An estimated 19,500 livestock keepers from Abyei and Eastern Equatoria State in South Sudan have increased their livestock productions and incomes through access to improved production and marketing services.
Through SNV’s support, counties in South Sudan are rehabilitating their water points and manage the mainenance themselves. Sanitation is being promoted and improved.
Our target is for 35,000 smallholder farmers in South Sudan to gain food security and increase productivity, income and employment by 2015.
SNV started work in South Sudan in 2005, after the signing of the country’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement. South Sudan’s declaration of independence in 2011 and its official recognition by the UN and the international community was a significant milestone in history. The declaration of independence has further heightened development expectations of the South Sudanese people who now look to their new government to deliver on the much needed improved livelihoods and public goods and services. Yet many social, economic and political challenges remain amidst opportunities. To that extent unlocking the huge economic potential of this country and delivering the peace dividend is intrinsically linked to tackling the myriad of such socio-economic and political challenges.
SNV’s focus in South Sudan is aimed at boosting the productive and marketing capacities of the poor in a manner adapted to the opportunities available in the country. It is for these reasons that SNV works in the Agriculture and WASH sectors.
