Deadline: 10 February, 2021

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has announced a call for proposals for small grants to provide legal aid to the Access to Justice, Security and Human Rights programme.

The programme aims to strengthen the rule of law and human rights, creating the conditions for people to experience peace and security, enjoy their human rights and actively fulfil their societal roles in South Sudan’s Jonglei State and Greater Pibor administrative area.

Jonglei and Greater Pibor are among the most conflict affected areas and remain highly fragile and unstable due to the armed conflict that erupted in 2013, 2016 and the subsequent intercommunal violence of December 2019.

The upsurge in the organised and intercommunal violence between the Murle, Lou Nuer, and Bor Dinka communities has led to loss of lives, destruction of property, and forced thousands of families to flee their homes.

The programme aims to provide legal aid to vulnerable groups including women, girls, SGBV survivors, elderly and returnees in Duk, Pibor and Akobo in South Sudan.
