Baseline Report: Africa Community Resilience Project

The Feinstein International Centre has recently released the first of three reports under the Livelihoods Change over Time research programme. The Baseline Report: Africa Community Resilience Project shares research and programme experiences from Tsaeda Amba Woreda, Eastern Tigray, Ethiopia.

The Africa Community Resilience Project (ACRP) was designed by World Vision International, in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action, as a blueprint to creating resilient communities. The project is research-based and will build capacity for improving resilience through disaster risk management programming and mainstreaming. Tufts University was engaged to conduct the research and programmatic learning. This report provides information on baseline conditions at the household level and at kebele1 level on the institutions responsible for Disaster Preparedness (i.e. that manage risk at the local level). It also provides an assessment of risks and hazards as perceived by local communities and their leaders. The report concludes with some recommendations to ACRP managers.

The full report can be downloaded from: https://wikis.uit.tufts.edu
