Since it’s beginning in 2005, the Sudan Post-Conflict Community-Based Recovery and Rehabilitation Programme has been providing basic services to rural communities across Sudan. The largest and most comprehensive recovery programme in Sudan, the RRP is managed by the UNDP on behalf of the Government of National Unity and the Government of Southern Sudan with funding from the European Commission and Government of Norway. Linking rehabilitation and development, the RRP has a total of 44 NGOs working together across 10 locations. The programme focuses on three areas: capacity building, improving livelihoods and providing basic services.

•Targeting approximately 800,000 beneficiaries, the programme’s objectives include three components: capacity building and institutional strengthening; improving livelihoods; and providing support to basic services.
•The RRP aims to build the capacity of local government authorities (LGAs) through such activities as administrative and financial training, building and equipping administration offices, organizing village development committees and directly including LGAs in the management of RRP activities.
•To improve livelihoods, the RRP is building vocational centres, and training people in such activities as bicycle repair, tailoring, carpentry, and welding. The RRP aims to improve food security through agricultural training activities, and improving market structures and access routes.
•The RRP will improve people’s access to basic services such as access to water, healthcare, and education facilities.
