|The Partnership for Resilience and Recovery (PfRR) in South Sudan was established in March 2018. The partnership is a collective response by development partners to help the South Sudanese people in addressing the various economic, environmental shocks which are compounded by the protracted conflict in the country. The PfRR seeks to promote an inclusive, comprehensive and integrated approach that includes peace building, humanitarian and development actors in South Sudan and shifts the focus from meeting needs to recovery and resilience. The PfRR operates under a common, shared, strategic framework, intended to reduce vulnerability and increase the coping capacities of individuals, households and communities to absorb, adapt to and recover from shocks.
The PfRR is managed by a Secretariat located in the Office of the DSRSG/HC/RC. One of the main functions of the secretariat is to collect and disseminate information on the partnership activities across the country. This information is to be accessible to the public through a website for the Partnership, managed by the secretariat staff.
