STORYLINE:

Peace and development cannot be achieved in isolation. That was the guiding principle behind UNMISS Deputy Special Representative Sara Beysolow Nyanti’s maiden visit to Torit, Eastern Equatoria.

Following a courtesy call on the state Governor, Ms. Nyanti’s first stop was the newly commissioned Torit meat market, funded by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), where she spent time with traders and community members who were out and about for a bit of shopping.

Nyanti said she was “really excited” to be in Eastern Equatoria, her first field visit, because she could look at “humanitarian development and peace across the three hats” that she wears.

“I wear the hat of deputy within the UN mission; I wear the hat as the head of development coordination as Resident Coordinator; I also wear the hat as Humanitarian Coordinator for humanitarian coordination in South Sudan. With those three hats, I stand here today, uniquely, to look at this state from three perspectives; and to look at where there can be an intersectionality of the work we do, and our team reflects that,” she explained.

Nyanti and her delegation also visited the Torit Vocational Training Centre, where the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is running training sessions in masonry, carpentry, plumbing, tailoring, electrical and information technology to build livelihood skills among beneficiaries, thereby boosting their ability to generate income.

On the final leg of her tour, Nyanti and her delegation participated in an ad hoc Partnership for Recovery and Resilience forum, attended by all peace, humanitarian, and development stakeholders in the state.

It was a busy day for the UN Peacekeeping mission’s Deputy Chief, but a productive one.

“What I have achieved today is having constructive engagement with the Governor of Eastern Equatoria state, the partners on the ground, the team that came with me representing the donor community, UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes, UNMISS, and us looking together at how we can operationalize [the] humanitarian, development and peace nexus,” she said.

For Nyanti, the visit also helped “identifying places, areas where it’s possible to start to speak about development and start to take it forward towards nation-building for South Sudan.”
