Titre : Improved Food Security and Livelihood Development for Agro-pastoral Communities in Northern Bahr-el-Ghazal and Warrap States (South Sudan)

Pays/Région : Soudan du Sud

Numéro du projet : 7F-06909.03

Phase en cours : 01.09.2013 - 31.08.2017

Partenaires chargé de la mise en œuvre : Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

Contexte
Since the independence and relative but still very fragile peace in South Sudan, development is possible. However, food insecurity and poverty are closely linked to decades of civil conflict. Challenges are enormous : about 52% of the population lives on less than 1 USD/day (out of them, 92.5% live in rural areas), and 47% is undernourished. 4.7 million people are (1 million severely) food-insecure. Besides farming, livestock is a key productive and economic sector, however suffering from a high prevalence of animal diseases and lack of a veterinary delivery system. Despite the crucial role that women play for food security, gender disparities remain high. The State of Northern Bahr-el Ghazal (NBeG) has one of the worst crop agricultural productivity in the country. The Warrap State faces sustained level of conflict due to competition over access to natural resources. Both are composed of mainly agro-pastoralist communities and have a high population burden of refugees and IDPs. Federal and State Governments do not have adequate human, technical or organizational resources to provide support to the agriculture and livestock sector, including playing effective roles in mediating conflicts.

Présentation
In South Sudan, food insecurity and poverty are intrinsically linked to decades of civil conflict. About 52% of the population lives on less than 1 USD per day, and 47% is undernourished. Improving capacities of farmers and government to face such challenges is crucial. The main objective of this project is to increase the resilience (food security, livelihoods and income) of at least 7’000 households/50’000 people, and to improve community stability for vulnerable but economically active agro-pastoralists in Northern Bahr-el-Ghazal and Warrap States.

Budget alloué par la DDC pour la phase en cours : CHF 3’600’000
