Country: South Sudan
Organization: Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Germany
Closing date: 27 Jun 2021

TERMS OF REFERENCE

Train program staff and Fisheries Extension Agents on Improved Fishing Methods, Post-harvest Handling and Processing in Akobo and Duk Counties, South Sudan

Project: Pathways to Resilience – P2R

USAID BHA funded – Emergency Food Security Program in South Sudan: award

# 720BHA21CA00002

1.0 Introduction

Pathways to Resilience (P2R) is a three-year (December 1, 2020- November 30, 2023) USAID/BHA funded project implemented by a consortium of Catholic Relief Serves (CRS) as a prime and Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Germany (VSFG) as a sub. The goal of the project is to improve food and nutrition security through improved livelihood, productivity, and social cohesion. The project will target 135,468 households in the four counties: Duk and Akobo in Jonglei State, and Bundi and Kapoeta North in Eastern Equatoria State. Torit, the capital of Eastern Equatoria State, will serve as the coordination hub for the project.

2.0 The Organization

Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Germany (VSF Germany) is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) providing humanitarian aid and development assistance to pastoralists and vulnerable communities in areas where livestock is of importance. VSF Germany supports livestock and agricultural production systems, marketing, food safety, drought responses and mitigation, capacity development of communities and governmental institutions, peace and conflict resolution. The desired impact of VSF Germany interventions is to increase agricultural and livestock productivity as well as related incomes; and subsequent improvements of food security and livelihoods for millions of people in the countries of operation in the Greater Horn of Africa. Countries programs are designed to deliver integrated programing solutions that address the key challenges and needs that enable our beneficiary groups, particularly men, women, the youth and other disadvantaged and marginalized groups to access skills, opportunities and resources that contribute to the improvement of their productive lives and development of communities. VSF Germany currently implements activities in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Uganda.

Vétérinaires sans Frontières – Germany (VSF-G) in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) are implementing a project titled “Pathways to Resilience Project (P2R)” in the two States of Jonglei, and Eastern Equatoria covering a total of 4 counties (Duk, Akobo, Budi and Kapoeta North counties). The intervention aims to ensure that there is improved and sustained food and Nutrition security amongst the targeted rural communities for the two States, South Sudan. This will be achieved through ensuring that food and nutrition insecure communities have improved resilience to conflict and climate stressors / shocks as well as having better livelihood sources

3.0 Project Background and Context

South Sudan has experienced decades of conflict, at the national level between the government and the opposition, as well as regional anti-government insurgencies, inter-communal conflict over resources, and rivalries amongst ethnic groups. This conflict, paired with recurring climatic shocks, has triggered population displacement; disrupted agricultural production and adaptive capacity; eroded trade, markets and basic services; exacerbating food and nutrition insecurity and increased household dependency on humanitarian aid. Recurring climatic events including drought, floods, livestock diseases, and crop pests have also negatively affected production. The worst seasonal flooding in a generation affected nearly a million people in Eastern Equatoria, Jonglei and Upper Nile in recent months. Floods began in June when crops were at peak growth, forcing farmers to abandon their fields, resulting in crop and livestock losses of up to 23%. This is predicted to have devastating effects on food insecurity, triggering an early lean season in 2020 and increasing the number of people in IPC 4. According to the most recent Food Security and Nutrition Monitoring System Report, rates of global acute malnutrition are above the emergency threshold at 16.2%.

People under the age of 29 make up more than 70% of South Sudan’s population, yet have few economic opportunities. Fewer than half of South Sudanese youth are employed, and only 12% are formally employed. Deficits in the education system has resulted in South Sudan’s literacy rate being under 35% for those 15 years and older. Under-skilled, uneducated, and vulnerable male youth represent the greatest risk of renewed conflict in South Sudan. Without access to resources, their livelihoods options, other than herding other people’s cattle, are raiding livestock and children, criminality, or paid mobilization for civil war by various rival protagonists. Many have been mobilized for military action in local or national conflicts in South Sudan since 2005, including the current civil war.

Despite violence and trauma, the September 2019 peace deal has brought renewed hope. So far, over 1.2 million displaced South Sudanese have returned to their homes. In some areas, 95% of these returnees say they intend to stay permanently. As communities absorb this influx, creating more pressure on already limited services and infrastructure, conflict-sensitive humanitarian support will be crucial to protect gains in adaptive capacity and prevent increases in food insecurity and conflict.

The project proposes to target the below states and counties, based on factors including food and nutrition insecurity, vulnerability to climate shocks (including flood-affected areas), ethnic and political diversity, scale of returnees, and Partnership for Recovery and Resilience (PfRR) areas.

In Eastern Equatoria State, CRS proposes to focus on Budi and Kapoeta North, building on CRS long tradition in Eastern Equatoria. In Budi, the number of people in IPC3 has increased steadily, from 40% of the population in 2016 to 60% in 2019. In Kapoeta North, the percent of the population in IPC3 has declined slightly since 2016 but the percentage of people in IPC4 is trending upwards. Over half of people in Kapoeta North report consuming wild foods regularly to offset hunger. Budi and Kapoeta North were both affected by the 2019 flooding.

