The R4 Rural Resilience Initiative (R4) is a strategic partnership between Oxfam America (OA) and the UN 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. This quarter marks the introduction of R4 in the semi-arid lands of Kenya. During this quarter, the registration of participants started in Ethiopia and Zambia, while preparatory activities for the implementation of R4 have taken place in Senegal, Malawi and Kenya. This report presents the end of season assessment in Senegal, which triggered small payouts of US$ 69,039 for 1,896 participants for the 2016 agricultural season.
