This project aims to support grassroots South Sudanese women’s organizations to support peacebuilding and reconciliation in their communities, through capacity building and providing small grants for their operations. South Sudan is at a critical moment, transitioning from conflict to post-conflict, with a fragile peace process in place. Women have played an essential role in the path to peace. This project works to further support enhancing gender mainstreaming and the integration of women and girls’ rights and experiences in South Sudan’s transitional institutions at the highest levels, through a Gender Advisor to the Special Envoy for the Inter-Governmental Authority of Development (IGAD). Project activities include: (1) providing capacity building to women politicians and women’s organizations to meaningfully engage in the Revitalised Agreement of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS); and (2) ensuring gender-sensitivity of members to the R-ARCSS pre-transitional and transitional institutions, including in areas of protection, leadership and participation.
