What is resilience?

Adaptation of households through diversification of their livelihoods and asset base in order to cope effectively during harsh seasons. Households and communities are thus able to go through shocks without eroding their productivity or assets.

SomReP approach to resilience

SomReP’s approach acknowledges likely climatic shocks, stresses and other related risks in targeted pastoral, agro-pastoral and peri-urban livelihood zones and explicitly designs programme components to promote the local adaptive capacity of households and communities, while building institutional capacity, strengthening the natural resource base and preventing loss of lives and livelihoods through early action.

Cross cutting issues

The programme recognises the following pertinet issues that are crucial in its resilience programming. These are gender focus, conflict sensitivity, ecosystem health and advocacy. In all these livelihoods interventions are tailored to ensure that programming is functioning.
