Sudan - Southern Sudan Emergency Food Crisis Response Project (English)

This emergency project paper provides a grant to the Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS), an autonomous entity within the Republic of the Sudan, for a Southern Sudan Emergency Food Crisis Response Project (SSEFCRP). The grant is being undertaken under the Global Food Crisis Response Program (GFRP), which was endorsed by the Board on May 29, 2008, and will be financed out of the Food Price Crisis Response Trust Fund (FPCR TF). The objectives of the GFRP are to: (i) reduce the negative impact of high and volatile food prices on the lives of the poor in a timely way; (ii) support governments in the design of sustainable policies that mitigate the adverse impacts of high and more volatile food prices on poverty while minimizing the creation of long-term market distortions; and (iii) support broad-based growth in productivity and market participation in agriculture to ensure an adequate and sustainable food supply response. The operation will finance three main aspects, namely: (i) accelerated supply response of agricultural productivity to boost increased domestic food production of some selected staple food for the target groups as well as for distribution through trade and reallocation; this element will be implemented through the Norwegian People's Aid (NPA) and Local Authorities (LAs); (ii) social safety net measures targeting the food insecure households in the said six counties and implemented in tandem with the on-going Multi-Donor Trust Fund-Sudan (MDTF-S) and Sudan Recovery Fund (SRF) activities; and (iii) project implementation support to finance technical assistance, operating costs, equipment, and goods to ensure rapid and effective delivery of the proposed results.
