This webinar shared findings from the RISE I (Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced) endline evaluation, conducted in October 2020. Implemented from 2014 to 2019, RISE I aimed to bolster the resilience of chronically vulnerable populations in agro-pastoral and marginal agriculture livelihood zones of the West African Sahel. Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), RISE I strategically combined humanitarian and development efforts to break the cycle of crises in the region and foster sustainable development.

The session featured a presentation by Tim Frankenberger, President and co-founder of TANGO International, using the Resilience in the Sahel-Enhanced (RISE) Initiative Impact Evaluation: Endline Survey Report to share findings about the impact of the RISE I interventions on households' resilience, resilience capacities, poverty levels, and women's empowerment, against the backdrop of climatic variability, violent extremism, and the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about the RISE initiative here.

Please note that the RISE I research was conducted under the REAL Award, funded by the USAID Center for Resilience, while this webinar is hosted by the RISE II Evaluation activity, funded by the USAID Sahel Regional Office.
