Date d’approbation : 12 September 2019
Durée : 2019 – 2025

The “Lowland Livelihood Resilience Project (LLRP) is aimed to enhance livelihood of pastoral and ago-pastoralists to external shocks with particular focus on the Arid and Semiarid land (ASAL) communities by implementing capital investment and rural livelihood subprojects. Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) is developed for this project to ensure that adverse environmental and social impacts are minimized, mitigated and appropriately compensated for the asset and land that may be lost due to the implementation of the sub-projects. The ESMF details agreed policies, guidelines and procedures that should be followed in implementing the Sub- projects under LLRP in 100 selected Woredas and Kebeles of the project regions. The proper implementation of the ESMF will ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations of the Government of Ethiopia (GoE), relevant World Bank Operational Policies and Procedures and the International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) Social, Environment and Climate Assessment Procedures (SECAP). In addition, Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) and Social Assessment (SA) documents have also been prepared to deal with specific concerns related to land acquisition, property losses, restriction of access to natural resources and other social issues related to vulnerable groups and underprivileged communities. Since the physical environment and the project nature of the Pastoral Community Development Program (PCDP) are similar to that of LLRP, the ESMF Document of PCDP has been referred to when preparing the ESMF for LLRP. Reference was also made to the Agricultural Growth Project (AGP) when preparing this framework.

The objective of the proposed project is to improved Livelihood Resilience of Pastoral and AgroPastoral Communities in Ethiopia. The Project would help improve livelihoods of people living in pastoral and agro-pastoral areas, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1 (no poverty) ; 2 (zero hunger) ; 3 (good health and well-being) ; 5 (gender equality) ; 6 (clean water and sanitation) ; 8 (decent work and economic growth) ; and 13 (climate action). The PDO-level indicators include : • Number of direct project beneficiaries (disaggregated by gender and age) ; • Percentage increase in yield of selected crop and livestock commodities ; • Increased land area (in ha) under sustainable natural resource management practices ; • Number of people with improved access to economic and social services (disaggregated by service type and gender) ;
