R4 Rural Resilience Initiative Quarterly Report Oct-Dec 2014

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 report outlines the key accomplishments during the October to December 2014 quarter.  In 2014, R4 successfully expanded in Ethiopia and Senegal. During this quarter, the localized dry conditions led to insurance payouts in both Senegal and Ethiopia for a total of $38,116. The initiative also started operating in Malawi and Zambia
