Building Resilience to Impacts of El Niño through Integrated Complementary Actions to the EU Resilience Building Programme in Ethiopia (RESET Plus)

To contribute to addressing the adverse effects of el Nino on the resilience of already vulnerable regions and communities, and reduce the effects of forced displacement and irregular migration in the region

Main objectives

To address the structural and systemic root causes of vulnerability and chronic food and nutrition insecurity of populations in most vulnerable areas. There will be a specific focus on targeting rural women and youth who are most vulnerable to food and nutrition insecurity in the context of extreme weather events and climate change. Overpopulation being one of the main global factors triggering migration and food insecurity in vulnerable areas, this intervention will also work on improving the awareness of the impacts of demographic pressure and consolidated family planning practices, ensuring a proper linkage between these practices and resilience
