The complex and interlocking nature of the conflicts in the Republic of South Sudan combined with the still relatively weak institutions inevitably create the need for capacity strengthening in order to respond to the tasks at hand. The Southern Sudan Bureau for Community Security and Small Arms Control (SSBCSSAC) has done a tremendous job at Juba level and State/county levels. Many partners have developed a keen interest to work in the field of community security but this has created enormous challenges related to lack of coordinated implementation by both government institutions and development partners leading to duplication, concentration of interventions in few areas, inability to ably track performance and the sidelining of the Bureau – which is the lead agency in community security.
In addition, there is a major gap between the Bureau staff based at the State level and those based at the head office. There is no adequate follow up and clarity of role for the Bureau staff at State level and the concerns of the State Bureau staff do not receive adequate attention and follow up leading to demoralization. This has affected the ability of the Bureau to effectively execute its mandate at state and community level.
After a critical review of the current capacity gaps at the Bureau, the conclusion points to the need for a focal person that will be charged with the responsibility of spearheading the Bureau work related to policy formulation, programming and coordinating implementation of the Bureau activities with the partners. This person will be hosted by the SSBCSSAC and report to the UNDP CSAC Project Manager/Head of the SSBCSSAC. He/she will be based in Juba, South Sudan, with extensive field travel to all 10 States.
