STORYLINE:

Citizens in Yambio, South Sudan celebrated the launch of a Partnership for Recovery and Resilience which aims to re-establishing access to basic services, restoring productive capacities, rebuilding institutions, and nurturing effective partnerships.

Civil society leaders and women’s groups are ready to take ownership for implementing this new agenda to ensure it is inclusive.

SOUNDBITE (English) Christine Joseph Masande, Women Representative Yambio:
“It’s we now to make sure that we implement whatever we have signed among all the 11 points agenda that we have already documented. We have to be accountable and responsible for it and ensure that we deliver a quality service to our community and ensure that the protection of women, empowerment of women, young boys, youth groups, local leaders, all these people are on board without discrimination.”

Local community members recognize the potential of the region, particularly the fertile land for agricultural production. Realizing this potential and reaping the benefits of this new partnership is dependent upon a lasting peace in the country.

SOUNDBITE (English) Alain Noudéhou, Deputy Special Representative, United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS):
“Many people here have told us that they are tired of conflict, they are tired of war and they want now to have a situation where they can recover and start to talk about their own development. And with the peace agreement that has been signed, we all continue to say it is important for the peace agreement to hold. It is important for the peace to remain. It is important for the fighting to stop, so people all over the country particularly in Yambio can start to move forward with their aspiration for recovery and toward development.”

To fuel these aspirations, the government of the Netherlands committed 9 million US dollars to the partnership programme….

And national and international development partners, UN agencies, and local communities exhibited the full variety of produce, services, projects and support that each stakeholder is bringing to the partnership table.

But community members acknowledge that they are themselves the most important stakeholders in the mix and moving the region – and thereby the country – forward depends on them.

That’s why in the 11 point agenda, you see us talking about building our capacities, so that we champion our own development, which we think no one can do for us.
