The Project: The Justice Service Delivery Project (JSDP) II is an $85.5 million, 5-year investment operation funded by the ARTF. JSDP will assist the Government in the implementation of the National Priority Program (NPP) in the justice sector, the ‘National Program for Law and Justice for All’.  The project supports the Supreme Court, the Ministry of Justice and the Attorney General's Office in balancing the demand for and supply of core legal services, and in increasing the productivity of legal service providers. The project aims to encourage specialization and close collaboration between various service providers; to align the structures, processes and capacity of justice institutions to the needs of users; and to improve access to legal information for legal professionals, justice institutions and the public. The project builds on and expands reforms which were supported by the $27.75 million, Phase I Justice Sector Reform Project which closed on December 31, 2011.

The current JSDP seeks to mitigate the impact of the Transition, put the justice system on a sustainable path for long term results, and improve service delivery.  The project consists of four interrelated components: (a) Partnership for Justice; (b) Legal Empowerment; (c) Organization and Capacity of Justice Institutions; and (d) Implementation Capacity.
