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. USAID’s Partnership for Resilience and Economic Growth (PREG) initiative brings together multiple humanitarian and development partners who work with the Kenya National Drought Management. 

As part of the impact evaluation for the PREG II initiative, this report documents the analysis of data from the first year of the Recurrent Monitoring Survey (RMS) in nine ASAL counties. 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.
