Title: The Role of Plan –Sudan in Sustainable Rural Development A Case Study of Ed Duwiem Governorate, White Nile State
Author: Arebi, Mona Bashir Mohamed
Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the contribution of Plan Sudan in the process of sustainable rural development in Ed Dwiem Governorate, White Nile State. Plan Sudan is an International non-governmental organization which established Ed Dwiem Programme Unit in 1994 with the aim of improving the livelihood of the rural households in targeted area. The organization adopts the integrated rural development programme which depends basically on the community based participation approach through the involvement of village development committees (VDCs) in all stages of development process (planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation) and the activation of other community through a based organizations established during the project life (i.e. Cooperative Committee, Agric. Committee, .. etc.). Plan-Sudan also involves government units in the development process. The study used the descriptive statistics method as a tool of analysis. Both primary and secondary data were used, primary data were obtained through the field survey by means of use of a structured questionnaire, and secondary data were obtained from the organizations documents, theses, official reports and other relevant sources. A multi-stage random sampling procedure was used to select 104 respondents (52 registered and 52 non-registered) from 8 villages to constitute the study sample. The main results obtained from the study indicated that the organization has contributed to social change through the participation of the beneficiaries in the building of social capabilities and the strengthening of community-based institutions, which is reflected in improving social services in the area (i.e. water, health, education and others). However, the organization contribution in the field of income generating activities was weak. The study suggests some recommendations mainly expansion on basic services (health, water, education, ..etc.) in such a way to be in sustainable manner with the participation of beneficiaries, establishment and encouragement of community based organizations and linking that with good training to ensure sustainable local leadership of the development process at the end of the programme, establishment of revolving funds under the supervision of VDCs to guarantee the sustainability of development process, and introduction of more income generating activities to improve beneficiaries living conditions.
