Closing date: 27 May 2022

1.0. INTRODUCTION

Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) is an International Non-Governmental Organization and has been operating in South Sudan since 1986. NPA’s programme implementation is structured into three programmes:

i. Civil Society Development Programme:

NPA works in partnership 27 civil society organizations, the work of which is broadly divided into four areas:

  • Conflicts over rights to land and natural resources often occur in settings impacted by urbanization and internal displacement. NPA partners do what they can to mediate in such conflicts and help local communities protect their rights.
  • Freedom of expression and media issues are important. Partners work closely with various radio stations in order to spread information about dialogue, peace and reconciliation and provide training to journalists.
  • Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is a widespread problem in South Sudan. NPA partners work to strengthen women’s rights by mobilizing women’s groups, strengthening legal protection for women and holding public awareness campaigns.
  • NPA supports young adults who promote non-violent conflict resolution. Means to this end include art and performances that encourage peace and reconciliation.

ii. Emergency Response Programme:

This programme focuses on providing food aid to vulnerable populations. The aim of the programme is to save lives and support post-emergency transitional recovery processes through:

  • Provision of emergency recovery livelihoods kits.
  • Provision of unconditional multipurpose cash assistance.

These projects are carried out by NPA employees in cooperation with local communities.

NPA also supports communities to prevent/mitigate climate change related challenges. The programme activities are implemented directly by NPA and in partnership with 14 local NGOs and Community Based Organizations (CBO’s).

The RD activities are divided into three programming areas:

Activities include capacity building of local structures (NRM committees, DRR committees and peace committees), natural resource mapping and support in peace building/conflict mitigation.

2.0. BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE

Protracted conflict in South Sudan has led to a perpetual state of humanitarian crisis. Although there has been a decline in large-scale hostilities over the past years, localized violence has persisted in many pockets of the country. The humanitarian situation in South Sudan remains dire. More than two-thirds of the South Sudanese population and some 300,000 refugees and asylum seekers in South Sudan need some form of humanitarian assistance and protection in 2021, as the country continues to experience cumulative effects of years of conflict, a surge in sub-national violence, unprecedented flooding and hyperinflation, further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. The lack of durable peace and limited investment in basic services impedes many people’s ability to move towards sustainable development. The impacts of climate change have been high in South Sudan where up to 95% of the population (about 11 million) depend on climate- sensitive sectors which include forestry resources, agriculture and fisheries.

NPA is implementing various projects to address the immediate needs, improve the lives and livelihoods of affected populations and promote peace.

  4. To support NPA in rolling out the CRM policy by training NPA staff in Juba and across all the field offices on the CRM policy, system and the relevant implementation tools.
  5. To provide concrete recommendations to NPA on the staffing and financial requirements needed to ensure that the CRM remains fully operational after the roll-out phase.
