Livelihoods for Resilience Activity
CARE Ethiopia along with partners is implementing the Livelihoods for Resilience Activity. Livelihoods for Resilience works in 27 woredas in Tigray, Amhara, and Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Regions, with a goal of contributing significantly to reduced food insecurity and increased resilience for chronically food insecure households in highland areas. The purpose is to enable 97,900 chronically food-insecure households enrolled in the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP) to graduate from the PSNP with long-term resilience.
This document describes the Livelihoods for Resilience strategy for building resilience of its targeted households. It provides an overview of key concepts as they are understood by the project, and describes the domains of change that comprise the resilience approach. It also describes the key project approaches and activities, and analyzes their potential to contribute to resilience.
The strategy recognizes that resilience is a cross-cutting issue and identifies key issues for consideration, especially related to climate change, across the different approaches and key activities in order to maximize the contribution to resilience. Finally, it identifies questions related to the resilience approach that may be incorporated in the project’s learning agenda. The aim of the strategy is to provide the Livelihoods for Resilience technical team and partners with guidance to integrate resilience thinking into all relevant aspects of project implementation.
