Under the South Sudan NGO Early Recovery and Humanitarian Funding Round, Australian Aid (AusAID) provided $11.3 million to four Australian NGOs. This two-year NGO Round, which officially closes in June 2013, covers five of South Sudan’s 10 states (Jonglei, Lakes, Unity, Western Bahr el-Ghazal and Western Equatoria) and aims to build on the existing work of Australian non-government organisations (ANGOs) and their partners in South Sudan. The projects focus on early community recovery, strengthening access to basic services and responding to emerging humanitarian needs. The funding round also aims to support NGOs to develop policy analysis and lessons learned with direct relevance and applicability to AusAID programming in South Sudan.
AusAID is commissioning an independent review to appraise the performance and outcomes of the South Sudan NGO Early Recovery and Humanitarian Funding Round 2010-2012. The review will measure the extent to which the objectives have been achieved and assess the merit of this modality in the South Sudanese context moving forward. The review will be used as a tool to ensure accountability of the four non-government organisations (NGOs), their partners and AusAID and the findings will inform AusAID’s future engagement in South Sudan and Africa. The review findings will also inform AusAID strategies on how best to engage in the changing aid environment of South Sudan and other fragile and conflict-affected contexts, assessing the optimal modalities, mechanisms and approaches for supporting early recovery in Africa more broadly.
