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.
- Strengthen local systems’ and community groups’ capacities to sustain gender responsive, diversified, and market-sensitive agriculture production.
- Increase the availability of, access to, and utilization of diverse, safe, and affordable diets in South Sudan.
- Expand opportunities for sustainable, locally-driven livelihoods.
- Graduate communities from high Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC)
to low IPC Acute Food Insecurity (AFI).
RASS is led by DAI LLC and implemented together with IFDC, Care International, and the Waterfield Design Group under a USAID-funded budget of $24,000,000.
