Danida has provided DCA and partners with 18 million DKK in 2021 for several projects covering Humanitarian Mine Action, Humanitarian Assistance and Development Support to vulnerable communities across several locations in South Sudan.

The funding is divided into three categories:

  • Mine Action: Saving lives for safer communities 
  • Humanitarian Assistance: Improving Food Security and Livelihoods Support of Conflict, Pandemic and Disaster-affected households in South Sudan 
  • Development Support: 
    • Supporting community structures to promote safer communities, peace building, food security and livelihoods, reduction of GBV and equal opportunities and rights for all in Budi County of Eastern Equatoria State, South Sudan
    • Integrating Gender Based Violence and general protection in education programming in Yida, Ruweng Administrative Area, South Sudan
    • Community empowerment and resilience building for conflict-affected population in Nasir, Upper Nile State, South Sudan 

In 2021,Danida supports DCA to implement five projects covering humanitarian mine action, humanitarian assistance and development support across five states/administrative areas of South Sudan in collaboration with 6 local partners. 

The demining intervention aims at reducing the threat of landmines and other Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) on South Sudanese communities in Eastern Equatoria state, affected by decades of conflict and armed violence. Through the release of land cleared from ERW and the disposal of explosive hazards, lives will be saved while contributing to improved access of local groups to land for income generating opportunities and community services. Moreover, Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE) awareness activities and trainings will benefit at-risk groups, spreading safe practice knowledge and behaviour to reduce the threat of contamination on local communities.
