The armed conflict that erupted in South Sudan on 15 December 2013 was a culmination of months of tensions, mistrust and division in the ruling SPLM party and public disagreement amongst party leadership on the implementation of party rules and regulations and the party constitution reform process prior to the National Elections envisaged for 2015. Within days of armed violence erupting, large-scale defections spread across the security sector. Nation building and civil administration were seriously compromised by mobilization of armed groups, local militias as well as deep ethnic cleavages opened up in some communities leading to large scale movement of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
After several weeks of violence, an Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities was signed on 23 January 2014 following negotiations brokered by the Inter-governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), which however was quickly violated, resulting in further massive displacement. On 9 May, an Agreement to Resolve the Crisis in South Sudan was signed between the parties. Since then, fighting has started to decrease significantly. As of October 2014, 469,000 refugees have fled the country and 1.4 million individuals remain internally displaced and most are seeking shelter in remote rural areas across the country. Displacement patterns remain fluid due to violence. There are currently over 100,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) sheltering in nine UN bases across South Sudan. Living conditions in some PoC sites are inadequate and very harsh as these facilities were never designed to host populations not least in such a large numbers. Approximately 203,200 people, displaced in the early stages of the conflict, have since returned to their homes, and in many cases have lost all of their belongings and livelihoods.
The UN's response to the crisis has been swift. A response plan focusing on saving lives, protecting conflict-affected communities, resumption of livelihoods and logistical support was developed. However, critical elements of stability such as economic alternatives, community cohesion, rule of law, governance and peace and reconciliation to potentially high-risk groups, both in the settlements and in communities of origin, need to be introduced explicitly for a more integrated response.
UNDP's response was defined within a 90-day Action Plan , guided by three interrelated objectives, notably: to promote peace and stabilization through national reconciliation and healing, stabilization and community security; to build resilient communities through early economic recovery and extension of responsive local government; and to deepen democracy to assist consolidation of a political settlement within the framework of constitutionalism, credible transitional justice processes and promote the rule of law. On the basis of the 90-day Plan, an Integrated Crisis Prevention and Recovery Programme was developed and received US$ 3,250,000 in seed funding from UNDP's former Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery (BCPR). The Pilot Programme is currently being implemented and is yielding positive results. The pilot programme with special reference to the livelihood and local economic recovery component needs to be developed into a full-fledged project document with a view to replication and scaling up in the country. It is within this context of strengthening UNDP South Sudan's response that the consultant on livelihoods and local economic recovery is being recruited.
