SOUTH SUDAN Table of activities and organizations
SOUTH SUDAN Key gaps identified for 2015 Animal health has been identified as a key gap for 2015 livelihoods programming in Awerial County. Aruda is funded through FAO for small scale vaccination support and training, and disease reporting. However the need for livestock disease treatment and vaccination in the county exceeds what Aruda will be providing. While a number of partners are conducting seeds and tools distributions, a gap of approximately 5,000 vegetable and seed kits to beneficiary farmers has been identified. Skills training and income generation are a small part of the confirmed activities for 2015, however the scale of the activities are small and will reach less than 500 households of over 15,000 in Mingkaman. Fishing kits and tools were distributed by ACTED in 2014. However, for sustainability of fishing activities, there is need to conduct an assessment of the current state of these tools, whether they are being used and how they are maintained if at all. Additionally, FSL members have raised the need for training on improved fishing methods and tools including product preservation and hygiene practices. Fuel efficient stoves need to be distributed at earliest to decrease work load of women and ensure their protection, fuel expenses and environmental degradation.
