Contract Ref
Better Aid in Conflict (BAC) South Sudan
THIS IS A PRIOR INFORMATION NOTICE (PIN) ONLY AND NOTIFICATION OF AN EARLY MARKET ENGAGEMENT (EME) EVENT. The Better Aid in Conflict programme will support the international aid effort in South Sudan to be ‘conflict sensitive’, minimizing the negative effects (risks) and maximizing the positive effects (opportunities) of all forms of aid, so as to contribute towards peace and stability whenever possible. The UK will provide funds towards the establishment of a multi-donor Better Aid in Conflict programme in South Sudan from 2018-2023. The governments of Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland will contribute funding in line with their budgets. The programme will fund a Conflict Risk Facility. The facility will support donors and their implementing partners to ensure that aid does not drive conflict, including through manipulation and diversion, and instead makes the maximum contribution possible to peace and stability. This will be achieved by: a) Offering an advisory service that includes research and analysis, developing practical tools, coaching and training, and facilitating reflection and problem-solving for those in the aid community facing difficulties related to conflict and risk mitigation b) Hosting outreach events to increase understanding of issues related to aid and conflict, including through establishing a ‘Better Aid Forum’ in which aid actors, diplomats and peacekeepers share knowledge of conflict sensitive approaches, and reflect on and adapt their programmes and policies and improve collaboration. There will be an early market engagement event for this component held on 14th March 2018 in London, UK and Juba, South Sudan. Registration on this portal is to receive all communications and updates on this opportunity.
