Titre : Building Community Resilience to Potential Shocks and Reduce Vulnerability to Natural Hazards in Rayitu Woreda of the Oromia Region (Ethiopia)

Country : Ethiopia

Sector : Environment and Global Climate Change

Project Timeline : 10/01/2013 - 09/30/2016

Project description
Improve the humanitarian situation and increase the coping capacities of populations vulnerable to recurrent drought hazards and their effects Poverty remains particularly intense in the Rayitu pastoral woreda (district) of the Oromia Region, in terms of low income, reduced food consumption and high vulnerability for the risk of sudden drops in income. Due to their vulnerability and limited capacity to manage risks, communities are often trapped in a downward spiral of food insecurity and poverty. Successive years of shocks triggered by droughts, floods, diseases and conflicts led to increased vulnerability and destitution of the woreda’s communities. This activity trains local governments and communities on disaster risk management, and provides technical support in constructing and/or rehavilitaing water sources and natural resource management interventions.

Objectives : Increase resilience to recurrent drought risk through enhancing community and local actors capacity to plan and implement community managed disaster-risk mitigation plans.

Total obligation : $200,000
