High levels of organised violence in Jonglei and the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA) continue to have a negative impact on the political, social, and economic development of the region. External actors are often not fully cognizant of the dynamic motivations and interactions among the interpersonal, grassroots, state, and national level political and economic agendas that produce these consistently high levels of organised violence alongside an otherwise incrementally progressing national peace process.
The South Sudan Reconciliation Stabilisation and Resilience Trust Fund (RSRTF) is funding several projects to address the renewed violence that has gripped Jonglei and the GPAA since 2019. In December 2020, the RSRTF approved the project entitled “Community Violence Reduction (CVR) in central southern Jonglei and the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA)” (the Project). The Project aims to support and enable communities on the Duk Ridge, in greater Pieri, greater Akobo, and lowland Pibor to experience exercising economic power in non-violent ways through collaborative, consensus-building processes that lead to concrete improvements for the communities on a material level, according to priorities they identify, and to counter multi-layered manifestations of violence. Coordinated by the World Food Programme (WFP), the Project will be implemented by a consortium of UN and non-UN entities to achieve five objectives:
(i) Fostering the development of collaborative resource allocation, planning and implementation methodologies within and among communities in central-southern Jonglei and the GPAA;
(ii) Implementing targeted interventions identified and selected by communities as having the potential to reduce violent competition between them over resources;
(iii) Strengthening informal justice systems and frameworks, including through locally driven reconciliatory mechanisms and building foundations to concretise linkages to an effective formal justice system; while
(iv) Reducing the economic marginalization of youth and women; and
(v) Supporting norms of non-violence, conflict management, and reconciliation.
Phase I of the Project began in January 2021 and ended in March 2023. Phase II of the Project was approved in March 2023 and is expected to run until March 2025.
To support implementation of the third objective – “Strengthening informal justice systems and frameworks, including through locally driven reconciliatory mechanisms and building foundations to concretise linkages to an effective formal justice system” – the UNMISS Rule of Law Advisory Section (RoLAS) intends to hire a National Consultant with experience in implementing community-focused rule of law programming in South Sudan
