Sudan Recovery Fund-Southern Sudan (SRF-SS)

Juba, South Sudan – Ahead of South Sudan’s independence scheduled for July 2011, the Sudan Recovery Fund-Southern Sudan (SRF-SS), established in July 2008, is focusing on  projects that demonstrate peace dividends, encourage participation and empowerment of communities affected by conflict and poverty, and address stabilization in areas affected by insecurity.  The SRF-SS aims to facilitate the transition from humanitarian to recovery assistance in South Sudan. It is supported by a total  of US$ 111.8 million committed by the Department for International Development (DFID) of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

Round III of the SRF supports security and strengthens the capacity of state institutions to address stabilization.  It is focused on strengthening decentralized planning, prioritization and decision-making for conflict-related programming.  Round III is aimed specifically towards initiatives that help resolve resource-based conflicts at the community level such as constructing hafirs (large water catchments for cattle), which provide communities access to a scarce resource. In addition, SRF helps improve the security environment at the state level for example by building police posts and security access roads. More about the Sudan Recovery Fund-Southern Sudan (SRF-SS).
