PBF Outcome 1: Support protection and reintegration of communities affected by conflict, including internally displaced people, refugees and victims on gender based violence, providing quick dividends and generate confidence in the peace building process.


Key Project Activities:


  • Provision of Emergency Relief Kits: all returnee households (estimated 4,000 HHs) are provided with emergency NFIs kit to provide temporary shelter and start-up assistance upon arrival, whether in areas of origin or chosen destination
  • Provision of Transition Shelter: Transitional shelter kits, consisting of durable shelter materials (corrugated iron sheets, timber, tools and other construction inputs) are distributed to 500 vulnerable households, targeting female-headed households, older persons, and other persons with special needs. Beneficiary population will target 80% new return households and 20% settled population/host community, based on vulnerability criteria and guidelines to be established.
  • Information, legal assistance, counseling on land and documentation issues: A series of workshops and community outreach to address: land-tenure changes, restitution/compensation, inheritance rights, and the customary legal mechanisms to address competing claims among returnees. Reconciliation and confidence among emergent communities (returnee/host community, Dinka Ngok-Messirya). Information on citizenship rights and options.
  • Support to livelihoods/local markets: Address livelihood challenges through vocational training and provision of start-up kits (urban) and the provision of agricultural inputs (rural)
  • Implementation of Quick-Impact community rehabilitation projects: Demand-driven small-scale rehabilitation projects to address overstretched social services and avoid community tensions in areas of destination or to establish basic services in rural areas of origin, depending on available human resources among communities. It is envisioned that post-referendum, the current tensions between Missirya and Dinka Ngok may have sufficiently subsided to allow for projects that foster peaceful coexistence in contested areas or among communities along traditional migration routes.
