The project aims at addressing most urgent ES/NFI needs of 23,000 IDPs in Ezo, Nzara and Yambio Counties, through provision of in-kind assistance. Therefore, YEDA will provide NFI solutions to 11,540 IDPs in Ezo County, 2,000 in Nzara County and 9,460 IDPs in Yambio County (of which 50% female and 54% children, according to the HRP 2021), and construct 400 temporary shelters for the most vulnerable IDP households, who have been affected by displacement due to recent conflict in Tambura County. Beneficiary targeting will be guided by the SNFI Cluster criteria PLWs, children lt5, the elderly, PWN/PWDs (15% in line with the allocation strategy), high number of dependents, multiple displacement, lack of ties with the local community/purchasing power, GBV and COVID-19 risks associated with SNFI needs. The evaluation of mutliple vulnerabilities will allow the YEDA staff to select the households most in need. The item distribution will be based on needs, market and response assessments conducted in the area of interest, and will be tailored to the needs and composition of each household, avoiding blanket distribution as much as possible. The shelter construction will target the 400 most vulnerable households affected by displacement and at high risk of GBV and/or contracting infectuous diseases. The activity will will be conducted by trained volunteers selected locally, under the supervision of YEDA’s shelter construction expert, and in coordination with HLP and protection partners. The response modality is informed by YEDA’s previous experience in Western Equatoria State, and the need to implement rapid response in the targeted areas using the SNFI supplies. YEDA has recently take over SNFI partner coordination in Western Equatoria State, establishing static presence in Yambio County and coordinating SNFI humanitarian partners (such as UNHCR, NRC, WVI and ICRC among others), through the work of the YEDA SNFI Project Officer who also has the role of SNFI State Focal Point for WES. YEDA will also leverage such strategic position to boost humanitarian coordination with other clusters, partners and UNOCHA, through the Yambio humanitarian hub and other availavble fora. Our 12 years of experience delivering humanitarian assistance to vulnerable displaced communities of South Sudan, and coordination of humanitarian response in Greater Equatoria, provided us the key tools and know-how to successfully implement this project. All interventions will be carried out following Covid-19 preventive measures social distancing, use of PPE and preventive messaging through IEC materials. YEDA will maintain static presence Mundri, Yambio and Juba, to continue with humanitarian coordination and ensure the ability to quickly deploy a mobile team in each area of intervention. YEDA will also build the capacity of local partners, staff and volunteers, providing them support while conducting response to build the technical capacity. Risk of conflict over land will be mitigate by identifying land ownership/tenure arrangements and local mechanisms for settling land disputes, involving all relevant local authorities and local stakeholders to handle eventual cases of disputes, and training staff, volunteers and communities in HLP access rights. To measure the project success and take evidence-based decision on the course of action, continuous monitoring and end evaluation will be conducted jointly with communities/local leaders as part of a CFRM on weekly/monthly basis. Coordination with the SNFI cluster through the SFPs on by-monthly basis, and with other humanitarian partners utilizing the humanitarian hub in Yambio on monthly basis in order to take part to joint responses, will minimize duplication, and promote integrated response, gender and protection mainstreaming, GBV referrals, risk mitigation, and incorporation of HIV/AID and COVID-19 prevention messages.
