To build urban communities resilience to food insecurity by building their skills, physical assets, knowledge and urban rural market linkages. This will increase food security for a minimum of 15,500 urban households, benefitting 108,500 of the poorest and most vulnerable by December 2015.

Présentation du projet
The Urban Food Security, Livelihoods and Markets (UFSLM) programme is a DFID-funded component of a broader programme aiming to stimulate market and value chain development entitled “Support to Food Security and the Development of Agricultural Markets in South Sudan” (FSDAM). The FSDAM programme is led by the German government’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and is implemented by the German Government’s technical cooperation agency, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, (GIZ). BMZ’s contribution to the FSDAM project is approximately £4,650,000 (Euro 5,750,000), and the UFSLM element financed by DFID amounts to £10 million.

BMZ–financed work under the FSDAM programme focuses on the greater greenbelt in the South of the country (Eastern, Central and Western Equatoria), while the DFID-funded UFSLM project operates in the Northern and Western Bahr el Ghazals and Warrap. Work in both geographical areas aims to facilitate business links between rural and urban actors along the value chain to enable economic diversification, the growth of markets in urban centres, and increased household and community resilience.

UFSLM started on 12 June 2013 and is due for completion in Dec 2015. It is one of three DFID-supported livelihoods programmes intended to operate concurrently in the three states of Northern Bahr El Ghazal, Western Bahr El Ghazal and Warrap, and to complement each other. The other two programmes are : Building Resilience through Asset Creation and Enhancement (BRACE), a cash and food for assets programme designed to stimulate rural livelihoods ; and FROMA2B, a feeder road programme designed to link rural areas to urban markets. At the time of writing, BRACE had been running for approximately twenty months and FROMA2B was in its planning and design phase.
