The Accelerating Recovery and Resilience in South Sudan (ACCESS) activity is an emergency food security project funded by USAID through the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) and implemented by World Vision in collaboration with two sub-recipient partners, Nile Hope (NH) and Humanitarian & Development Consortium (HDC), in the Upper Nile State region of South Sudan. In a region where at least 50% of the population is facing acute or crisis-level food insecurity, the activity aims to accelerate recovery and bolster resilience by strengthening household livelihoods, agricultural productivity, and nutrition; community cohesion through improved disaster risk management, protection, and mental health psycho-social support services; and coordination, systems, and learning on recovery and resilience. This case study examines how ACCESS supported community members to create committees focused on various risk areas to mitigate, and respond to, challenges associated with disasters, conflict, and other pressures.
