Within ACTED’s fifteen year experience working in Africa and during our fifth year presence in South Sudan, we have been able to expand our support from food security and livelihoods; water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, to the overall Refugee camp management . 2012 also marks the year of innovation and learning for ACTED in our response to emergency and relief, strengthening accountability and transparency mechanisms, while enhancing capacity building of national colleagues and continuing our partnership with the authorities on policies, goals and mutual outcomes.
Through this annual review ACTED reflects on past experiences and capitalizes on lessons learned and feedback. We are aware that challenges will continue to exist within our efforts in the country as we shifted from emergency relief towards disaster risk reduction, conflict mitigation and long-term development planning as a complement to the government strategy. There is room for improvement in the coming years and we welcome every opportunity to make progress.
