R4 Rural Resilience Initiative
Quarterly report | October - December 2013
R4 refers to the four risk management strategies that the initiative integrates to enable farmers to strengthen the communities’ food and income security through a combination of improved resource management (risk reduction), insurance (risk transfer), microcredit (prudent risk taking), and savings (risk reserves). R4 has successfully expanded HARITA in Ethiopia and has initiated the implementation in Senegal.
In this report we present key findings of the HARITA Impact Evaluation study in Ethiopia, and the results of the end-of-season assessment conducted in Senegal for the 2013 pilot implementation.