Jonglei State has long been a site of ethnic and political tensions. Dinka Duk and Murle Pibor are under government control, while Nuer Akobo remains under the control of the opposition. Targeting these three counties will create opportunities for cross-community trade and positive interaction, building social cohesion in this fragile area. IPC and GAM rates in these areas are persistently among the highest in the country, and they have been some of the hardest-hit by the 2019 flooding, with up to 250,000 people affected across the three counties

Project overall objective: Communities have improved and sustained food and nutrition security.**

Specific objectives:

  1. Food and nutrition insecure communities have improved resilience to climate and conflict shocks and stressors

  2. Food and nutrition insecure communities have improved livelihoods

VSF-Germany is implementing specific objective 2 which has the following relevant intermediate results: Food and nutrition insecure HH have increased food production. The expected outputs from this IR are:

Output i) Producers trained on improved production techniques that are climate-adaptive

Output ii) Seeds and small ruminants distributed to local producers**

Project: Pathways to Resilience – P2R

USAID BHA funded – Emergency Food Security Program in South Sudan: award # 720BHA21CA00002

1.0 Introduction

Pathways to Resilience (P2R) is a three-year (December 1, 2020- November 30, 2023) USAID/BHA funded project implemented by a consortium of Catholic Relief Serves (CRS) as a prime and Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Germany (VSFG) as a sub. The goal of the project is to improve food and nutrition security through improved livelihood, productivity, and social cohesion. The project will target 135,468 households in the four counties: Duk and Akobo in Jonglei State, and Bundi and Kapoeta North in Eastern Equatoria State. Torit, the capital of Eastern Equatoria State, will serve as the coordination hub for the project.

2.0 The Organization

Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Germany (VSF Germany) is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) providing humanitarian aid and development assistance to pastoralists and vulnerable communities in areas where livestock is of importance. VSF Germany supports livestock and agricultural production systems, marketing, food safety, drought responses and mitigation, capacity development of communities and governmental institutions, peace and conflict resolution. The desired impact of VSF Germany interventions is to increase agricultural and livestock productivity as well as related incomes; and subsequent improvements of food security and livelihoods for millions of people in the countries of operation in the Greater Horn of Africa. Countries programs are designed to deliver integrated programing solutions that address the key challenges and needs that enable our beneficiary groups, particularly men, women, the youth and other disadvantaged and marginalized groups to access skills, opportunities and resources that contribute to the improvement of their productive lives and development of communities. VSF Germany currently implements activities in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Uganda.

Vétérinaires sans Frontières – Germany (VSF-G) in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) are implementing a project titled “Pathways to Resilience Project (P2R)” in the two States of Jonglei, and Eastern Equatoria covering a total of 4 counties (Duk, Akobo, Budi and Kapoeta North counties). The intervention aims to ensure that there is improved and sustained food and Nutrition security amongst the targeted rural communities for the two States, South Sudan. This will be achieved through ensuring that food and nutrition insecure communities have improved resilience to conflict and climate stressors / shocks as well as having better livelihood sources

3.0 Project Background and Context

South Sudan has experienced decades of conflict, at the national level between the government and the opposition, as well as regional anti-government insurgencies, inter-communal conflict over resources, and rivalries amongst ethnic groups. This conflict, paired with recurring climatic shocks, has triggered population displacement; disrupted agricultural production and adaptive capacity; eroded trade, markets and basic services; exacerbating food and nutrition insecurity and increased household dependency on humanitarian aid. Recurring climatic events including drought, floods, livestock diseases, and crop pests have also negatively affected production. The worst seasonal flooding in a generation affected nearly a million people in Eastern Equatoria, Jonglei and Upper Nile in recent months. Floods began in June when crops were at peak growth, forcing farmers to abandon their fields, resulting in crop and livestock losses of up to 23%. This is predicted to have devastating effects on food insecurity, triggering an early lean season in 2020 and increasing the number of people in IPC 4. According to the most recent Food Security and Nutrition Monitoring System Report, rates of global acute malnutrition are above the emergency threshold at 16.2%.

People under the age of 29 make up more than 70% of South Sudan’s population, yet have few economic opportunities. Fewer than half of South Sudanese youth are employed, and only 12% are formally employed. Deficits in the education system has resulted in South Sudan’s literacy rate being under 35% for those 15 years and older. Under-skilled, uneducated, and vulnerable male youth represent the greatest risk of renewed conflict in South Sudan. Without access to resources, their livelihoods options, other than herding other people’s cattle, are raiding livestock and children, criminality, or paid mobilization for civil war by various rival protagonists. Many have been mobilized for military action in local or national conflicts in South Sudan since 2005, including the current civil war.

Despite violence and trauma, the September 2019 peace deal has brought renewed hope. So far, over 1.2 million displaced South Sudanese have returned to their homes. In some areas, 95% of these returnees say they intend to stay permanently. As communities absorb this influx, creating more pressure on already limited services and infrastructure, conflict-sensitive humanitarian support will be crucial to protect gains in adaptive capacity and prevent increases in food insecurity and conflict.

The project proposes to target the below states and counties, based on factors including food and nutrition insecurity, vulnerability to climate shocks (including flood-affected areas), ethnic and political diversity, scale of returnees, and Partnership for Recovery and Resilience (PfRR) areas.

In Eastern Equatoria State, CRS proposes to focus on Budi and Kapoeta North, building on CRS long tradition in Eastern Equatoria. In Budi, the number of people in IPC3 has increased steadily, from 40% of the population in 2016 to 60% in 2019. In Kapoeta North, the percent of the population in IPC3 has declined slightly since 2016 but the percentage of people in IPC4 is trending upwards. Over half of people in Kapoeta North report consuming wild foods regularly to offset hunger. Budi and Kapoeta North were both affected by the 2019 flooding.

Jonglei State has long been a site of ethnic and political tensions. Dinka Duk and Murle Pibor are under government control, while Nuer Akobo remains under the control of the opposition. Targeting these three counties will create opportunities for cross-community trade and positive interaction, building social cohesion in this fragile area. IPC and GAM rates in these areas are persistently among the highest in the country, and they have been some of the hardest-hit by the 2019 flooding, with up to 250,000 people affected across the three counties
