USAID’s four-year (2021-2025) Resilience through Agriculture in South Sudan Activity will improve food security and community household recovery and resilience in 13 target counties, reducing long term reliance on humanitarian assistance. To achieve this ambitious aim, DAI will improve the effectiveness of local systems and strengthen the capacities of community groups to achieve gender responsive and diversified market-sensitive production; facilitate increased production of diverse nutritious foods by strengthening productivity, reducing food loss, and improving nutrition behaviors; and strengthen and expand household and community opportunities for sustainable, locally driven livelihoods. The RASS Activity will apply the resilience pathways approach. This approach entails implementing interventions iteratively and modifying them as circumstances change to ensure that households and communities have increased social cohesion, stronger local structures and capacity, and productive and sustainable diverse livelihoods to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses; and graduating them from high to low Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) levels. Hence, reducing dependency on emergency humanitarian assistance and enhances the transition to inclusive development assistance and economic growth.
