The United States Announces Small-Scale Infrastructure Project in Support of Peace Building Efforts in Abyei

In a further demonstration of its support to a peaceful resolution to the status of Abyei, and consistent with the provisions of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) and the decision by the International Court of Arbitration, the United States government is pleased to announce a small-scale infrastructure project to support all vulnerable populations in Abyei. U.S. officials have made multiple trips to Abyei over the past few months and, in consultation with all parties, identified several targeted, small-scale interventions that will address urgent infrastructure gaps. These projects will support needed access to water and other critical services and are designed to mitigate potential conflicts during the dry season and foster continued political progress. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has identified $3.8 million in resources to support the rehabilitation of key water yards, schools in Abyei town, and other necessary services for all vulnerable populations in Abyei. This program builds on the emergency food and other humanitarian assistance, primarily in health and clean water that the U.S. government is currently supporting in Abyei and its surrounding areas. For years, the U.S. government has provided assistance to the people of Abyei as part of its peace building efforts.
