R4 Rural Resilience Initiative

Annual Report | January to December 2016

The R4 Rural Resilience Initiative (R4) is a strategic partnership between Oxfam America (OA) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). R4 was initiated in 2011 to respond to the challenges faced by food-insecure communities enduring increasingly frequent and intense climate disasters and other shocks. The program builds on the initial success of HARITA (Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation), an integrated risk management framework developed by Oxfam America, the Relief Society of Tigray (REST), Ethiopian farmers and several other national and global partners.

This report provides an update on key R4 achievements from January to December 2016 and outlines some of the successes from the 41,867 farmers who directly participated in the program. It also provides an overview of the final impact evaluation of R4 Senegal, which demonstrates how the program has been effective at limiting the negative impacts of climate shocks on the food security of smallholder farmers.
