Sustainable agriculture for economic resiliency project in South Sudan

Jul 2019

With the funding from USAID, FAO is implementing “Sustainable Agriculture for Economic Resiliency” project in four areas of South Sudan, namely Jonglei, Northern Bahr El Ghazal and Western Equatoria States. The project aims to improve the resilience of households, communities and agriculture systems in stressed and crisis level of food insecure regions of South Sudan. The specific outcome of the intervention is increased household food and nutrition security and income through increasing production, and diversification of livelihoods in a manner, which contributes to sustainability and fosters peaceful co-existence.

In order to restore and strengthen good agriculture production practices prior to planting season the project organized seed fairs to support access to high quality local varieties of seeds for 416 crop production groups (12,500 households). Members of crop production groups were able to access locally available crop seeds during seed fairs through voucher system, while additional varieties of seeds (maize, cowpea and sesame) and tools were directly distributed to beneficiaries upon their preferences.
