The South Sudan Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSRF) is a multi-donor initiative that aims to contribute to better development and humanitarian outcomes for the people of South Sudan by improving the conflict-sensitivity of programming. This includes improving the capacity of donors and implementing agencies to identify conflict drivers, mitigate the unique risks they pose to programming in fragile states, and ensure that programming supports peace rather than exacerbates existing tensions and divisions. With Canada’s support, the CSRF is helping to build this capacity through the provision of technical analysis, research, and practical advice on the application of conflict-sensitive principles and best practices. Project activities include: (1) developing shared guidelines and standards on conflict sensitivity; (2) conducting research and analysis to support decision-making; (3) conducting conflict sensitivity assessments of implementing partners and providing capacity building support; and (4) sharing lessons learned and best practices among a wider global policy audience engaging in fragile states.

Expected results 

The expected intermediate outcomes include: (1) improved conflict sensitivity of development and humanitarian programming in South Sudan; and (2) improved harmonization of approaches to conflict-sensitive programming in South Sudan.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of the end of the project in March 2019 include: (1) an increased level of interest in conflict sensitivity and the CSRF’s services has been noted, as evidenced by the growing number of people who attend training sessions, access research products, participate in outreach events and seek support to better institutionalize conflict sensitivity within their organizations; (2) conflict sensitivity assessments of 15 implementing agencies in South Sudan have been produced; (3) tailored guidance on how to further institutionalize conflict sensitivity within their organizations has been provided; (4) sustained capacity building and mentorship provided to 10 national NGOs over a one year period; (5) training courses on conflict sensitivity in Juba at both introductory and expert levels have been facilitated; and (6) 81 conflict sensitivity awareness outreach activities (e.g. briefings and updates) conducted for the South Sudan development community. Overall, the CSRF has successfully promoted awareness and reflection on the issue of conflict sensitivity in South Sudan and has helped development actors (including donors and NGOs) translate theory into practice in their approach to development programming within the country.
