Background

South Sudan remains one of the most severe protection crises in the world with high levels of GBV and significant gross human rights violations. Protection challenges in the form of violence, coercion, exploitation, discrimination, abuse, deliberate deprivation, or neglect of vulnerable individuals/groups threaten the safety, dignity and wellbeing of displaced and conflict affected persons. Flooding has continued to increase vulnerability and expose communities, particularly children and women, to multiple protection risks including violence, loss of life, injury, family separation, gender-based violence, sexual exploitation and abuse, and other protection risks associated with negative coping mechanisms. Continued displacement has weakened the protective environment, undermined resilience, and challenged recovery due to the extensive destruction of property that accompanied these crises.

Repeated shocks have weakened community-based structures and services, and limitations to access services will continue to push families to adopt negative coping mechanisms that expose the vulnerable, particularly children and women, to violence, exploitation, abuse, recruitment, trafficking, child labor, and forced marriage. According to the 2021 FSMNS+, an average of 7 per cent of children drop out of school due to various reasons including high costs associated with education, forced/early marriage, distance to school, and cattle keeping responsibilities. Continued outbreaks of violence, food insecurity, and floods in some parts of the country continue to weaken the protective environment for children and significantly impair the capacity of families to appropriately care for children, putting them at risk of violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Climate shocks, severe drought, massive flooding, and conflicts have contributed to the increase in GBV risks.

In South Sudan, NRC is through static presence delivering humanitarian assistance and responding to humanitarian needs by providing assistance such as shelter, education, food security, livelihoods, legal assistance, and water, sanitation and hygiene sectors to most vulnerable communities in North (Wau, Alek and Aweil), Jonglei (Bor, Twic East and Akobo), Unity (Mayom, Koch and Leer) and Central Equatoria (Juba and Kajo Keji). NRC in South Sudan also provides lifesaving assistance to vulnerable people through mobile emergency teams.NRC seeks to carry out a protection assessment in selected areas on Unity, Jonglei and Central Equatoria states to is to provide essential information about protection risks, capacities, and vulnerabilities specific to conflict affected populations (internally displaced persons, returnees, and host populations).

The consultant will be engaged by the NRC South Sudan Country Office to conduct a protection assessment in 5 counties namely Akobo and Bor South (Jonglei state), Kajo Keji (Central Equatorua state); Koch and Leer (Unity State) that will inform NRC protection programming in South Sudan. In particular, the objectives of the assessment are 1) To identify and establish the different protection risks and issues affecting women, men, boys, and girls (WMBGs) and elder of different age groups including elderly persons living with and without a disability. 2) To establish existing strategies and resources used by WMBGs to identify, mitigate, and respond to identified protection risks and issues. 3) To establish the different protection and other essential services available, access by people at heightened risk and main access barriers to available services
