 Position context and key challenges

Since the aftermath of the South Sudanese conflict that erupted in December 2013, ACTED has been contributing to the delivery of humanitarian services to 1.7 million displaced persons, 270,767 refugees, and 5.1 million people in need. ACTED continues to providing camp management services in 2 Protection of Civilian (POC) Sites, 1 informal settlement and 2 refugee camps, while contributing to Camp Coordination as co-lead of the Camp Coordination and Camp Management cluster. Acknowledging the importance of engaging in early recovery to transition towards sustainable solutions, ACTED supports communities in improving their livelihoods through the promotion of income generating activities, community saving groups, and Agro Pastoralist Field schools in Greater Bahr al Ghazal, Greater Upper Nile and Lakes.

 Improving effective delivery of services in displacement sites

As camp manager, ACTED coordinates the delivery of services to internally displaced people and refugees in Maban, Awerial, Bor and Juba Counties benefiting a total of over 140,000 refugees and 110,000 internally displaced persons. Within the scope of camp management interventions, ACTED’s team in South Sudan undertake a multi-sectoral approach to establish and empower internal governance structures, ensure access to water and hygienic facilities, facilitate peace between host and displaced communities, and increase the protection of people with special needs. A high emphasis was put in establishing accountability and feedback system at the various displacement sites to improve the delivery of services.

Ensuring access to safe water and a sanitary and hygienic living environment

In 2015, ACTED prioritized the provision of water and sanitation services to people at risk of disease outbreak as well as displaced populations with limited access to water and sanitation facilities. ACTED has been expanding the provision of water and sanitation services to the refugee population of Doro, Kaya and Gendrassa camp and improved sanitation practices in rural areas such as Akobo county.

 Improving food security and ensuring access to livelihoods

ACTED’s interventions focud on first addressing the dire food security needs of displaced populations through emergency food distributions within internally displaced and refugee camps, while also working to improve the resilience of vulnerable people across the country through seed and tool distributions and the offer of food for the construction of community assets. Through this approach, ACTED aims to both address food insecurity in displaced populations while building population resilience in the transition towards early recovery, managing to reach over 150,000 beneficiaries.

 Transitioning into early recovery

As the country slowly recovers from the havoc wrought from decades of conflict, ACTED’s programming increasingly focus on building resilience and improving living conditions of the country’s poor and displaced populations. Moving forward, ACTED’s camp team is looking at devising and executing comprehensive plans for the return or integration of displaced populations. Secondly, ACTED aims to increase the living standards and ensure the livelihoods of the South Sudanese population, via increasing access to income generating activities and sustainable incomes, tackling the underlying drivers of food insecurity and poverty.
