Evaluations and Research

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Food for Peace (FFP) awarded funding for four multi-year development food security activities (DFSAs) in Ethiopia. The 2016-DFSAs aim to enhance resilience to shocks and livelihoods, and improve food security and nutrition for rural households vulnerable to food insecurity.

This brief presents findings from a study of resilience using DFSA baseline data collected between July 4 and August 21, 2017. The research examines the shocks that occurred and how households coped, and what elements help households mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses in ways that reduce chronic vulnerability and facilitate inclusive growth.
