General

The present project is the Ethiopia Component of the first regional Drought Resilience and Sustainable Livelihoods Program (DRSLP) in the Horn of Africa (HoA). This operation seeks to improve livelihoods and resilience of the pastoral production system in 15 Woreda (districts) in the Afar and Somali Regional States of Ethiopia. The interventions will support activities to rebuild existing livelihoods through investment in natural resources (water, pasture) management, integrated land management and ecosystem restoration and protection and also investment in agricultural and livestock infrastructure, while improving storage, market and transport infrastructure, such as rural roads.

Objectives

The project aims at addressing the root causes of the region’s vulnerability in order to build a medium to long-term resilience against drought, enhance peace building and conflict resolution and equitable utilization of the limited natural resources. It will offer a sustainable and long term solution to the drought, floods and livelihoods issues in the HoA.

Target Groups

The DRSLP I will focus on about 4 million beneficiaries in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya. The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in the Horn of Africa (HoA) will also benefit
