On September 12, 2018, the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) was signed with a view to bringing conflict in South Sudan to an end. While their appears to be positive commitment from the parties to ensure that the R-ARCSS succeeds, successful implementation is not contingent only on the aspirational nature of the content but rather the creation of an enabling environment and management of risks associated with implementation of issues such as trust building, transparency around the implementation process, consensus building on the nature of the state (federal versus central), rule of law and security sector reform, demilitarization, demobilization and integration, allocation of oil revenue, governance architecture and public service reform, constitution-making, and elections.
Emerging from an era of armed conflict, South Sudan lacks the institutional and professional capacity to immediately resume or establish a functional, effective and accountable justice and security system, or the means for rights bearers to access justice. Weak legal, regulatory, policy and institutional framework further hinders capacity of rule of law institutions to provide service in accordance with national and international standards of rights, justice and equality. Lawyers, judges, prosecutors, police personnel, prison personnel, legislators and civil servants operate in a dysfunctional system, where salaries, equipment and positive incentives are irregular, and where perceptions and commitment to legal imperatives have been battered.
The high prevalence in SGBV in South Sudan will leave a legacy not only on individual survivors, but also on entire communities. Often, women are disempowered and deprived of their rights, voice and agency, which consequently increases their vulnerability.36 Moreover, women are often unaware of their rights, and often lack legal protection and access to mechanisms by which their grievances can be remedied. Where women are not able to claim their rights and obtain recourse for violations of their rights, establishing effective, efficient and fair justice systems is needed, for example, to ensure that women are able to seek justice when denied inheritance.
In order to build on existing support already being provided by UNDP and upscale sustainable and measurable interventions it is intended to reinforce existing best-practice areas into a coherent engagement. Ensuring sustainable peace requires a comprehensive measuring of results and impact of rule of law support as well as the development of an M&E system that would measure impact and results over time in areas of rule of law and connected to SDG Goal 16.
Duties and Responsibilities
The objective of the consultancy is to; support UNDP in partnership with UNMISS ROL and UN Police in developing an M&E system that would better measure impact and results over time in areas of rule of law and connected to Goal 16 in collaboration with the Global Alliance on Goal 16
