Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation (HARITA) quarterly report: October 2011–December 2011


This report discusses the Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation (HARITA) project, which is an integrated risk management framework to enable poor farmers in drought-prone areas of Ethiopia to strengthen their food and income security through a combination of improved resource management (risk reduction), insurance (risk transfer), and microcredit (prudent risk taking). It addresses the critical need to build rural resilience for climate change adaptation to address global poverty, focusing on farmers who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. It specifically demonstrates how cash-poor farmers can work for insurance coverages by engaging in community-identified projects to reduce risk and build climate resilience.
