R4 Rural Resilience Initiative
Quarterly report | January - March 2014
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).
In this report, we share key accomplishments from the January- March 2014 quarter, and present results from the end of-season assessment conducted in Ethiopia in December 2013 season. The report also highlights the Savings component of r4 in Senegal and explains how it leverages Oxfam America’s Saving for Change (SfC) program methodology.
