Managing Risks to Agricultural Livelihoods: Impact Evaluation of the HARITA Program in Tigray, Ethiopia, 2009–2012

A study to evaluate the impact of the integrated risk management program called the Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation (HARITA), implemented in the Tigray region of Ethiopia from 2009 to 2012.

Farmers in developing countries are increasingly vulnerable to risks posed by weather and climate. The Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation (HARITA) project, now known as the R4 Rural Resilience Initiative, implemented with the United Nations World Food Programme, offers integrated risk management strategies to build farmers’ resilience to climate-related shocks and to improve their livelihoods. Oxfam America commissioned a study to evaluate the impact of the HARITA project in the Tigray region of Ethiopia from 2009 to 2012. The study was conducted by researchers at Columbia University and the University of California, Davis, together with a research consultant in Ethiopia.

This project is now known as R4 Rural Resilience Initiative, implemented with the World Food Programme.
