South Sudan

Mott MacDonald has been active in South Sudan since 1957, initially providing services for water resource management and irrigation development.

We are running the £30 million Basic Services Fund which targets water, sanitation, primary education and healthcare.

Since then we have gained a broad portfolio of experience country-wide from our involvement in creating facilities for refugee communities, post-flood rehabilitation and reconstruction, community potable water supplies, irrigation and livestock watering systems, low-cost housing and rural access roads.

The scope of services we’ve provided ranges from environmental impact assessments and technical assistance to surveys, technical and economic studies and engineering designs.

Basic Services Fund, South Sudan Advising the Ministry of Cooperatives and Rural Development on implementing the first phase of a four-year project aimed at bringing safe water supply and improved sanitation to about 1 million people in South Sudan.
The Government of Southern Sudan has reappointed us to run the Basic Services Fund (BSF), which assigns funds to non-government contractors to provide essential infrastructure and services. BSF’s £30 million budget targets water, sanitation, primary education and healthcare. The UK Department for International Development is among BSF’s principal financial donors.


Education

We are managing the UKAID funded Girls’ Education South Sudan programme, which aims to improve the enrolment, retention and completion rates, as well as levels of learning achievement of 200,000 girls in primary and secondary schools. Our education specialists are working to achieve this through behaviour change communication, cash transfers to girls and their families, grants to schools and practical support to education managers and teachers.

Water

We provided technical assistance to the South Sudan Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation preparing designs and tender documents for 45 separate works, supply and services contracts to build new water systems, sanitation facilities, offices, water laboratories and a 300 bed training centre in over 100 rural and urban communities across the country as well as 600 remote village boreholes. The US$30 million project is funded by the World Bank. We carried out the procurement, management and supervision of all these contracts as well as providing 35 local and international training courses to water departments in every state.

In each community, we worked with local stakeholders at all stages of project development. Some projects were co-financed by the community and we worked to develop new legal frameworks and contracts to enable this.
