The Resilience through Agriculture in South Sudan (RASS) Project is a USAID-funded project being implemented by DAI LLC, Care International, the Waterfield Design Group, and IFDC. This three-year project (2021-2024) serves as a vital companion to the many humanitarian relief and recovery efforts in South Sudan. By layering, sequencing, and integrating development activities with humanitarian efforts, RASS will aim to improve food security, community and household recovery, and resilience in South Sudan.
