Programme
The Enhanced Resilience and Economic Growth Project in the Sahel (REGIS-ER) is a five year project financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Its objectives are to enhance the resilience of the peoples of Niger and Burkina Faso, to improve their food security, and to reduce their vulnerability to climate change-triggered events that lead to frequent humanitarian assistance requirements. REGIS-ER addresses the pillars of food security (availability, accessibility, utilization, and stability) as part of the process of reducing vulnerability of populations in marginal agro-pastoral regions of the Sahel. Through nutrition-led agriculture and livestock rearing, disaster and conflict risk management, improved health services and potable water access, better hygiene and sanitation practices, and management of natural resources in the face of climate change, the Project will reduce the recurrent need for humanitarian assistance after disaster strikes. USAID recognizes that such assistance is expensive, does not address the root causes of vulnerability, and impedes economic growth. The project is an intersection between humanitarian aid and development activities, as it includes planning for possible crises as part of resiliency and food security.
