The expected outcome of South Sudan Livelihoods Resilience Project (SSLRP) include: 1) empowered rural communities confidently making socio-economic decisions; 2) improved food and nutrition security; 3) increased income from farm and non-farm activities; 4) increased community resilience; 5) access to well-trained community-based extension workers and agribusiness; and 6) stronger and better policy and regulatory environment.
Additional funding will help to bridge the humanitarian-development gap by supporting recovery opportunities anchored in the agriculture sector that will promote livelihoods improvement, peace, and stabilization to boost ongoing investments in the parent project.
SSLRP has four components:
Component 0: Disaster Response and Risk Mitigation. It will ensure that in the event of disasters, whether environmental or man-made, SSLRP can adequately respond to safeguard its developmental gains.
Component 1: Community-driven development (CDD) plans. It will support communities to develop Community Development Plans (CDPs) that responds to community-level constraints, priorities and opportunities for economic empowerment.
Component 2: Agriculture Production and Rural Livelihood Support. It will provide investments and services to support smallholders and communities to address the constraints to productivity, post-harvest losses and market linkages identified and prioritized in CDPs, and address unemployment through financing alternative livelihoods for youth and women.
Component 3: Capacity building for government and communities on CDD approach. It supports the development of Rural Agricultural Finance and Cooperative Development policies.
