Full story text Since 2014, Binta has participated in the R4 Rural Resilience Initiative which is helping her better manage her natural resources and cope with more frequent droughts. The aim is to ensure food is on the table all year long, while also expanding her sources of income.

The first assessment of the programme in Ethiopia shows that female participants are the ones obtaining the greatest gains in productivity. Now, two recent studies performed in Senegal further show how the programme is strengthening women’s ability to adapt to climate change. R4 helps them strengthen their families’ food security and livelihoods through a combination of risk management activities which reduce the impact of weather uncertainty, and the damage caused by disasters.

Short story text R4 Rural Resilience Initiative: An innovative resilience-building initiative implemented by WFP and Oxfam America is helping farmers like her break out of chronic food insecurity.
