LEAP- Livelihoods, Early Assessment and Protection

Ethiopia is particularly vulnerable to drought and floods, and may become increasingly so in light of climate change.  Developed by the Government of Ethiopia with support from WFP, LEAP is an early warning-early response tool which triggers contingency funding ahead of severe droughts or floods, to provide food or cash to the people projected to need early assistance.
