United Nations Development Program (UNDP) works to support the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS). The R-ARCSS provides for strengthening national institutions, stabilizing the economy, and entrenching peace and social cohesion the country. UNDP is partnering with the Government of Norway and the Government of the Republic of South Sudan under the Governance and Economic Management Support Project. The purpose is to strengthen capacities of key national institutions to implement the R-ARCSS, be accountable and revive integrity systems.
UNDP has completed the initial phase of consultations for which capacity requirements were identified to enable key institutions in the economic cluster to deliver on the provisions in the R-ARCSS. A similar exercise is ongoing for the governance and services clusters. These streams of work will be consolidated into one report and used to inform which institutions and capacities need to be attended to with immediate effect. The project on Governance and Economic Management Support will respond to a number of the gaps, however many will still remain unmet.
UNDP is planning to undertake a final consultation to consolidate the three streams of work, including a one-day consultative workshop. It is for these reasons that UNDP is seeking the services of a national consultant to work along with an international consultant: (a) coordinate and compile the three streams of work; and (b) facilitate a feedback workshop in Juba, South Sudan.
