Finalité et objectifs
This project is the second phase of a successful partnership between Ethiopia’s pastoral communities, local and federal governments, the International Development Association and IFAD.
Over the next five years, it will build on the success of the first phase to improve the livelihoods of about 600,000 pastoral and agropastoral households - about 25 per cent of all Ethiopia’s pastoralists.
Pastoralists and agropastoralists make up nearly 15 per cent of Ethiopia’s total population and are among the poorest and most vulnerable rural people in the country. This phase increases the project area from 32 districts to 57 districts in the Afar, Oromia, Somali and Southern regions. Communities there have high illiteracy rates, comparatively low school enrolment rates and very limited access to basic social services in health, sanitation, safe drinking water, transport and communication.
The project has a people-centred, holistic approach and its aims include delivering basic social services, strengthening pastoralists’ ability to withstand external shocks, reducing rural poverty and enhancing economic growth. It will also boost the institutional capacity of pastoral community organisations and local governments.
The overall project design supports Ethiopia’s Plan for Accelerated and Sustained Development to End Poverty (PASDEP) and the government’s rural development, food security and pastoral development strategies and policies.
