The Livelihoods for Resilience (L4R) program operates in four highland regions of Ethiopia to support and enhance livelihood opportunities for chronically food-insecure households. USAID launched the L4R Learning Activity to provide data for assessing outputs, outcomes, overall impact, and performance of the five-year L4R program. The baseline study provides an evidence base against which to monitor and assess the progress and effectiveness of L4R interventions during and after the program. It also supports robust learning and adapting the agenda and a related research agenda.
This brief presents findings of resilience capacities, elements that contribute to well-being outcomes and recovery, and programming implications. Data were collected for households in woredas with active L4R programming and households in woredas without L4R programming, allowing comparison between “intervention” and “control” households, respectively.
