1. Background

With the generous support from the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Cordaid together with Netherland Red Cross, South Sudan Red Cross, Red Cross Climate Centre and Wetland International has been implementing the Partners for Resilience (PfR) project in South Sudan since 2016. We aim at supporting resilience building through promoting the Integrated Risk Management approach, which is to incorporate Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Change Adaptation and Ecosystem Restoration and Management in tacking the complex issues of disasters and climate events.

South Sudan has been suffering from recurrent disasters like drought and floods over the years, deepening the food insecurity crisis. Due to global climate change, more extreme weather patterns are observed, leading to more disasters. Scientists forecast by 2060, in South Sudan will be about 1 degree increase in temperature compare to current temperature; worst of all, for 1 degree increase in temperature, there will be a corresponding 20% decrease of rainfall. All these will pose serious threats to the livelihoods of the general citizens in terms of water consumption and food security.
