About

The South Sudan Recovery Fund - SSRF was established in May 2008 at the Sudan Consortium meeting in Oslo to support the provision of recovery assistance to South Sudan and bridge the gap between the short-term emergency/humanitarian aid and longer-term development assistance. Under the overall authority of SSRF Steering Committee, chaired by the Minister of Finance and Economic Planning and co-chaired by the UN Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Resident Coordinator, the SSRF is a pooled funding mechanism intended to channel funds to support GoSS recovery priorities and provide immediate benefits for the population while laying the foundation for sustainable development.

Round 1 was designed to address immediate recovery needs to bring a "peace dividend" to rural areas of target vulnerable groups in South Sudan.  This was made possible through initiatives that supported income generation, rural infrastructure, and related activities identified as priorities by the SSRF Steering Committee and Government. The target sectors included agriculture, skills training and income generation, which focused on vulnerable groups (youth, war veterans, women, orphans and widows) and historically under-served regions.  International NGOs implemented Round 1 projects throughout all ten states of South Sudan.

As the projects under Round 1 were implemented by International NGOs, the SSRF Steering Committee endorsed the Small Grants Mechanism in 2009 under Round 2 to target National NGOs and CBOs that had not received significant donor financing or that focused on marginalized communities.  Support to CBOs aimed to increase community-level capacity, local partnerships and local participation in recovery and development.  A capacity development support grant was awarded to South Sudan Reconstruction and Development Fund (SSRDF) to enhance GoSS’s capacity to manage reconstruction and development funds in-country.
