USAID/Ethiopia’s Resilience Learning Activity (RLA) is a “learning sidecar” for USAID/Ethiopia and its resilience partners.
Activity Term: Aug. 5, 2022 - Aug. 4, 2027
Chronic poverty and recurrent shocks drive many Ethiopian communities into crisis year after year. From acute events like disease outbreaks, extreme weather and conflict, to protracted issues such as weak governance, ethnic strife and drought, severe shocks and longer-term stressors have increased in frequency and duration — and will continue to increase in the future.
USAID’s resilience-building portfolio in Ethiopia is among the largest and most complex in the world. USAID support builds resilient households, communities and systems through a systems-based, integrated approach that addresses the root causes of chronic vulnerability.
USAID/Ethiopia’s Resilience Learning Activity (RLA) works across USAID staff, offices and more than 20 resilience-focused projects to strengthen a culture of learning, sharing, evidence generation and evidence-informed decision-making. Ultimately, RLA aims to improve and scale resilience-building strategies and interventions that demonstratively increase resilience. RLA is a five-year learning project implemented by the U.S.-based small business, LINC, and its partners, Environmental Incentives and JaRco Consulting.
