Kenya’s arid and semi-arid lands region has been adversely impacted by a legacy of drought emergencies, human conflict, marginalization by the government, and poverty.

This brief documents the preliminary analyses of data from the first three rounds of the second cycle of the PREG II Recurrent Monitoring Survey (RMS). A more detailed analysis of interventions will follow RMS Round 4 data collection. The objective of the RMS is to provide real-time data on household resilience capacity during the course of—or in the immediate aftermath of—an actual shock with the goals of understanding the nature of the shock, how households are coping with shocks, and the degree of their resilience to the effects of shocks.
