Description and results


The project aims to meet the immediate food needs of vulnerable people in South Sudan, while promoting longer-term food security through community projects that increase food production. Project activities include: (1) providing cash or food assistance to households in exchange for work on community projects such as vegetable gardens, irrigation canals and ponds; (2) supplying agricultural tools such as improved seeds, watering cans and wheelbarrows; (3) providing training to participants on climate-smart agriculture, crop diversification, and reduction of post-harvest losses; and (4) developing women’s capacity in financial literacy and numeracy. This project works to target vulnerable households, including many that are women-headed, have family members with disabilities or who are chronically ill, or include acutely malnourished children.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) reduced short-term food gaps of women, households and communities; (2) enhanced capacities of women, households and communities to adapt to climate shocks and stressors; (3) women and girls have increased power in decision-making regarding food security and nutrition in households, communities and societies; and (4) affected populations are able to hold the World Food Programme and partners accountable for meeting their hunger needs in a manner that reflects their views and preferences.
