As a result, one in two South Sudanese 6 million people are facing emergency levels of food insecurity. As part of this programme, ACTED seeks to enhance livelihoods to accompany refugees towards self-reliance and support them in improving their lives. One of these activities has consisted in the establishment of Village Savings and Loan Associations VSLA — 15 groups have been created in20 more ineach of them comprising of 30 members.
A VSLA is a group of people joining efforts to save together and take small loans from those savings. Its purpose is to introduce simple saving and loans facilities in communities — such as the refugee community in Maban — that do not have access to formal financial services.
A very simple system for a powerful result.
Back in the Blue Nile, before the conflict Adam is 45 and a father of five children. Amongst other things, tea, onions, salt, washing powder or coffee could have been found in his shop. He also used to sell to other smaller retail shops and with the profits from his business, he would hire people to work on a piece of land that he owned.
But inwar began and Adam took his family to flee the fighting. He first arrived in Jamam camp before moving to Gendrassa camp in The sorghum and okra he grows there helps complementing the food ration he receives for his household at the distribution representing 15 days of food per month. He also mentions that he learned a lot from the FFS programme and that he keeps sharing his knowledge with other community members who are also interested in cultivation.

With the medium term strategy implementation period coming to a close inthere exists increasing interest in evidence and results realised post implementation aligned with specific objective to promote socioeconomic self-reliance as well as overall protection and solutions for refugees.
The current decentralised impact evaluation is timely and relevant as it occurs within an ecosystem of changes in strategic direction aimed at promoting a new way of working that supports refugees self-reliance based on improved livelihoods, expansion of economic opportunities, greater economic inclusion and support to local economic development for hosting countries through responsibility sharing.
At the time of drafting the strategy, as of 31 December ; the population of refugees waswith a profile of The refugee population keeps increasing due to new arrivals mostly displaced as a result of ongoing conflict in South Kordofon and Blue Nile state in Sudan.
Refugees population as of Octoberis approximated at overindividuals 69, total households and an estimated household size of 6. Sudanese refugees are currently hosted in Unity and Upper Nile. Current impact evaluation will be undertaken in Upper Nile, Greater Maban which hosts approximatelyindividuals in four refugee camps namely Doro, Yusuf Batil, Kaya and Gendrassa camp where livelihood interventions have been supported as from to date.
The evidence generated will be used as a baseline for updating to refugee livelihoods and economic inclusion strategy for South Sudan. Specific Context Overview Armed conflict, political instability, localized host community-refugee tensions coupled with adverse effects of climate change in neighbouring Sudan and within South Sudan; has contributed to massive displacement of approximatelyrefugees currently settled in four refugee camps namely — Doro, Yusuf BatilKaya and Gendrassa in greater Maban, upper Nile of South Sudan.
Refugees, host community and other displaced persons find themselves in precarious socio-economic situation with many reporting food shortage as a major concern.
Markets continue to function poorly in Maban and procurement of goods as well as services locally is significantly limited. Market growth has been largely compromised by poor market structures to facilitate trade, limited skills set, weak entrepreneurship base, limited financial capital and economic shocks owing to hyperinflation and devaluation of the South Sudanese pounds.
Refugees have limited access to external markets in Maban; water scarcity, erratic rainfall, increased incidence of pests and disease continue to negatively impact agriculture yield.
Limited start-up capital and access to finance remains a major constraint for refugees and vulnerable host community to be able to meaningfully participate in the local economy.
It is against this background that UNHCR jointly with implementing partnerships has commissioned the impact evaluation for accountability and learning as strategy implementation period lapses.
