The Pastoralist Areas Resilience Improvement and Market Expansion (PRIME) project was implemented from 2012 to 2017 in one of the most shock-prone areas of the world, the drylands of Ethiopia. The project aimed to enable pastoralist households and those transitioning out of pastoralism to withstand and recover from the recurrent climate-related shocks—mainly drought—to which they are exposed.

The objective of the PRIME impact evaluation was to determine whether and how the project’s resilience-building interventions enhanced households’ resilience and its underlying determinants, their resilience capacities, in the face of this severe shock. This fact sheet reports the key findings and program implications of the evaluation.
