Afar is Ethiopia’s least developed region. People struggle with low access to basic services, rivalling tribes and decreasing access to water since the river Awash is drying up due to large scale irrigation. Several droughts hit the region, depleting the herds and so the livelihoods. This project aims to restore the livelihoods in 7 communities and increase their resilience to future droughts.

This project strengthens the capacity of the target community to recover from shocks of drought and get prepared for the future. The project aims to enable 7 adjoining communities reduce the risk of drought to become a disaster through strengthening community organization and their preparedness capacity, implementation some specific DRR measures, improving access to water and improved sustainability for the herds through animal treatment, vaccination, fodder and water access.

Animal feed introduced to support milking and breeding animals in dry season

Improved access to water for humans and animals
