In Kenya, 23 of 47 counties are considered arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs). Many constraints have and continue to negatively impact the resilience, food security situation and socio-economic development of the ASALs of Kenya. USAID’s Partnership for Resilience and Economic Growth (PREG) brings together multiple humanitarian and development partners that work with the Kenya National Drought Management Authority and county governments to coordinate resilience and economic growth activities to strengthen resilience among the vulnerable pastoralist communities in nine ASAL counties.
By 2014, USAID-supported resilience programs implemented in the ASALs in northern Kenya were subsumed under the PREG Partnership umbrella. This included the Resilience and Economic Growth in the Arid Lands (REGAL) projects. As a result, the PREG I endline survey draws heavily from the REGAL Impact Evaluation design, but with several significant adaptations. The main body of this report presents findings from a pre-post analysis of PREG resilience programming activities for its first five-year phase (i.e., PREG I), which ostensibly represents a transition from REGAL to PREG.
