R4 Rural Resilience Initiative
Quarterly report | July - September 2014
The R4 Rural Resilience Initiative (R4) is a strategic partnership between Oxfam America (OA) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). R4 was initiated in 2011 to respond to the challenges faced by food-insecure communities enduring increasingly frequent and intense climate disasters and other shocks. The program builds on the initial success of HARITA (Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation), an integrated risk management framework developed by Oxfam America, the Relief Society of Tigray (REST), Ethiopian farmers and several other national and global partners.
This report outlines the key accomplishments during the July to September 2014 quarter, as well as highlights the two studies on gender mainstreaming conducted in R4 pilot and expansion areas in Senegal.
