Sudan infrastructure services project : community mobilization handbook

This Handbook describes the process that was incorporated in the community mobilization for the Juba to Nimule (JN) Road Project, but in a way that will be generic and applicable to any community development mobilization effort, on any Task Order. The Handbook aims to serve as a guide to community outreach and engaging local communities impacted by Sudan Infrastructure Support Project (SISP) activities, using the SISP Community Development (CD) Team’s first activity, the JN Road Project, as an example for future SISP Task Orders that involve CD activities or require community outreach and mobilization. The initial task of the CD Team has been to mobilize local communities along the Juba to Nimule Road to: 1) Ensure that all the impacted communities understand the Project; 2) Ensure local community participation in the Project to the extent possible; and, 3) Provide a mechanism / local forum for the exchange of information and problem solving; and 4) Act as the liaison between the communities, and the Project and Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS). To this end, the Handbook will lay out the process that was used to organize the communities into Community Mobilization Committees (CMC) and to provide a guide for maintaining this relationship with the communities throughout the life of the JN Road Project. The Handbook will also provide information to the Berger project management concerning the activities undertaken by the CD Team with the communities, the scope of the information that has been provided to the communities, and a guide to the community committee structure that has been established within which project management can work.

Abstract

This Handbook describes the process that was incorporated in the community mobilization for the Juba to Nimule (JN) Road Project, but in a way that will be generic and applicable to any community development mobilization effort, on any Task Order. The Handbook aims to serve as a guide to community outreach and engaging local communities impacted by Sudan Infrastructure Support Project (SISP) activities, using the SISP Community Development (CD) Team’s first activity, the JN Road Project, as an example for future SISP Task Orders that involve CD activities or require community outreach and mobilization. The initial task of the CD Team has been to mobilize local communities along the Juba to Nimule Road to: 1) Ensure that all the impacted communities understand the Project; 2) Ensure local community participation in the Project to the extent possible; and, 3) Provide a mechanism / local forum for the exchange of information and problem solving; and 4) Act as the liaison between the communities, and the Project and Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS). To this end, the Handbook will lay out the process that was used to organize the communities into Community Mobilization Committees (CMC) and to provide a guide for maintaining this relationship with the communities throughout the life of the JN Road Project. The Handbook will also provide information to the Berger project management concerning the activities undertaken by the CD Team with the communities, the scope of the information that has been provided to the communities, and a guide to the community committee structure that has been established within which project management can work.
