high levels of insecurity and displacement in South Sudan. This does not only require humanitarians to scale up and coordinate their interventions, but to also be creative and knowledgeable enough to respond to the needs of and provide protection to the affected populations. This is the third phase of a project that aims to improve contextual understanding among humanitarian actors and decision-makers in South Sudan in order to enable a more strategic and effective response, through independent protection and conflict analysis.

South Sudan Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) Contribution 2016

20.07.2016 - 31.12.2016

The various humanitarian interventions in South Sudan require an excellent donor coordination and justifiable prioritization procedure. The Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) South Sudan, established in 2012, does not only provide timely and substantial financial provisions for humanitarian projects, it also brings together several important stakeholders involved in the humanitarian response in South Sudan. Contributing to the CHF means to strengthen this mechanism and enable financial support to the most critical interventions. It also ensures the inclusion of SDC in decision making processes and facilitates a coordinated and strengthened advocacy within the international community.

South Sudan, WFP: UNHAS Contribution 2016

16.07.2016 - 31.12.2016

Poor transport infrastructure, lack of access to remote locations and persistent insecurity present a very challenging operation environment in South Sudan. The only available option to reach most locations and needy population in South Sudan is through air transport. The WFP managed United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) is the only viable, reliable and safe transport option available to the humanitarian community at large to access the needy population and provide them with humanitarian assistance.

The situation shows prospects for response and recovery interventions outside the Bentiu PoC.


Project completed

South Sudan, REACH: Area of Origin

01.05.2016 - 31.05.2017

Constant population movements in Southern Unity due to insecurity have hampered humanitarian access to information about IDPs in many locations. REACH’s response seeks to bridge the information gap and provide a better understanding of the IDP situation in Southern Unity for humanitarians on the ground, to ensure effective and informed humanitarian response to the affected population.
