Food for Peace Regional Resilience Framework 2.0

Speeches Shim

The Horn of Africa Resilience Network (HoRN) supports USAID’s mission to end extreme poverty and promote resilient, democratic societies. The HoRN comprises USAID missions and offices in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Somalia and from the regional office. The HoRN also consists of USAID implementing partners with programs operating in the resilience-focused and aligned zones of influence.

From 2012 to 2016, the HoRN used the Regional Resilience Framework to guide resilience investments. Informed by evidence and learning over the last four years and as a demand-driven product, the Regional Resilience Framework 2.0 will serve as a common reference for resilience programming throughout the region. It will inform program design to ensure that they are risk-informed and shock-responsive. The framework has real value only if USAID missions and partners understand the kinds of activities, objectives and goals that resilience programming strives to achieve. The following narrative elaborates the framework. We anticipate that it will generate critical thinking that leads to action for those who wish to use resilience as a lens through which to positively impact vulnerable individuals, households, communities and systems.
