14/12/2009-31/08/2012
Project code:
SUD/09/001/01/34
Objective:

Facilitate the economic and social reintegration of ex-combatants into civilian communities, contributing to broader security, reconciliation and recovery in South Sudan.

Key partners:

Ministries of Agriculture and Forestry and of Animal Resources and Fisheries, UNDP, Non-Governmental Organizations.

Beneficiaries reached:

1 873 demobilized ex-combatants, including 1 132 women and 741 men.

Activities implemented:
  • Registered, raised awareness of and equipped demobilized ex-combatants for reintegration enterprises in agriculture, including horticulture production, cereal/pulse production, small ruminants, poultry, goat rearing, fishery, beekeeping and draft animal technology.
  • Carried out training of trainers workshops on agricultural and life skills for 84 FAO staff and partners.
  • Organized training groups at payam and sub-payam for demobilized ex-combatants and carried out training seminars, using seven technical training modules developed for the enterprises.
Impact:
  • In total, 1 873 demobilized ex-combatants received 3 606 start-up kits for agricultural enterprises (an average of two per person) and backstopping support. The programme contributed to overall peace and stability in South Sudan, with many ex-combatants successfully reintegrating into communities and stabilizing their livelihoods.
  • A total of 1 779 ex-combatants selected animal traction to increase their own crop production and to earn income by cultivating land for other farmers. Approximately 65 percent of the ex-combatants cultivated at least three times more land (six feddans) than farmers without ploughs.
  • During the training of trainer workshops, trainees developed technical extension messages in the local dialect to enhance communication with the ex-combatants.
