This brief explores how Livelihoods for Resilience households in Tigray and Amhara regions leveraged their knowledge, skills, and assets to cope with the northern conflict in 2020-2022, and to rebuild their livelihoods after the conflict. The brief draws on Livelihoods for Resilience endline survey data collected in June 2023 and qualitative research conducted in April and May 2023, and on Biruh Tesfa monitoring data. The synergies achieved through the layering of Biruh Tesfa and L4R illustrate the benefits of nexus programming with increased alignment of humanitarian and development programming—made easier, in this instance, by the fact that both projects were implemented by the same team. Their combined effort resulted in a significant impact on resilience through sustained asset ownership and a reduced need for food aid.
