Learn how RLA is building a common understanding and direct investments in resilience-building strategies and interventions.
Chronic poverty and recurrent shocks are driving many of the same 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 both been increasing in frequency and duration.
USAID/Ethiopia’s resilience-building portfolio is among the largest and most complex in the world. USAID support is strengthening households, communities and systems through a systems-based, integrated approach to address the root causes of chronic vulnerability.
The USAID/Ethiopia Resilience Learning Activity (RLA) is a “learning sidecar” for USAID’s resilience investments, working across USAID staff, offices and implementing agencies (projects) to strengthen a culture of learning, sharing, evidence generation, substantiation and triangulation. Ultimately, our aim is to build a common understanding and direct investments in resilience-building strategies and interventions that demonstratively result in more resilient households, communities, and systems. RLA is a five-year learning project implemented by the U.S.-based small business, LINC, from 2022 to 2027.
