South Sudan Recovery Fund Round Three: State Stabilisation Programme

Supporting state-led projects


The South Sudan Recovery Fund Round Three supports state-led initiatives in Eastern Equatoria, Jonglei, Lakes and Warrap states to improve security and reduce the level of conflict at the state and community levels and expand delivery of basic services in the remote and conflict prone areas. Projects include construction of county headquarters, courts, police stations, reservoirs (locally known as haffirs - for watering cattle), boreholes (for human consumption), roads, and state radio station.

Achievements

(1)  Eastern Equatoria State Stabilization Programme (EESP)

  • Improved access to the remote and conflict prone areas of the state through the rehabilitation of Lobira-Chahari-Lotome-Kikilei-Lotukei-Kanangok (140km) Road: Construction of a bridge over Kidepo river and a culvert at Kiman is ongoing.
  • Improved access to public administration and rule of law services through the construction of four county Headquarters and one prison complex. Equipment and furniture have been also procured and installed in these facilities. The facilities are in use by the government.
  •  Improved access to water sources in the remote areas through the construction of four haffirs, one water filtration unit  and eight boreholes: Moreover, to ensure proper management and sustainability of the water sources, a total of 12 water management committees have been formed and 108 (68 males and 40 females) community members trained.

(2) Jonglei Stabilization Programme (JSP)

  • Improved access to information, educational programmes and peacebuilding messages by establishing fully functional State-Managed Radio Station. The radio station was broadcasting three hours per day and gearing up to broadcast six hours per day when the conflict broke out in December 2013 and operations had to be stopped. Most of the radio station equipment has been damaged or stolen during the conflict.  
  • Improved access to the remote and conflict prone areas through the construction of Akobo-Pochalla (148km) Road: The construction of the road commenced in March 2011 and progress was slow due to the insecurity situation which made it difficult for contractors to work on the site. By December 2013, only 35 km had been opened for traffic. The project was suspended since mid-December due to the recurrent violent conflict in the area.

(3)  Lakes State Stabilization Programme (LSSP)

  • Improved access to the remote and conflict prone areas through the construction of Karich-Poloich-Amok-Piny-Panyijar (120km) and Aluakluak-Akuoc-Cok (41km) Road. Construction commenced in May 2011 and by December 2013, about 72km (out of 120km) of the Karich-Poloich-Amok-Piny-Panyijar road has been completed whilst the Aluakluak-Akuoc-Cok road was fully completed.
  • Improved access to water sources in the remote and conflict prone areas through the construction of  haffirs and  boreholes. By December 2013, allof the 16 targeted boreholes had been completed whilst the construction of haffirs was still ongoing.
  • Improved access to public administration and rule of law services through the construction of county courts and police stations. The Lakes State Government confirmed the construction of seven county courts, five payam police stations and two county police stations. By December 2013, seven county courts and seven police stations have been constructed, furnished with the necessary equipment and furniture, certified and handed over to the state government. The infrastructures are being used by the government.

(4)  Warrap State Stabilization Programme (LSSP)

  • Improved access to the remote and conflict prone areas through the construction of Warrup-Akop-Pakur-Mashraar (70km) Road, which was completed and handed over to the government.
  • Improved access to public administration and rule of law services through the construction of four police stations.  Construction of four police stations in Tonj East, Tonj North, Gogrial East and Twic Counties has been completed. The police stations have been furnished and handed over and are in use by the government.
  • Improved access to water sources in the remote and conflict prone areas through the construction of two haffirs and four boreholes.  Construction work has been completed, and the water sources are in use by the local communities. Moreover, to ensure proper management and sustainability of the water sources, six water management committees have been established and 56 (35 males and 21 females) local community members have trained.
