Sudan Recovery Fund - Southern
SRF is a ‘pooled fund’
established in July 2008, with the
aim of bridging the gap in the transition
from humanitarian to recovery assistance
through catalytic, high impact and
quickly disbursed projects to demonstrate
peace dividends, build the capacities
of GoSS ministries and encourage the
participation and empowerment of communities
affected by conflict and poverty.
There are four SRF focus areas:
• Consolidating peace and security
• Delivering basic services
• Stabilizing livelihoods
• Building capacity for decentralized
and democratic governance
Round One of the SRF strategy focuses
on Livelihoods and Recovery. Funds
are provided to international NGOs
to provide programmes in all 10 states
in the following four key areas:
1. Improving agro-pastoral
2. Increased access
to markets and skills.
3. Water, sanitation
and child protection initiatives.
4. Engagement and
capacity development of civil society
organizations and local authorities.
