    This is an evaluation of FAO’s programme in South Sudan between December 2013 and December 2015. It fulfills FAO’s corporate commitment to evaluate its L3 emergency operations: South Sudan had been declared an L3 emergency in February 2014, which lasted until the end of 2015. This is predominantly a learning-oriented evaluation, looking back at FAO’s work in the last two years in order to provide guidance for the future strategic direction of the programme. It also fulfils an accountability f unction.

    The evaluation methods comprised: (1) a Participatory Impact Assessment (PIA) of FAO’s Emergency Livelihood Response Programme (ELRP) conducted between April and May 2015, (2) key informant interviews with FAO staff and stakeholders in South Sudan, also in Rome, Nairobi and Addis Ababa between September and December 2015, (3) an online survey of FAO’s Implementing Partners (IPs) completed in November 2015, (4) a dedicated case study of the cash transfer component of the ELRP, (5) a d esk-based review of FAO’s fisheries programme under the ELRP, and (6) documentation review. Apart from the PIA, the fieldwork for the evaluation was carried out in late November/ early December 2015 by a six-person team, in Juba and five states in South Sudan. The evaluation adopted a utilization-oriented approach, involving members of the FAO South Sudan (FAOSS) office from the outset. An early list of action points was produced before the full report had been drafted, a number of which had alr eady been implemented by FAOSS by the time the final report has been published.

    No results found.

    In December 2013 the newly-independent South Sudan plunged into violent conflict as the ruling SPLM split and civil war broke out, triggering a major humanitarian crisis. The prevailing sense of optimism about South Sudan’s future after the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was shattered. This is an evaluation of FAO’s programme in South Sudan between December 2013 and December 2015. It fulfills FAO’s corporate commitment to evaluate its L3 emergency operations: South Sudan had been declared a n L3 emergency in February 2014, which lasted until the end of 2015. This is predominantly a learning-oriented evaluation, looking back at FAO’s work in the last two years in order to provide guidance for the future strategic direction of the programme. It also fulfils an accountability function.

    Information systems boosting food security in South Sudan - GCP/SSD/003/EC 2017
    Also available in:

    The armed conflict that began in December 2013 in South Sudan has resulted in a weakening of government institutions, a breakdown in the provision of basic services, an economic crisis and severe disruption to livelihoods for a majority of the population. The cumulative effect of this has been severe and rising food insecurity across the country. The resultant post-conflict weakening of technical and institutional capacity has significantly eroded the Government’s ability to formulate and implem ent its national food security strategy. Consequently, food security interventions are now informed by Rapid Food Security Assessments and the more robust Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), both of which almost always result in short-term or emergency humanitarian responses. Addressing chronic food insecurity in South Sudan requires a robust food security information system and analysis framework.
