This project aims to address the alarming situation of Gender Based Violence (GBV) in South Sudan that is driven by gender inequality, deep patriarchal beliefs, values and norms; civil and inter-communal conflicts and weak institutional and technical capacities to prevent and respond to GBV. The high prevalence of GBV currently hinders women's participation in the peace process and undermines any progress to sustainable peace in South Sudan as it prevents an inclusive process and exemplifies the general lack of security, justice and protection for the population. The project is launched at an opportune time, when the Revitalized Agreement for Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) has recently been signed (12 September 2018). Implementation of local level peace building initiatives as proposed by this project, will greatly contribute to ensuring that people in vulnerable situations, especially women and girls, have the agency to participate in building social stability and peace at different levels, which is a precondition to sustaining peace. 'lne project helps reconcile and bring peace in Bor and Aweil by addressing the structural and systemic drivers of GBV th.tough the collective expertise and experience of UN entities together.
